    just picked up a cool auto on a multi knife trade.
    It is a
    Protech Rockeye Shaw Sterling Skull Proto
    My question is what does proto mean and how does this differ from one that is not a proto?
    Thanks,
    CB

    Photos or your proto don't exist.

    Then we'll help.

    Your GoogleFu is weak, young one.

    First of all I am anything but young.
    Perhaps if I was a bit younger I wouldn't have such problems uploading pics here.
    Almost every time I try to load a pic it fails.
    I can email pic to you if you like

    Proto just makes it a bit more rare and usually just a bit more valuable. I can ask Les (the knife designer) how many there are though Tubtar has the protech connection which might be better (Dave from protech is awesome.)

    Cool thanks. I have never seen that on a knife before.
    I'm glad it is a good thing.

    Sorry your help desk post wasn’t answered to your immediate satisfaction.

    Forum policy is clear: Smart ass comments are appreciated and admired.

    If you get sand in your vagina while here, it’s your responsibility to rinse.

    Fuck, frankly you better get some thicker skin or stop asking dumb questions.

    If it ain’t me, someone else will make a wise crack.

    It’s the JD.

    Thank you for the tip.I emailed Dave and he was very helpful.
    I found out that this knife was one of only 30 made, which is pretty cool.
    Thanks again .
