Mantis Knives

Mantis Knives describes this item as follows:

Unlike a Hollywood blockbuster movies, OUR sequel is better than the original. With the implementation of our new, proprietary High Speed Tool Steel: appropriately called M-vX, this "supercharged" version of our original MK-1 "Cinq I" Karambit is poised and ready for action.

The black anodize accents on this piece lend to its stealthy appearance. In fact, there are only two features which identify this knife: one, our menacing logo, and two, the steel-type...just so when your friends (or enemies ask) out of amazement... you can say: "M-vX... only Mantis has it."

Great knife low pro and stealthy.
I bought this karambit to add to my collection of folding knives. I really like the look if this knife. It came fairly sharp out if the box. Of course I did sharpen it . Sharpening this knife was slightly difficult but it did end up with a nice mirror edge that looks great against the black blade. I really like the small size of this karambit.I was fairly surprised that the finger hole fit my hand. I have heard that some people feel the handle is rough on the edges I personally don't find it to be a problem. The knife rides well in the pocket and seems secure despite how small the clip is. The knife was slightly stiff at first but it did smooth out quite nicely with some use. All and all i am happy with it. Fit and finish is decent I did notice one slight imperfection in one of the cutaways in the handle. It looks like when it was milled a small aeria was missed. Not really a big deal though.

Very Nice Knife
Basically, I got the knife for "self defense" (AKA cuz it's pretty). That having been said, it's actually been fairly useful as a pocket knife. It didn't come real sharp out of the box but sharp enough to cut everything I've used it on (plastic, string, whatever) without effort so far. I think the recurved blade helps for that. It seems very well-built, solid locking. Has a great feel in the hand. I have relatively small hands so it's a touch big but should be fine for almost everyone except smallest and biggest hands. Cons, I guess would be that it wasn't very sharp at all out of the box. It's a little bulky but not terribly so. Also the handle might be a tad rough but it hasn't bothered me.
