The Manta

     This knife incorporates my favorite blade shape into the last of the Neptune series designs.  The flowing lines of the largest of the ray family fit perfectly in to this drop point blade shape.  A perfect example of form following function.

Price $149.99 plus shipping in deer antler or brass with walnut handle.

It's always good when form follows function, but it's even better when function is enhanced by form.  That's what this design does.  I always use organic forms found in nature to guide my designs, but sometimes the results surprise even me.  The Manta did just that.  The blade is very similar to the Skinner design, just a more rapidly diminishing grind, but the handle shape is what really makes the biggest difference.  I will not tell you this handle shape is the most comfortable you can use for every sporting need.  I will tell you that it is the best feeling most secure grip you are likely to ever have on a knife with real wood, high gloss handle.  The only potential hot spot is if you hold the knife edge up and pry for a LONG time.  For normal skinning, capping and field dressing work...I have never held a knife that feels more secure in my hand, period!  It's an amazing drop point.
