Cons: Blade Sharpness
Good Quality
As an everyday carry, the Mantis performs quite well. It can in perfect condition with one of the best padded boxes I've ever seen with a knife. As a general utility knife it preformed adequately, however, you may find that the steep angle of the blade can make for frustrating box cutting. All in all, the knife exceeds expectations but I would have preferred a sharper blade out of the box (required extensive sharpening out of the box).

Cons: Blade Sharpness, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Pocket Clip
Good knife for self defense, very dull
The delivery was very fast and the knife is very good quality. There is no blade play and it is comfortable for hold. If the edges of the handle were more rounded it would be perfect. The knife needs to be sharpened a lot as it is very dull out of the box. The blade is a chisel ground so it is only sharp on one side.

Cons: None
Ring a bit small
This is a good blade, I have practiced with it extensively and found it to be durable enough. It is a good deal for the price and I recommend it for everyday carry. I do have a size 11.5 index finger and the ring is extremely tight. Just something to be aware of if you have larger digits.
