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.

Great edc knife
General use as edc. Love the size and the unique blade design. Like the partial serrated edge for tougher jobs. Would have liked the release part to be a bit more prominent to make it easier.
