Protech has added a spring assisted model to their Tactical Response lineup, the TR-5. Similar in design to the TR-4 auto, the TR-5 is smaller and more pocket-friendly. The assisted opening mechanism was developed by custom knifemaker and designer Matthew Lerch. Unlike most spring assisted knives, the TR-5 offers almost instant Assist engagement that is powerful. Sufficient force is required to activate the mechanism, providing an added measure of safety. Best of all, the Protech TR-5 Assist is legal to carry in most places.

This TR-5 model has a black anodized aluminum handle with a two-tone black back spacer/lanyard attachment, and a deep carry tip-up pocket clip. The blade is stonewashed and outfitted with a thumb stud opener. The plunge lock enables safe use and provides solid lockup. Protech's TR-5 is an impressive addition to their lineup and boasts their longstanding build-quality and performance.

This is a limited Pre-Production Run of 200 numbered knives.

Nice but with issues
Joel M.
I have a CA legal protech auto and really like it, so I naturally wanted to move up to a bigger blade. As with all protech knives the quality of materials and build are top notch. The one major issue I have with this knife is that deployment is awkward and uncomfortable. Maybe I will become more proficient in time but for now I'm going to give my sore thumb a rest.
another great protech knife

I already have the tr-3 swat, rockeye auto and the CF sprint. The tr5 was a little hard to open at first but snaps open with authority with little effort after playing with it for a week. The build quality is just as impressive as all the other protechs And.the blade also came nicely ground and sharp as hell.I would highly recommend this to anyone that wants to own a auto without really having to buy one. lol
