Shipping costs are calculated automatically when you checkout. Orders to P.O. Boxes or military addresses require shipping via USPS.

Orders placed by 3:00pm EST will be shipped the same day. All orders shipped USPS (including Express) may take an additional business day to process and ship. We strongly recommend shipping UPS if you need guaranteed delivery by a certain date.

Layaway Information

Layaway Policies

We offer a layaway plan on select products so you may pay for your order over a period of 60 days. Products that are eligible for layaway will show "Layaway Available: Yes" on the product page.

Here's how it works:

The total amount of the order excluding shipping, tax, or fees is divided into three (3) equal payments. The first payment is due with the order, the second payment is due 30 days later, and the final payment is due 60 days after the order.

There is a $15 non-refundable fee for layaway orders. This fee is added to the first payment along with the shipping and any tax. The first payment is made when the order is placed.

Example: Your order total is $300 plus $12.75 shipping and handling. If you select the layaway option, your payments would be:

  • $127.75 (1/3 of purchase = $100 + $15 layaway fee + $12.75 shipping)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)
  • $100.00 (1/3 of purchase = $100)

If your initial payment is made by credit card, we will automatically process the 2nd and 3rd payments at the appropriate time using the same credit card information. You will be reminded via email that a payment will be charged. If you need to change this for any reason, please contact us.

For payments made other than credit card, payment must be received within seven (7) days of the due date or the order is subject to cancellation. You will receive a reminder via email that a payment is due.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for prepayment.

Additional products may be added to a layaway order without penalty. A new payment schedule will be calculated based on when additional products are added.

If you wish to complete payment early and have your order shipped, you may contact us at any time during the 60 day period. There is no penalty for early payment.

Cancellations of layaway orders are subject to a restocking/processing fee of 10% of the order total (not including tax and shipping costs). This restocking fee is in addition to the $15 non-refundable layaway fee.

The 2023 LUDT Gen III is the pinnacle of Microtech's legacy and a refined iteration of the renowned Underwater Demolition Team knife. Originating in the mid-1990s, the LUDT swiftly ascended to become one of Microtech's fastest-selling knives in history. After a temporary hiatus from Microtech's lineup, we are delighted to announce the resurgence of this iconic blade.

The LUDT showcases a meticulously crafted blade featuring a crowned spine, thumb ramp jimping, a reinforced tip, and now a blood groove/fuller, ensuring unparalleled penetration effectiveness without compromising on structural integrity. The finish on the blade not only enhances its aesthetic appeal but also contributes to its exceptional durability. The handle, with 3M Traction Tape seamlessly integrated into the design, elevates this knife to the status of an ideal everyday carry (EDC) folder.

Every detail, from the actuation button to the pocket clip, has been refined and improved, ensuring a harmonious and sophisticated overall appearance. The handle, precision-machined from aircraft-grade aluminum, not only imparts robustness but also keeps the knife's weight minimal. With its ergonomic design and lightning-fast deployment, the LUDT stands as an exemplar of excellence in an all-encompassing blade.

With a proven track record that has withstood the test of time, the 2023 LUDT Gen III makes a triumphant return to the lineup. This distinguished tool now features Torx screws and a dedicated lanyard hole, adding both practical utility and an extra layer of security to its meticulous craftsmanship.
