The Protech Knives Sprint is a California Legal automatic knife that is one of the lightest and thinnest automatic knives available. This is a high performance Gentleman's automatic that carries like a feather and performs like a razor. The Sprint features all the modern materials, high tech manufacturing, advanced coil spring mechanism, and American production quality that Protech prides itself on. This model of the Sprint has a Black DLC coated, plain edge blade made from CPM S35VN and Solid Silver Hard Anodized aluminum handles.
Brand new directly from Protech Knives, Made in the USA.
Blade: The Sprint comes with a California Legal, sub-2" blade made of American CPM S35VN stainless steel. S35VN provides a great balance of edge retention, corrosion resistance, and toughness making it an excellent choice for all around use. A mid-length swedge gives the Sprint a fine point that can be used for detailed cutting tasks and the black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) coating enhances corrosion resistance, is hard wearing and offers a discreet, non-reflective finish for use. The blade deploys via a button operated coil spring mechanism that is fast and smooth for easy one-handed operation.
Handle: A contoured, tapered handle made of Solid Silver 6061-T6 Hard Anodized aluminum keeps the Sprint compact and lightweight while still providing plenty of grip for secure use. This is a true Gentleman's knife that disappears in the pocket. The Sprint is as at home in a pair of dress pants as it is in jeans making it a great choice no matter where you are going. The knife is finished off with satin hardware and a rock solid button lock mechanism.
Carries securely via a tip-up, right-hand only, black coated stainless steel, deep carry pocket 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 of the 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.
