The Pro-Tech Malibu is a fashionable flipper knife with every bit of precision you've come to expect from Pro-Tech. This rare knife has a silky ball bearing action and a numbered First Production Run. It flies open with the flipper action, with no springs attached, so it's legal in more places (like Malibu, for instance).

Pro-Tech Malibu

This knife is incredible. I highly recommend you buy it and stop reading reviews. NRO has fast shipping, so don't worry about that.
The deployment and lockup are as solid as they come on this blade.
Why are you STILL reading this? Buy the knife and stop worrying what your wife thinks about how you spend money. If she can't respect CPM 20CV and a unique blade shape with a stock deep carry pocket clip, she ain't the one.

Pro-Tech Malibu Reverse Tanto Button Lock Flipper 5201

This knife has become my new EDC. The quality is superb from lockup, ergonomics, fit and finish to materials. My buying experience with North River Outdoors was great. I was notified when the knife was back in stock and it was shipped promptly after ordering.
