If you are planning on a Microtech Combat Troodon, you better have a strong thumb because this knife has a mighty strong spring.

Also don't gob a lot of oil on the blade, as it will cause the blade to derail.

If you have this happen just spray into the knife with Hoppes Blast&Clean, this will get you back to normal operation, and beats sending knife back to Microtech.

I bought a Microtech Ultratech (2018 Blade show special) and it does have strong springs, but I can still operate it with my somewhat arthritic thumbs. Good solid knife. I like it a lot.
I tried several upper end (cost-wise) OTF knives at Blade and was unable to operate some due to the spring strength.

Glad to hear one of the forums members were able to get the Microtech knife show special, I also have the microtech UltraTech it's a smaller knife and the spring is a lot less strong very easy on my poor thumb.

I only have 3 Auto knives...that'll probably change since Scott introduced me to Pro-Tech. They make a great auto. The action on it is so crisp. It locks up tight. Sorta opens up like it's running away from you.
I was gifted this Calmigo by a great friend, THANK YOU. It will not be my last auto.

I got interested in auto knives with the first knife I collected - from a Russian sailor in 1966.
I like the custom auto's. One is by Gail Lunn, who names her knives. This is "Black Gold" - Double Action using both an auto button or a thumb post with actual California Gold Nuggets.

I was on a Navy Destroyer tied up in Naples, Italy. Across the pier was a Russian Merchant ship. I had taken Russian in High School, so I was trying it out on a sailor from the Merchant Ship.
He wanted a US Flag and offered to trade for it. I said I didn't have a flag, but I had a pen with a US Logo.
He got an officer from his ship to come over and approve the trade. I learned later it was probably the "political officer" that was required whenever a Russian ship went to foreign ports.
I ended up with a Spanish made "switchblade" that was very sharp and opened with a quick snap. I still have that knife.

So you're saying you started the collusion David? Just a fake news story of course.
