Microtech Lightfoot LCC Knife
Greg Lightfoot is a famous and popular Canadian Knifemaker, member of the Canadian Knifemaker’s Guild, and all ’round cool guy. He lives on a farm in Alberta, and consequently also sells his designs to a select few production knife companies, Microtech being one of them. Microtech produces the Lightfoot LCC in both manual and dual action automatic versions.
As usual, Microtech has done an extremely fine job of crafting this knife to perfection, and it’s similarties to custom knives from Greg are astounding. I would have to say that the knife feels more custom than production, which is quite the compliment. You can snag one for around $200 on the secondary market in it’s manual configuration.
Steel on this fairly large folder is 154CM, like much of the stuff from Microtech. Bolsters are a bead blasted Titanium, with Carbon fiber used on the handles. Liners are also a bead blasted Titanium, giving it the classic tactical folder look and feel. The wide handles work well with gloves as well as bare hands as do the thumbstuds.
A very nicely designed folder from Greg Lightfoot, and perfect fit and finish from Microtech means you are getting an outstanding knife, for a reasonable price. Overall this is one of the better values out there, with custom quality materials and performance, for production knife pricing.
