Makora II D/A
May 6, 2009
Dear Blade Ops. I recently purchased a Michrotech Makora II D/A. I was delighted when the Makora II arrived. The Makora II is a finely made tool with a superior fit and finish. Wobble in the blade is virtually non-existent. The spear point blade is both attractive and functional with a very graceful width to length ratio. There is a drilled hole pattern near the hilt of the blade. I don't know that the drilled hole pattern performs a function other than esthetic value. However, the drilled hole pattern appears to be a weak place in the blade but it does look good. The OTF blade extends and retracts in the blink of an eye. The Makora II does not have a safety to keep from operating the trigger accidentally. Therefore, the trigger is rather difficult to operate and may take two hands for both opening and closing. He handle is long and slim and may be uncomfortable or difficult for someone with large hands or wearing gloves. The Makora II comes with two interchangeable butt buttons (for lack of a better word) that screw into the handle. One has a hardened round end the other has three sharp prongs. I think the hard button is for breaking glass and I can't figure out the function of the three prong button. I would appreciate input on this feature. I would recommend the Makora II to anyone in the market for an excellently made OTF knife. It will suit those with average size and very strong hands the best. I hope this helps other purchasers of fine knives. Respectfully, Tye D
