Overview

Pro-Tech has added a spring assisted model to their Tactical Response lineup, the TR-5. Similar in design to the TR-4 auto, the TR-5 is smaller and more pocket-friendly. The assisted opening mechanism was developed by custom knifemaker and designer Matthew Lerch. Unlike most spring assisted knives, the TR-5 offers almost instant Assist engagement that is powerful. Sufficient force is required to activate the mechanism, providing an added measure of safety. Best of all, the Pro-Tech TR-5 Assist is legal to carry in most places.

This TR-5 model has a black anodized aluminum handle with a two-tone black back spacer/lanyard attachment, and a deep carry tip-up pocket clip. The blade is stonewashed and outfitted with a thumb stud opener. The plunge lock enables safe use and provides solid lockup. Pro-Tech's TR-5 is an impressive addition to their lineup and boasts their longstanding build-quality and performance.

Features:

  • Drop point blade made with CPM-S35VN steel with a stonewash finish.
  • Thumb stud opener.
  • Black aluminum handle with jimping.
  • Durable button lock.
  • Deep carry pocket clip for tip-up carry.

Comes with original box and papers. Excellent condition.

About the Maker

Lerch, Matthew

"I specialize in interframe and integral folders with each knife being individually crafted using the highest quality materials available. The character of each knife depends on the components and customizing techniques. I offer unique, patented mechanisms for the fun factor. Artistic carving is another skill I use to add dimension. For steels and engraving, I seek out the finest artist in their individual crafts. With these combinations we are able to offer truly unique pieces. I enjoy the multiple challenges that knife making presents. When I make a knife I must consider mechanisms that are reliable, smooth, and easy to use; materials that meet physical demands, and optional enhancements that dress up the tool. Bringing all these aspects together to make a knife that works, feels good in your hand, and is attractive looking is my personal goal. Matthew's work often incorporates Damascus, exotic natural materials, engraving, and file work done by his Wife, Mary Jo. Matthew has been making knives since 1984 and has been a Journeyman Tool and Die maker since 1981."
