Heretic Manticore-S

Recommended Posts

So I lost my small Protech strider pocket knife and although I loved that knife I wanted to try something different. I’ve owned a microtech in the past and was pleased so started browsing The Hollow Grind YouTube reviews to see what was new or intriguing and came across this Heretic Manticore S. It’s a small smooth body aluminum OTF dagger point. I’ve only had it for about 2 hours but already very happy. Action is easy and smooth but not too easy to work about pocket carry. Great oversized pocket clip with deep carry and glass breaker on the end. Knife is sharp but not Protech-sharp. Just wanted to show it off

No kidding. But how robust is the release on that? Would it easily release if it hit something in your pocket? I usually clip my auto knives to my pocket; but not always.

It’s what I would describe as moderate. Enough to prevent accidental deployment but easy enough to not be a pain. I had a microtech ultratech and it was very hard to deploy in both directions. So much that under distress I’m not sure I could confidently say I could get it out. This one definitely lighter but the button still needs to be slid all the way for the blade to deploy. I carry it confidently in the same pocket as my phone.

Only negative about an OTF is that if the blade hits an obstruction it won’t fully deploy. Not an issue for most uses but if self defense is in mind, something to consider

For some reason all I see is a sound play back.
