MNTMR1B: MR1-b Aardvark
Mantis Knives

The MR-1b "Aardvark" is the supercharged version of our MR-1 "Isosceles".

We've elongated the blade by 1/4, and we've serrated the base of the blade on this model to provide an excellent platform for a variety of cutting applications. We opted for a light ceramic bead blast finish over the frame and blade of the knife. For color accents, we chose Type-2 hard anodize black pivot washer and spine-spacer.

The shape of this knife is truly extraordinary, but the genius of its design cannot be experienced until it's actually held in your hand.

Pros: Lock Type, None
Cons: Blade Sharpness
Pretty good value
Good knife for the price. The blade had a few rough edges when first opened it - I cleaned them up - this shouldn't have been allowed to pass QC.
