Pro-Tech Malibu Flipper 5201 – Stonewash CPM 20CV Reverse Tanto Blade – Smooth Black Anodized Aluminum 7075 Handle – Tactical Black Tip-Up Mini Deep Carry Pocket Clip – Manual Button Lock Pocket Knife w/ Flipper Tab | Made in USA
Everything that goes into making a Pro-Tech knife happens in California, USA. Originally begun by a former middle school teacher, David Wattenberg, the company now produces a huge selection of high-quality US-made knives and is one of the world leaders in the manufacturing of automatic pocket knives. From their Les George-collaboration SBR autos, to awesome Malibu flippers, to perfected camping fixed blades, Pro-Tech has many sharp things to offer for the everyday knife enthusiast. With minimalistic designs, the knives that come out of Artesia, CA all have incredible action, as their Malibu is known as one of the smoothest button lock flippers on the market, and all of their push button autos have a surprisingly snappy action.
All of Pro-Techs main-line knives are built with reliability and function in mind, and they also often collaborate with many of the knife worlds biggest designers to create highly sought-after custom made pocket knives featuring materials such as Damascus steel, “Mother of Pearl” push buttons, ivory and maple burl handles and more. Innovation is at the core of Pro-Tech’s custom shop, and all of their readily available products have some sort of characteristic that makes them unique. If you haven’t had the chance to own a Pro-Tech, now is the time. They often come out with brand new designs and models, so keep an eye out for something from this reliable US-based company that will suit your needs and style.
The hype behind the Pro-Tech Malibu flipper is warranted. An incredibly smooth manual button lock, the Malibu has taken over the knife industry as nearly everybody who gets their hands on one is blown away by its high-quality. While the lock-up on these bad boys is incredibly strong, it only takes a light flick of the flipper tab to get the blade out and ready for use. A nice drop-shut action caused by a press of its perfectly sized and placed button lock, the Malibu makes for the perfect fidget knife, but can step up to the task whenever you’ve got a job to tackle. Due to Pro-Techs unique button lock detent system and their crisp breaking detent release mechanism, the Malibu is one of the smoothest opening flipper knives you’ll find. Made in the USA with a minimalistic and quick-to-clean open-backed design, the Malibu is just ideal as an easy-use manual everyday carry knife. With a handful of different models, you’re bound to find a Malibu flipper that you’ll need to add to your collection and/or carry rotation.
This Pro-Tech Malibu comes equipped with a CPM-20CV blade, finished with a rugged but classy stonewash. With a modified reverse tanto shape, you’ll have no trouble getting all of your daily cutting tasks done throughout the day. These “base” models of the Malibu come with a smooth 7075 aluminum handle with ultimate durability, and this one's handle is finished black. The mini deep carry pocket clip is outfitted for right handed use, is tip-up, and is finished with a black DLC coating. All other hardware including the push button are stainless.
Please research and be aware of your local knife laws before purchasing and carrying a pocket knife.
