Description
MNTTA2XLB: TA-2XLB Backbone
Mantis Knives

The Backbone by Mantis Knives rounds out the TA-2XL series. This knife was given a black oxide coating to the deep sweep belly designed blade. It has all the features of the other knives in the TA-2XL series. Like the other knives, Mantis decided to use their own M-vX steel to give you the reliability and edge retention that you all have come to enjoy and expect using our steel.

Bought for $20-30, Worth $20-30
When I saw the original price of this blade, I thought, "Great, I'm getting a really good deal out of this!", seeing as how it was on sale for $20. I then quickly saw why, after the knife arrived. The handle is rubber, but mediocre. Sure it'll prevent the blade from flying out of your hand, but in the end, a piece of plastic would do just the same job. The knife edge came sharp and barely passed the arm hair test after I pressed to hard enough, but the metal itself seems cheap and too light to be anything substantial. Overall, it feels like a $20 knife, save for the sharp edge and clean look. I would say for $20 or mayyyybe even $30 it'd be worth it, but for the original price of $97.95, I would say definitely not.
