Pro-Tech Knives at SHOT Show 2015

Pro-Tech TR-3.51Pro-Tech Knives of Artesia, CA had a strong presence at SHOT Show 2015 with some of the most eye-popping semi-custom folders of any booth.  The top knife is the TR-3.51.  The Bruce Shaw engraved inlay is a “coin struck” skull scene.  Its satin blade just killed.

Edition.  Excuse the oil around the pivot point and blade in the photo.  These knives were getting quite a workout from the 64,000 attendees!
