The ProTech Tactical Response series are fantastic knives. I have a TR2 with a desert sand handle that I carry about 4 or 5 days each month. The TR3 line of knives just got a couple of very cool additions. Just released are the TR3 with carbon fiber inlay on the top handle scale. This modification takes an extremely functional and durable knife into the realm of uber stylish. This already great knife now looks like it would be at home in a penthouse suite or any boardroom. Like all the knives in the TR3 series, it does have a lanyard hole at the base and also has a pocket clip for pocket carry. This fast opening auto knife is ready for shipment.
