Brand new, direct from Protech Knives, Made in the USA.
Blade: The SBR comes with a more EDC friendly, 2.625″ blade made of premium stainless Damascus from Chad Nichols that delivers a stunning visual appeal and modern performance. There is plenty of cutting edge for utility work while still retaining the classic full-bellied lines. A nearly half length swedge makes for an exceptionally fine point that gives this slicer some piercing power. The blade deploys via a button operated coil spring mechanism that is fast and smooth giving you quick access when the seconds count. The George logo is proudly engraved on the back.
Handle: The ergonomic handle is made from solid stainless steel and provides a comfortable in-hand feel with a comforting heft from the added weight. The knife deploys smoothly from the pocket for use thanks to the flat back. Knurling milled into the front of the handle provides added traction as well as visual appeal along with the the two-tone finish: horizontal satin on the flats and black on the edges, chamfers and milling. The button lock mechanism provides reliable lockup and smooth operation. The button is inlaid with beautiful Mother of Pearl while all other hardware has a complimentary satin finish.
Carries via a DLC coated, right hand, tip-up, deep carry stainless steel pocket clip.
Stainless Damascus: Stainless Damascus offers the performance of a modern stainless steel while delivering a unique look from the pattern welded layers and acid etched finish. Available in multiple patterns, stainless Damascus gives a knife a striking and singular look. Nichols Damascus is composed of AEB-L and 304 delivering excellent corrosion resistance and toughness with good hardness for edge retention.
