The Mantra 3 takes the proven style and functionality of Spyderco’s original Mantra design and expresses it in a practical, everyday carry format that combines a flipper-style opener with Spyderco’s patented Compression Lock. The heart of the Mantra 3 design is its full-flat-ground, leaf-shaped blade, which is precision machined from CPMS30V particle metallurgy stainless steel. Engineered to open equally well with either its index-finger flipper or its fully accessible Trademark Round Hole™, the knife’s opening action is further enhanced by specially designed ball-bearing washers between the blade and the handle’s stout stainless steel liners.
In addition to providing structural strength for the handle, the liners also form the foundation of the Mantra 3’s high-strength Compression Lock mechanism. They are nested within handsome carbon fiber/G-10 laminate scales that have a subtle texture to ensure a positive grip. The butt end of each scale has machined recesses to accept a reversible deep-pocket wire clip, which offers a choice of discreet, left or right-side, tip-up carry.
The Mantra 3 faithfully maintains all the key qualities of its predecessors in a practical, affordable format that is ideally suited for everyday carry.
