Do you guys remember the splash or "Jazz" anodizing Dave used to use on the ProTechs? It was AWESOME and far superior in appearence. What happened is that the look became so popular that the company that used to do it priced themselves out of the knife market and started doing artsy hardware for rock star guitars and other high end customers. I liked the old school "Jazz" and worked it out to have them do some of the old school cool anodizing on some ProTech knives.

We got short run of prototype Dorus and Large Dons done to see how they would look and they are SWEET!!

I'm stoked!! I LOVED these finishes enough to put the effort into bringing them back. We'll be changing up the colors as we go along and have some Jalepeno Runts, Emersons and Godsons in the works.

Here are some pictures of some of these new old school finished ProTech jewels.
This isn't all of them but a good representation. Let me know what you think and what colors and patterns trip your trigger.

It's anodized. This company does alot of paintball guns and guitars. Their coatings are thicker and more vibrant than most and almost look like a fired glaze or polished stone.
