The Malibu is Protech’s exciting entry into the manual flipper market. Highlighted by its silky smooth action and featherweight nature, the Malibu is an EDC force to be reckoned with. The Malibu comes with two blade configurations: 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.

This model comes with a reverse tanto blade which is specially good at utility tasks with a slight belly and strong useful tip. The ergonomic handle is milled aluminum with a tapered shape and finger grooves that really allow for a solid, non-slip grip. The deep carry clip is set-up for right-hand, tip-up carry and a tiny lanyard hole is built into the single-pieces handle scales and backspacer. This knife reminds us of a mixture of a Kershaw Leek and a Benchmade 940 knives which are two of the best EDC knives available. This model features a black DLC blade and black aluminum scales.

IT’s everything you heard

The action on this flipper is as smooth as butter. Build quality is better than excellent. if you are looking for top-of-the-line, Protech is your answer. One final thing, shipping was excellent. Is everything every company should be.

Great knife and store

Actually my second Malibu, also have a magnacut but really wanted the reverse tanto. This one is my favorite. Little more power to the flip because of a little more weight in the blade than the wharncliffe. Like the texture in the handle, adds grip you miss in regular anodized aluminum. Great fit and finish. Shipped from North River fast and well packaged. Good seller.
