The Manticore-E is a mid-size, double action, out the front, automatic and the Everyday Carry solution in the Manticore line from Heretic Knives. Retaining the same countered, 3D machined, aircraft grade aluminum handles and traction scallops, the Manticore-E offers a secure and comfortable grip with fast, smooth, double-action operation. This version comes with a Battleworn black DLC coated Elmax recurve blade, fluted black aluminum handles, and matching Battleworn clip and stainless-steel slide.

Brand new, direct from Heretic Knives.

Blade: The sleek, single edge recurve blade offers balanced performance and durability, finished with a blasted and tumbled Battleworn black DLC (Diamond-Like Carbon) on the grinds for discreet use and satin flats and spine for two-tone style. Double action automatic operation is fast, smooth, and decisive. Press the stainless steel stepped pyramid thumb slide up to open and down to close.

Handle: Black anodized aluminum handles offer over 4.5 inches of real estate to fill the grip while still offering ease of carry. The contoured handle has smooth chamfered edges paired with strategically placed scallops and fluted milling for a perfect blend of comfort and traction. With markings on the spine and rear mounted screws, the knife retains a clean look. High traction stainless-steel slide, integral lanyard hole and hardened steel glass breaker complete the construction.

Carries via a right-hand stainless-steel deep carry clip.

Bohler Elmax: Bohler Elmax is a popular choice for high-end user grade knives. Elmax is comparable to American CPM-S30V/S35VN in terms of edge retention, toughness, and sharpening with a slight improvement in corrosion resistance.
