The Protech Spindrift is an exciting new Allen Elishewitz designed fixed blade knife. The Spindrift is appropriately sized for utility and tactical use. It is large enough to handle any task, while not overdoing it with unnecessary bulk. This makes it quick and nimble for close-quarters combat. Allen Elishewitz’s signature on the blade design has a long sweeping edge and extra spine thickness towards the tip of the blade for strength. One of the most impressive details of the Spindrift is the 3D machined and contoured handles that provide both aggressive looks and grip. A Kydex sheath with TEK-LOK belt attachment is included with this Spindrift. Limited edition numbered first production run of 160 knives. They have the serial number and Elishewitz Design logo on the back side of the blade.
