MNTMK2: MK-2 Cinq 2
Mantis Knives

Mantis Knives describes this item as follows:

The sibling to the first of our Karambit Fighters. Its tanto style blade is a little less intimidating, but no less functional. Just as its two brothers, the MK2 boasts a frame locking mechanism and type-3 hard anodized spacer. The red ellipse, once again, finds its home at the center of this piece, letting the enemy, or whoever happens to be observing know; you own one of the best Karambit designs that money can buy.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Weight, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Lock Ease of Use
Don't Do It!
For the price, I didn't expect 'too much', but I had this knife about 2 and 1/2 hours, opened it less than 10 times, and it developed blade wobble! I've never, in my life, no matter how Cheap the knife was, had a knife that had blade wobble. I've had P.O.S. 5 dollar, Pakistani flea market knives that were better constructed. I never even knew blade-wobble was a concern before buying this knife.....Stay Away From It.

Pros: Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Blade Material, Lock Type, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip
Due to my state's and city's knife laws i was looking for a knife that could reliably protect me and at the same time keep me legal. The Mantis Karambit is it. This knife is made to be a defensive weapon I would not use this as an every day knife. Pros: -Quality and American Made -fits in my hand and I have larger hand. -Sturdy locking devices -Very cool looking -Good ergonomics Cons: -Pocket clip in wong spot for right handers. - Blade is sharpened on one side. I would really appreciate a dual side blade. Overall this Knife is a great buy, for those looking for protection especially for those in a state or city with restrictive knife laws. It is quality American made product that I am proud to carry
