Brand new, direct from Protech Knives, USA.
Blade: This Malibu comes with a sub-3.5″ blade made from premium, American Chad Nichols Damascus steel for a striking look. Etched to bring out the pattern welded layers, the Damascus blade easily catches the eye while the Whanrcliffe profile delivers solid performance in use. 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 solid titanium, the handles are 3D milled with a grooved texture for visual appeal and added traction and given a stunning blue anodized finish. Subtle finger grooves give optimal comfort in the hand and the sweeping angle of the handle aligns the blade for better ergonomics in use, locking the hand in behind the integral flipper tab guard. An added custom touch, the interior of the handles are jeweled complementing the MOP inlaid button of the locking mechanism which 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 satin finished stainless steel hardware and a solid G10 back spacer.
Carries via a right hand, tip-up, satin stainless steel deep carry clip.
Nichols Stainless Damascus: Stainless Damascus offers the performance of a modern stainless steel while delivering a unique look from the pattern welded layers and acid etched finish. Available in multiple patterns, stainless Damascus gives a knife a striking and singular look. Nichols Damascus is composed of AEB-L and 304 delivering excellent corrosion resistance and toughness with good hardness for edge retention.
