Pro-Tech Malibu Flipper (5205) - 3.24" CPM-20CV Stonewashed Reverse Tanto Blade, Black Textured Aluminum Handle

The Malibu is Protech’s exciting entry into the manual flipper market. The Malibu comes in two blade shapes: a Reverse Tanto or Wharncliffe. Both feature premium CPM 20cv blade steel for unbelievably long edge retention and strength and have a high flat grind to provide a razor cutting edge that terminates in a fine piercing tip. The overall aesthetic of the blade is kept free from markings on the front and back show sides. The Pro-Tech maker’s mark has been hidden from view on the knife’s spine, while the steel stamp is cleverly hidden on the flipper tab, providing a clean form devoid of superfluous markings. The handle features thoroughly refined ergonomics designed to comfortably fit any size hand, sporting a gently curved spine with finger indexing set into the chamfer on the front of the handle. A mini deep carry clip ensures that this slender knife carries discreetly.

What truly sets the Malibu apart from other knives on the market is its amazingly smooth action that can easily be opened and closed with one hand while never placing your fingers in the path of the blade. Protech’s unique tuned button lock detent system provides a crisp breaking detent release when the blade is flipped. This distinct system uses only the button lock itself, with no other detent mechanism necessary. Once open, close the blade with an easy push of the button and tilt of the handle. The blade runs on ultra-smooth ball bearings riding on protective hardened steel washers, which allows the blade to flow gracefully from open to close with nothing more than a light flick of the flipper and push of the button.

The Malibu button lock flipper by Pro-Tech features black textured anodized aluminum handles, stonewashed reverse tanto blade in CPM-20CV blade steel, blasted hardware, and a black deep carry clip.
