Collaborations between a custom maker and a production company are nothing new, but it’s unusual to see two companies joining forces. Burnley tells us the partnership materialized because it made sense on multiple levels. By making the knife domestically, Böker avoids US customs restrictions on switchblade imports. Pro-Tech also has a well-earned reputation for quality and a deep expertise in this field. “I’m honored that two companies that I hold in high regard decided to collaborate for the first time on a product of my design,” Burnley says. “There were a lot of little details I was worried about. But Pro-Tech nailed it.”

Pro-Tech worked with Böker to make the Auto Kwaiken to many of the same specifications as previous production versions. Modeled after the standard size Kwaiken, the auto sports a 3.5-inch blade and streamlined, angular handle inspired by the traditional Japanese kwaiken fixed blade. In addition to the automatic upgrade, the Kwaiken Auto is sporting two other Pro-Tech standards: an aluminum chassis and 154CM blade steel.
