Mantis Knives

Besides exquisite design and advanced technology, one of the most appealing aspects of a Mantis Knife is it's exclusivity. Mantis Knives founder, Gary West, highlights ... If you're carrying a Mantis Knife, it would be a rare occasion to see another Mantis Knife peeking out of a strangers pocket. The hand-built nature of our knives dictate the limited production and thereby, the exclusivity.

Blade Materials
A good blade combines good edge retention, ease of re-sharpening and rust resistance.

S30V is the best blade steel available. It is a high vanadium stainless steel with even higher edge retention.

154CM and BG-42 are two custom steels with much higher carbon content, giving them higher hardness ratings and dramatically higher edge retention.

420HC is a stainless steel that provides excellent rust resistance, is easy to re-sharpen and has good edge retention.

Handle Materials
A good handle should feel solid and well constructed when you hold it. We suggest you consider a handle style and material that meets your needs and suits your preferences.

An ergonomic design provides comfort.

A rubber or textured handle provides a sure grip in wet conditions.

A wooden handle adds beauty to the knife.

Plastic/Composite handles are durable under extreme conditions.

Mantis Knives stands behind each and every product with an unconditional lifetime warranty.
