TacKnives MTU5 OTF series offers various blade styles. The body of the knife is black with a window breaker at the end. The OTF switch is located on the face of the handle. Many users find that when the switch is on the face of the handle, the action is a lot smoother and easier. If the blade is double-sided, then the knife is operable by right-handed or left-handed. If the blade is one-sided such as Tanto or Drop Point, then the knife is only operable by right-handed because the clip is not reversible.
The middle insert is black G10.
For MTU5BDE, the blue on the blade is done by thin film deposition. Then the pattern on the blade is lasered out. The blade is 440C.
