Mantras are meant to be repeated. In the case of the Spyderco Mantra 2, that repetition takes the form of a truly advanced flipper-style folding knife design that shares many of the same qualities as its brother, the Mantra. These include a precision-machined ergonomic handle with twin solid titanium scales, a robust Reeve Integral Lock (R.I.L.) mechanism with a hardened stainless steel interface, and a lightweight, easy-to-clean, open-backed construction style.
The Mantra 2’s unique blade is crafted from high-performance CPM M4 tool steel—a powder metallurgy steel specially formulated for toughness, superior wear resistance, and edge retention. The 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 will be donated to The National Parkinson Foundation.
