Get the Umnumzaan
For some reason I was having a hard time choosing between two pro tech's, (TR-3 and TR-4 manuals) or an (UMNUMZAAN). I could get the pro techs for about the same as the UMNUMZAAN.

Get the Umnumzaan
Protechs. They don't have the refinement of the CRK but they are good quality knives and take a scalpel edge. They're great users and not so expensive you won't actually use it. I've gotten into knives in the CRK price range and found they just sit at home. my real users/carriers are in the $200 range. could be that's just me though. The TR4 has been in my short list a while now.
thanks for the feed back. I went with the pro techs. When I get them I will post what I think about them
just to follow up; I received both tr-3 and tr-4. I am amazed how much i like the tr-4 manual. I can't find a thing I don't like. Tr-3 I also like but have a serious problem with the frame lock. It is very early in it's lock up and it sticks.
Can anyone give some info on the push button lock system on the tr-4. Is it strong how does it compare with the other locks.
The TR-4 is a nice knife for sure. I prefer the Umnumzaan, but, hey, two for the price of one
As for the lock, I don't think you've got anything to worry about strength-wise. As long as there's no blade play, you're good. Just don't go nuts and treat it like a fixed blade.

Very nice photo comparisons. I'm looking for a nice Acies myself -- is that an original or a 2?
And those ProTechs are calling...
Pro-Tech fit and finish is outstanding. Just purchased a Sprint auto for office carry. I have to say, very impressed with Pro-Tech.
Thanks for the feed back. The Acies is the original.
How long did it take your TR-3 to work in. I like the knife and like it to replace my current EDC but the lock drives me crazy.
1. Make sure the lock-tang is clean of any lubricants.
2. Try the pencil trick. Use the pencil to mark the spot where the lock-face contacts the lock-tang.
3. Try the magic-marker trick. Use the marker to mark the spot where the lock-face contacts the lock-tang.
The magic-marker works best for me.
I love the design of the TR4, but the TR3 looks like a perfect EDC.
Great choice of knives.
Thanks for the pictures.
Oh, btw... do you have a Benchmade thumb-stud on that Sebenza?
Obviously, I'm opinionated, but I've had at least ten Sebbies and they all were the same...PERFECT.
In regards to the TR-4 lock, does anyone know if the lock design is similar to the Hogue ex-o1.
