What our customers say

As we are new, there has not been enough customers to fully develop this section.  So, we will share how we started this business.  We started by visiting the Pro-Tech factory, and we were most impressed.  Dave Wattenberg gave us the full tour of the facility.  He was polite and courteous, and he strikes us as an all around nice guy.  But it was extremely clear that he and his crew take great pride in their knives.  The entire experience spoke about quality.  We saw a lady polishing screw heads.   Yes, they take the time to polish each and every screw.  And, they are that meticulous about every step it takes to make their great knives.  After this experience we decided to form Switchblade USA and exclusively sell Pro-Tech knives.

Note, inventory pictures are on our Facebook page.

We now have too many models to list individually.  We stock a full line of Pro-Tech Knives and have the largest inventory in Texas.  We have over 70 different models in stock as of 26 Apr 2018.

Note all models are priced within $6.00 of online prices of authorized online dealers.

Mode of Operation

We sell  high quality switchblade knives, as such, they come at a premium.  The selection of a knife is a very personal decision.  Each one has a very distinct feel.  The functionality of each model is different.  The intended use and mode of carry is dependent on the owner.  With these factors in mind, we believe that these types of knives should be sold face to face.  One should handle these knives before deciding which one to purchase.  So, it is our intention to sell these knives in person at Gun and  Knife shows in the Dallas – Fort Worth and West Texas areas.

In 2018, we hope to expand our venues to include car and motorcycle rallies, and other events. And to develop a direct sales program to sell knives to organizations that would like to have a series of knives made with their logos on them.

We will sell knives via the internet; but it will not be our primary focus.

About our knives

Blade Material

Our standard stainless steel blades are built from 154-CM. This quality American made steel is the perfect blend of strength, hardness, edge retention and ease of future sharpening. Extra efforts are made through the heat treating process; our custom heat treating process assures even hardness.  The other blade materials that we use are CPM-D2  tool steel and S35VN stainless steel.  Also, many of our high end custom knives use very high quality Damascus Steel.

Handle Material

The majority of Pro-Tech knife handles are machined from solid bars of T6 6061 aircraft grade aluminum. This provides excellent strength while keeping our knives very light weight.

Personalize your knife

Our laser engraving capacity allows us to create small to large runs of custom logo knives.  If supplied with a clean black and white computer image (jpg, tif, bmp) we can customize the knives with little to no setup fee depending on the size of the production run.
