    Hi all,
    How about a protech thread?
    I recently acquired a brend model 3 with cf inlays and I have a tr3 inbound .
    I’d love to see other members’ protech collections and hear what everyone thinks.
    I did a search and couldn’t find a protech picture thread, so why not !

    Protech tr4 manual. Action isn't as satisfying as some other knives I got but it's very smooth non the less. Blade came sharp as hell and the bevel was extremely even from the tip to the choil. Fit and finish is great and lock up is solid. Just a beast of a knife.

    That’s a good looking blade. It was either the tr3 or the tr4, went with the 3, but eventually I’ll probably end up with the 4 as well. Protech has an auto tr4 in green, dlc coated, with d2 steel. I really like 4 inch blades

    Perfect timing! I'm slowly growing my ProTech collection. This beauty showed up yesterday. Harkins ATAC D/A auto.

    Blue Monday! Since it was an auto and manual thread, I thought I'd post a photo of both! The Drop/FF/Pro-Tech Mordax and the Pro-Tech Brend 2.

    Seriously thinking of picking one up. Worth the price tag? Any issues at all?

    The milling on the side of the thumb plate is sharper than I expected, but it does grab your thumb and make opening really easy. Otherwise it's perfect. Honestly this is one of the smoothest manual folders I own, and the marbled CF is gorgeous, it basically shimmers in the light.

    It's absolutely worth it to me. I'm pretty new to autos, since I just moved out of NY, but push button autos don't really excite me, I'd rather just have a well executed button lock flipper in that case. I like the odd autos, like the ProTech Magic autos, and D/A autos like this and the Benchmade Serum. I also remember seeing a Blade HQ video in which Dave, the owner of ProTech said that the Harkins is the most time intensive knife in their lineup to make.

    I'm new to BladeForums so let me know what I'm doing wrong before just bitting off my head.

    I tried to post a ProTech knife that I'm unable to find any information about. I have searched high and low and now asking for help to identify it.

    Thanks 0704F9E2-44FC-41E9-8A75-ECD483D0C2BA.jpeg
