Mantis Knives

The MK-3vXb "Encore" is a result of Mantis and it's collaboration with it's owner's association (the Mantis Militia). The material usage in the spine/spacer of the knife has been changed from aircraft aluminum to stainless, then PVD coated. The ambidextrous clip actually allows the user to carry the knife in either pocket while still having access to all the great quick-out options. The clip even has a logo that can be read upside down or right-side up!

Pros: Handle Feel, Weight, Pocket Clip, None
Cons: Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Blade Material, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Not very well constructed
Screws falling out as if they're held in by some cheap glue, also the one sided edge put me off as well, not my type of knife as well as not the type of knife for any consumer in mind

Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Blade Sharpness, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type
This is a really cool looking knife, but unfortunately there are too many things wrong with it. The knife showed up with a completely dull blade like a "trainer", no edge at all. The blade wasn't centered in the handle when closed, it leaned hard to the right and rubbed on the handle when opening. Once the blade was out, it was loose and sloppy. It moved side to side quite a bit even when locked. The very worst thing though was it had these cheap plastic nuts holding the pin going through the blade and the second time I opened the knife one of them fell off! It looks like it was held on with a dab of glue. I'm extremely disappointed with this knife and will be returning it. Do yourself a favor and buy something else.
