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.

Bad lock stick
Jesse V.
Purchased new, great looking knife but had bad lock stick and was really tough to disengage. I've heard of other people with the same problems. I returned it to spyderco and they said it didn't fall within specs and gave me credit for another knife. Got a sage 2 which is very similar except no flipper and different (but good) steel. Sage 2 does not have the insert on lock bar but closes very easy.
My dream Delica come true.
Matthew P.
It's basically the Delica if you made it with titanium, added a flipper, wire pocket clip and a frame lock with a steel lockbar insert. Detent is a little light, but allows user to use the Spydie hole easily.
I'm impressed

Just got the knife in today. Blade HQ has the fastest shipping, as usual, great service. Not a die hard spyderco fan but I looked at this knife for a few months and finally bought it. You get a lot of quality for your money. It's not cheap but it feels like its worth much more. Handle is very comfortable even with large hands. It is a little slick but the clip balances that by adding some traction. I don't have experience with the M4 steel but it has a great edge, almost comically sharp. Slices unbelievably clean. Lockup is early maybe 30% or so and very solid. The action of the flipper is smooth and addictive. It has been a little tough to get the flipping down because I have catchers mitt type hands, not the knifes fault. The other thing is the thinness of the knife with the deep pocket clip makes it disappear. Great knife for the money, worth every penny.
Flips fine for me
Matt Z.
I initially had the same issue as the other reviewer, but after switching to more of a "push-button" style action, the knife flips powerfully for me 99% of the time. The "light switch" technique definitely isn't compatible with the way this knife is set up though.

Now that I've figured out how best to open it, this might be my favorite knife.
Flipper needs work
Rich C.
Spyderco needs to work on there detent for a good flipper. In my opinion, the detent isn't strong enough to allow a nice explosive flip. If your hand and knife are not aligned perfectly, you'll end up with a half flip. In others words the blade doesn't reach the fully open point. I would say straight out the box, 3 out of 5 flips were successful. Leaving 2 out of 5 failed to open fully. All other aspects are spot on. The Ti handles have that warm feel, not too rough and not to smooth, just perfect. And who doesn't love a wire clip!
