Introducing the Microtech Scarab II, a top-tier tactical out-the-front knife built on the renowned Ultratech platform. Crafted for the most demanding environments, the Scarab II shines in high-stakes covert operations. It's engineered to serve a wide range of utility and close-quarters combat scenarios, tailored for qualified law enforcement, military, and government agency personnel. Designed with uncompromising standards for reliability and safety, the Scarab II boasts a dual-action out-the-front (OTF) mechanism that allows seamless one-handed operation for deployment and retraction.


The 2023 edition of the Scarab II brings innovative enhancements while retaining the beloved features of its predecessor. Visually reminiscent of its predecessor, the 2023 model maintains the iconic traction inserts, Torx screw design, glass breaker, and pocket clip, all hallmarks of Microtech's OTF excellence. However, the internal improvements elevate the 2023 Scarab II to a new echelon of performance. Microtech's groundbreaking dual-fuel drivetrain ensures swift and powerful blade deployment, even underwater, without sacrificing speed or action. The redesigned button pocket reduces friction and debris accumulation, enhancing durability and minimizing maintenance needs.
