The Protech Knives SBR (Short Bladed Rockeye) is a utilitarian, compact, every-day-carry version of the Les George iconic Rockeye model, retaining the classic design in a smaller package. The SBR has the same American innovations as the Rockeye, featuring modern materials, high tech manufacturing, advanced coil spring mechanism, and quality American production. This version of the SBR has a two-tone, stonewashed/satin finished S35VN stainless plain edge blade, Blue Anodized aluminum handles and blasted hardware.
Brand new, direct from Protech Knives, USA.
Blade: The SBR comes with a more EDC friendly, +2.5 inch blade made of American CPM-S35VN stainless steel. 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 has a stonewashed finish on the grinds that lends a rugged look and also hides wear well while the satin finished flats employ a classy feel. 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: A just-right scoop-shaped handle made of smooth Blue 6061-T6 hard anodized aluminum provides a comfortable in-hand feel in a variety of grips and deploys swiftly from the pocket for use. This is a highly utilitarian folder that is made for use. The button lock mechanism provides reliable lockup and smooth operation. The button and hardware all have a matte gray blasted finish.
Carries via a right-hand, tip up, stainless steel deep carry clip.
CPM S35VN: was designed to offer improved toughness over CPM S30V. It is also easier to machine and polish than CPM S30V. The inclusion of Niobium allows for the formation of niobium carbides along with vanadium and chromium carbides. Substituting niobium carbides for some vanadium carbides makes CPM S35VN about 15-20% tougher than CPM S30V without any loss of wear resistance. CPM S35VN’s improved toughness gives it better resistance to edge chipping.
