Spyderco C223CFP Mantra 3 - CPM-S30V Blade - Titanium Handle

Spyderco's Mantra 3 takes the proven style and functionality of their 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 CPM® S30V® 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.

In addition to offering exceptional cutting performance and reliability, the Mantra 3 also helps support a very worthy cause. A portion of the sales of the Mantra 2 will be donated to The National Parkinson Foundation.

    Three Design Errors

    Posted by Robert Tickle on Aug 8th 2019

    This knife has all the right components and the fit & finish is great, but it suffers from three design errors:
    1) The detent is too weak, so the knife doesn't flip very well.
    2) The flipper hits your finger when you close the knife.
    3) The tip of the blade does not descend deep enough between the scales, so it can nip your finger in your pocket.
    I love the smooth ball bearing action. The carbon fiber/G10 scales look very nice. The compression lock is the best in the industry. Hopefully, the Mantra 4 will fix the design flaws.
