With the growing popularity of their frame-locks, Buck Knives has added the new 198 Mantis and 199 Pilot. The Mantis is a compact folder that is 3-7/8 inches closed and weighs 3 ounces. The 2-3/4-inch drop-point blade is 420HC steel, finished with Buck's Edge2x technology to ensure a sharper blade that holds an edge longer and is easier to re-sharpen. The Pilot is a full-size, high-tech folder with the same contemporary styling as the Mantis. It has a 3-3/8 inch 420HC steel drop-point blade, with or without serrations, which folds into the 4-1/2-inch handle. It weighs 4.2 oz. and has a stainless steel clip for easy carry.
