Les George of George knives had a very successful SHOT Show 2014. In addition to the introduction of his dagger collaboration with Spartan Blades, a new fixed blade version of the ProTech Rockeye was introduced. ProTech, though mostly known for autos, makes some great fixed blade knives.
The Rockeye Fixed is one of those designs that looks like it can do everything pretty well. The drop point blade has a fairly tall, flat primary grind with a false edge. The handle has knurled G-10 slabs, a deep first finger groove paired with a guard, and a heavily jimped thumb ramp.
This knife is 8.5″ overall with a 4″ blade. It is ground from .17″ thick 52100 steel. That’s right, I said 52100 steel. 52100 is a great steel that I rarely see makers working with any more. The Rockeye Fixed is available in a number of different Cerakote options that range from pretty mild to pretty wild. It comes with a nylon sheath with hard insert.
