The Brend Auto #3 line represents a happy medium between Pro-Tech's Brend #1 (giant) and the Brend #2 (compact) sizes. This Brend #3 has a Chad Nichols Damascus blade with a plain cutting edge. The handle has a special stainless steel body with desert ironwood inlays on the front and back. The pocket clip is tip-up and bronze finished. The Brend automatic knife fires hard and locks up strong, exactly what you'd expect from Pro-Tech .
