Love the little guy



Yes I did take a Tap & Drill to a MT Halo and a DKW Sandshark - you buy them, hell use them I say.


FYI on the little switch - Wow my folks went to Europe back in 1975 and asked what I wanted as a souvenir.
they picked me up a baby stage handled auto - man that's what I call a cool key chain

I got this Protech TR-2 a couple weeks ago. It's not my only auto, but I think it's my current favorite

This one is my favorite auto. A standard issue Severtech with a black coated tanto blade. Built like a tank and fires like a rocket. I don't normally like tanto's or black coated blades (even though I do have a few of each) so after looking around I contacted Brad Southard and asked him to do a regrind similar to a Severtech Spartan only without the serrations. He reprofiled the blade and removed all the black coating, all of it. The finished product was much better than I thought it would be. Brad's a true craftsman and a pleasure to do business with. Here's some pics...

Automag, how do you like the Gerber? I am looking to buy one but can't find a lot about them. What are your thoughts on it?

I like the Gerber and the Kershaw but they would not be my first choice in an auto. My first choice would have to be the Benchmade 9050 probably due to the fact that I have used and carried one a lot longer than the others.

Now there is nothing at all wrong with the Gerber or Kershaw I just prefer the handling characteristics of the Benchmade over them.

That's when you just step down to a "Spring Assist". Instead of a push of button, it's a nudge on blade. The spring on my Kershaw seems as strong and fast as any full auto, but just does not activate until blade moves a small fraction. An ok compromise to stupid laws. Wake up lawmakers...it's a person that does bad things, not their pointy thing of choice.

Next to be outlawed...boxcutters. All warehouse personell must now use butter knives on all packages. Next, screwdrivers. Because they are already exposed and dangerous when pointed certain directions. Then, ladders! Do you know how many involuntary suicides happen from ladders?

Oh, and I love all the pics. Very nice knives.

Sooooooo jealous of you guys - we can't have autos in PA. I have a handful of spring assist models (2 SOGs and a Kershaw) but I've been drooling over Benchmade and Microtech autos for a while.

You can have them, you just can't carry them.
