The Mantra is a highly evolved flipper-style folding knife that highlights state-of-the-art materials, advanced design features, and classic Spyderco styling. Its iconic leaf-shaped blade is precision machined from high-performance CPM® M4 tool steel—a powder metallurgy steel specially formulated to offer outstanding wear resistance, toughness, and edge retention. The PlainEdge™ blade is full-flat ground for optimal edge geometry and includes both an index-finger flipper and Spyderco’s Trademark Round Hole™ to support a full spectrum of one-hand opening options.
The Mantra’s ergonomic handle consists of two meticulously machined solid titanium scales with a handsome matte stonewashed finish. The reverse-side scale houses a sturdy Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a hardened stainless steel interface that provides steel-on-steel contact of the lock and blade tang. This guarantees solid, reliable lock engagement and a long service life. A reversible deep-pocket wire clip ensures that the Mantra is always poised for immediate use and allows discreet, ambidextrous, tip-up carry. The Mantra 2’s unique blade’s narrow, utilitarian, drop-point profile is somewhat reminiscent of a filet knife, but is ideally suited to a broad range of cutting tasks. Although it includes a Trademark Round Hole™ that proudly identifies it as a Spyderco product, the Mantra 2’s blade is designed only for flipper-style opening. An integral flipper at the base of the blade and special ball bearing washers in the pivot allow the knife to be swiftly and easily opened with a stroke of the index finger of either hand. For convenience and ease of carry, the Mantra 2 also includes a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that supports both left and right-side tip up carry.A portion of sales of the Mantra and Mantra 2 will be donated to The National Parkinson Foundation.
