Got my mantra 3 in the mail a few days ago and I figured I'd share my thoughts. Fit and finish is perfect, very smooth and drops shut out of the box. Almost the same footprint as the delica (minus the flipper tab) and just a hair wider. The detent as far as push button, you have to try to hardly press it to make it not flip. Light switch takes a medium pull. To shake the blade out is slightly harder than the Benchmade Bugout. I was expecting not to be able to shake it out but then again the only other <$50 knives i can compare it with i have are mentioned above. And the blade, it looks less recurve (or what ever you want to call the part by the flipper) in person than some pics. The shape makes the knife flow well but with my lansky system the last 1/8" will not get sharpened but doesn't I really matter to me (still more edge than the delica). The compression lock and flipper are fine together. They hardly overlap. If you like to use the front edge of the lock, you have to release by half way shut or if you don't deathgrip it it will just push you finger out of the way. Only thing is I wish it had a black clip but that's just me.
