I’ve been in the Navy for 17 years. I’ve been to Afghanistan and Iraq for a total of 8 combat deployments. The knives I used most while serving were a *redacted*, which served me quite well for the majority of my first deployment until the torsion bar broke. The second knife from *redacted* saw 2 deployments, when it's coil spring broke in the middle of the second deployment. When contacted, both companies sent me a new knife and replacement parts for the old one. Then there’s the Pro-Tech. It saw the remaining five deployments. It still fires as hard as the day it was new. It’s pretty worn, but the damn thing kicks like a mule and cuts perfectly. Not a single loose screw, rattle, “quirk” or anything. In the business that I’m in, we need our gear to work. Every time. Having a nice warranty or backing the product is really awesome but getting a replacement knife doesn’t solve the problem I find myself in when my knife fails to fire right in that moment. My Pro-Tech knife has never put me in that situation. I’m pretty damn happy with Pro-Tech doing it right the first time. Thank you! - Jon
Had a long time customer come in today and just happened to show me his Calmigo. He was in a bad accident this winter and the knife got run over by a car. It was then lost in the Jackson Hole midwinter snow for a week before he managed to locate it and dig it out. Put it back in his pocket and proceeded to open boxes with it everyday for last 3 months. Said to me today "I think the screw is a little loose." I gave it a fraction of a millimeter turn, which it didn't even really need, and it was good to go.
Just thought you would appreciate the testimonial. "Pro-Tech Knives: it might just outlive you."

Your knives are meticulously thought out and consistently have that rare, almost "magic" quality of a blade that begs to be handled. And as for fast, hard locking blades? I believe Pro-Tech is now universally known to have THE most aggressive action...period. Nothing else comes close.
The Knives are great, seems like all Pro-Tech knives are the heat!
“Teams talk about great products and how well they wear in rough environments. But it is something entirely different to experience them in person. Having recently come back from the Middle East I can say with confidence and certainty – my gear will always contain a Pro-Tech knife!
