    Best OTF auto for under $200?

    Ok so i have that makora II but im looking for something under 200 that i can get.. im new to it all so if you dont mind throwing up a post for a noob then by all means give me some suggestions. I would prefer something lightweight, doesnt have to be serrated, and I like black powder finishes.

    MT UDT or UMS gets my vote. You can find a lightly used one for under $200 if you look around a bit. Also Protech makes some killer autos, not sure what they go for, but they make a ton of different colors/finishes of each model, and they are well made

    OTF under $200? That's gonna be tough to come by. There really aren't any OTF knives under $200 that are quality. You can find MT Ultratechs in the $235 - $300 range. The UTX-70 in the $200 - $225 range, but to me it's not worth it as it's tiny. It's actually an Ultratech at 70% the size. Your best bet is to check the For Sale areas in all the knife forums very often. I've found some sweet deals here on JD. I picked up a UTX-70 for $130 and even a Exec. Scarab for $200. Sometimes you're gonna buy something you may have to clean up or fix up a little. The main point is that you have to hunt. I mean look at me, I'm on here at all hours of the day and night looking for deals. But mostly because there is something to laugh at or learn about at any given time.

    Oops, my bad, didnt read it correctly


    But like Tony said, you might be able to find a used Ultratech for right around $200, or if you want a single action you can probably find a Dalton in that price range too.

    There was no Cartoon Network either! You could only get cartoons on Saturday Morning. Do you hear what I'm saying? We had to wait ALL WEEK for cartoons, you spoiled little rat-bastards!
