Mantis MKF-815 Snaggletooth 3

The Snaggletooth series are very interesting folding pocket knives. In the realm of knife fighting, these are very effective weapons. The “bump” on the top of the blade is used in a variety of ways, generally the opponent’s body is utilized to open the main blade. These also have a “little finger” ring that is revealed with a button. This allows for other handling of this knife. It’s a great product and well made and reasonably priced, which is pretty typical of the Mantis products. The KnifeCenter offers a large selection of Mantis products and we ship then around the world.

The Mad Blacksmith Arrives at the KnifeCenter

The Mad Blacksmith Arrives at the KnifeCenter

 

The Mad Blacksmith, better known as Jared West, has a distinct style unlike any other. From his knife designs to his other far out products, you will find a cool new item you know you need but never thought would be a reality. The City Dweller Pen Lanyards are just that sort of item. The idea is to disguise the fact that you have a knife by attaching a lanyard with a 2-1/2″ piece resembling a pen. The execution is the key here and these well done products function exactly as designed. Tie the 550 paracord through the lanyard hole, clip it in the pocket and it’ll be nearly impossible to tell you’ve got a knife on you at all. The Mad Blacksmith stands up for your rights to carry a knife without unwarranted attention or accusation. Check out these bold new lanyards at www.knifecenter.com.

Mantis Vuja De Balisong Karambit

The Mantis Vuja De is finally here at the KnifeCenter and what a cool knife this is! The butterfly karambit – many people thought it couldn’t be done but the genius behind Mantis and QTRM5TR Knives, Jared West, has pulled it off and executed it well. It features a very cool and effective button that locks the knife in both the open and closed positions. It’s not really designed for practicing your flipping tricks as the  lock automatically engages when the knife becomes completely open. It could flip smoother, like a Benchmade 51 or 62, and it could be a little sharper like an Emerson Karambit but it really is nothing like those other knives. It’s in a class all its own with a 2″ M-VX steel hawkbill blade and 7″ overall profile including the rear finger hole so you’ll never have the problem of guessing which one the safety handle is again. Karambits are tactical, defense specific tools and the Vuja De by Mantis Knives is no different, plus it has the cool added feature of being a Bali-Song flipper. Check it out at www.knifecenter.com.

Mantis MSR Friction Folders are Awesome!

Mantis MSR Friction Folders are Cool

These new knives from Mantis are just downright cool knives. Not main-stream style in that they are friction folders, meaning they’ve got an extended tang sticking out the top of the knife when closed. This tang, when opened, disappears into the handle and provides the friction necessary to keep the blade open. It may not look like a real menacing folder but get one in hand and it will definitely change your outlook. The ergonomics of the design are spectacular, absolutely locking the knife in the hand. The finger choil in the blade for the index finger puts you into a great cutting position as well as prevents accidental closure of the knife on your fingers. Mantis is a growing company and they’re producing some really high quality, interesting designs. See this and the rest of them at www.knifecenter.com.

Mantis Civilianaire Coin Knife- Revolutionary!

Mantis Coin Knife
Mantis Civilianaire Coin Knife- Revolutionary!
Mantis Knives- one of the most innovative companies we have ever seen, produces a “revolutionary” product- the Coin Knives. OK, Revolutionary is a play on the fact that these are round, but they are, indeed game changing. They’re small blades that fold into the coin sized handles and can be carried in the coin pocket of jeans. Nobody really uses those pockets anyway, and here is a great use for them! The blades are stainless damascus steel and the handles are G-100 Fiberware (G-10 type material). The blades come out hawkbilled style and are effective for opening packages or envelopes -ie 90% of the tasks for which most of us need a knife. The Civilianaire is based off a Warren Thomas Coin knife design. The coin knife is not a new concept. This version is beyond anything we have seen, however.
So, these are easy to carry, are made of the finest materials and sell for a very reasonable price- what are you waiting for- order one now!
