    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum and more than happy to be a part of it! I've decided to enter the world of otfs and pick up my first high quality one for a reasonable price. After much research into this I found that my best bet would be a resold ultratech. I wanted the blade to be as long as possible but in general it seems that price rises with blade length. The ultratech leaves a little to be desired for in blade length and uniqueness, and I happened to stumble upon a Heretic manticore X for $210. It seems to be a good knife (yes im aware of the marfione history there) but it's nearlyy impossible to find a solid review. I would really appreciate some input regarding whether or not this is a good choice. 2013 ultratech for $180 or Heretic Manticore X for $210? Right now im leaning towards the Heretic but please chime in!

    I have a prototype and am very happy with it. It opens smoothly, feels good in the hand, and is quite sharp. Fit and finish is excellent. And if you have a problem TJ Marfione will handle it quickly.
    Treat yourself and get a brand new knife.

    Great to hear! I'll be getting it today. Is it a solid replacement for a microtech?

    Yes, although microtech fanboys might object.
    What blade grind are you buying?
    I thought I might qualify this. The Manticore has only been around for 6 months.

    I figured that might be the case so it's good to hear from someone who actually owns one. I'm buying tanto. Double edge is slightly more appealing but I love tantos and I found it at a good price.

    Good deal. Mine is a recurve.
