The Protech Knives Malibu is a manual flipper happy to join the Protech family and sports a fast and fluid, flipper deployment and button lock mechanism. This slim folder exhibits all the precision fit and finish we know and love from Protech automatics delivered in a quick operating manual folder. Great for everyday carry, discreet tactical use or as a larger gentleman's carry option. This Reverse Tanto version comes with a CPM-20CV Reverse Tanto blade with our GPKnives Exclusive Acid Washed finish and Blue anodized aluminum handle.

Brand new, direct from Protech Knives, USA.

Blade: The Malibu comes with a sub-3.5" blade made from premium, American CPM-20CV stainless steel. Discreetly non-reflective, the rugged, tumbled Acid Washed finish hides wear from use while the Reverse Tanto profile offers added durability at the tip for powerful piercing performance. Executed with a high saber grind, the blade delivers balanced durability and slicing performance with a gently sweeping belly. Riding on a ball bearing pivot, the blade deploys fast and smooth via the integral index flipper tab.

Handle: Made from milled, hard anodized blue 6061-T6 aluminum, the handles are contoured and machined with subtle finger grooves for optimal comfort in the hand. The sweeping angle of the handle aligns the blade for better ergonomics in use and locks the hand in behind the integral flipper tab guard. The button lock mechanism is smooth, reliable and easy to use. A sleek design and precision fit and finish makes this a perfect choice for Gentleman's tactical carry. Construction is completed with matte gray, blasted stainless steel hardware and inline lanyard hole milling.

Carries via a right hand, tip-up, blasted stainless steel deep carry clip.

CPM-20CV: CPM 20CV is a highly wear-resistant, powder metallurgy stainless tool steel, an analog to Bohler's M390, and offers some of the best corrosion resistance and wear resistance in combination with a relative ease of sharpening. These properties along with a working hardness in the low 60s HRC make 20CV a prime choice among custom and production makers.
