Like father, like son. Most people are familiar with Pro-Tech's Godfather knife, it's big, beautiful and powerful. The Godson is a smaller version of the Godfather with Italian inspiration and American innovation. The Godson features incredible coil spring action that is strong and lockup that doesn't let you down.
This Godson has a black finished 154-CM blade with a plain edge. The handle is solid black anodized T6-6061 aluminum. Black finished TiNi tip-up pocket clip for easy carry.
I ended up buying this knife since I wanted an American-made automatic and a friend of mine deployed with a TR-3 that is still fully functional. The knife is a serious looker but just as functional as any other EDC knife. I've read other reviews saying they bought this knife for self-defense. I wouldn't recommend that as there is no guard to prevent your hand from slipping onto the blade itself. The steel performs as well as any other 154CM blade and the action is super smooth and satisfying. If you're looking for a gentlemen's automatic knife, this is the one to get.
I've owned a couple automatics but she's the first to bite. With that said I love this knife!!! Smooth comfy grip, powerful solid eject of the blade and sshhaarrrpp!!! Thanx Blade HQ!!!
This is my first Protech, but certainly not my last. The auto feature is sick snaps out quickly and locks up tight. It's blacked out and a sleek and simple design. I'll have another one in a month or so,for sure!
I paid closer to the MSRP for the SWAT edition on another site and was happy. At this price, i would give it 6 stars. Fast and smooth action. Quality materials. Nice knife.
They are right when they say that Protech has certain snap. This thing is mean. The quality is amazing. The blade comes razor sharp out of the box, and holds an edge. I love the aluminum smooth handle. Very slick. I consider this my gentleman's EDC.
