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.
