SP202TIP: C202TIP Mantra
The Mantra is an impressive fusion of state-of-the-art materials, advanced design features and classic Spyderco styling. Its high-performance CPM M4 tool steel blade is full-flat ground for superior edge geometry and includes both an index-finger flipper and a Trademark Round Hole to provide a full spectrum of one-hand opening options. It is paired with a handle comprised of two precision-machined solid titanium scales with a no-nonsense stonewashed finish. The reverse-side scale houses a stout Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a hardened stainless steel interface that also serves as an overtravel stop. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip allows discreet, ambidextrous, tip-up carry, while ensuring the Mantra is always poised for immediate use.

Delica on steroids
After carrying a Delica for about three years I was looking a an upgrade. The main thing I wanted was a blade steel that had really good edge retention. After looking for quite awhile I found the Mantra and it fit perfectly into what I was looking for. Comparing this to the Delica, the handle is nearly identical in size but there is a TON more cutting length on the blade. I love the flipper, I can sit and flip it repeatedly. M4 is awesome, it holds a really nice edge compared to VG10. I love titanium, who doesn't? The only thing I've been cautious about is moisture with the M4. I really try to avoid getting the knife wet. I haven't lubricated the blade at all though and I've only seen very, very minor rust pitting in the spyder hole and close to the blade tang. Overall super happy with the knife, love my new EDC!

Spyderco Mantra review
If you like the Delica, then this is a Delica but with a flipper. They are almost identical in size. Handle is a tad shorter but the blade is a little bit longer. The flipper action is nice on my example. I have no experience with M4 steel but I heard it was great, time will tell. The fit and finish looked and felt first rate. The blade was sharp out of the box. Spyderco is my make of choice and this model did not disappoint. I would recommend this model.
