Mantis Knives describes this item as follows:

Unlike a Hollywood blockbuster movies, OUR sequel is better than the original. With the implementation of our new, proprietary High Speed Tool Steel: appropriately called M-vX, this "supercharged" version of our original MK-1 "Cinq I" Karambit is poised and ready for action.

The black anodize accents on this piece lend to its stealthy appearance. In fact, there are only two features which identify this knife: one, our menacing logo, and two, the steel-type...just so when your friends (or enemies ask) out of amazement... you can say: "M-vX... only Mantis has it."

Pros: Weight, None
Cons: Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Handle Feel, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Pretty useless
I was lookin for a smaller size karambit to carry around. Well this is definitely not it. It takes quite an effort to open. The blade isn't sharp and the overall quality is mediocre at best imo. The ring is a bit small for a comfortable grip in my hand and I have average size hands/fingers. Basically my son's cheap $17 karambit was a way better buy. I'm sending this knife back. Very disappointed.

Great knife low pro and stealthy.
I bought this karambit to add to my collection of folding knives. I really like the look if this knife. It came fairly sharp out if the box. Of course I did sharpen it . Sharpening this knife was slightly difficult but it did end up with a nice mirror edge that looks great against the black blade. I really like the small size of this karambit.I was fairly surprised that the finger hole fit my hand. I have heard that some people feel the handle is rough on the edges I personally don't find it to be a problem. The knife rides well in the pocket and seems secure despite how small the clip is. The knife was slightly stiff at first but it did smooth out quite nicely with some use. All and all i am happy with it. Fit and finish is decent I did notice one slight imperfection in one of the cutaways in the handle. It looks like when it was milled a small aeria was missed. Not really a big deal though.
