Haha, I'd feel like "honey I shrunk the kids" if I were trying to operate and use the Tatanka... just a bit cartoonish to me.

Digging that SuperHawk. :)



Anyone out there happen to have some complete comparison photos of a Stretch and an ATR together? I've never owned nor used an ATR.

:D Yes, the smaller Lynch clip looks like it really doesn´t belong there.. but it works just fine. I installed the longer Lynch clip first, but it didn't feel so good. I didn't like original clip since the knife was too exposed, but this way, Tatanka hides in my pocket really nice. Althoug, one does need deep pockets.. I'm planning to make a leather sheath for it when I have some spare time. I'm not fond of Tip Down carry, but this, and the Ulize are just too big to carry, or actually pull out of the pocket fluidly when Tip Up, maybe if I had bigger hands it would work.

And yes, it's a beast. But my beast, and I love it :D Camp chores are a breeze with this one. I mainly carry it on outdoorsy-type activities. The weight and the lenght/reach makes it somewhat usable for bowie-type moves too, but not backcutting.

I don't own a Stretch, so I can't post comparison shots with the A.T.R. :(

I'm impressed that you own pants that have pockets that deep than. I have Levis that have pockets that won't completely hide my Note 4 let alone a knife that big lol.

Dan you're my hero! Those are great shots, exactly what I needed. I didn't realize it was that much smaller than the Southard, so that's good to know. it looks like it's a lot easier on the pocket though. Should make for a great EDC.

Great comparison there with a lot of similarities. :)


I've been seeing a lot of people express their surprised amazement at the smaller size of the Mantras. They really aren't much larger than a Delica.

David, I'm glad the pictures were helpful. It rides small in the pocket, I don't think it will kick out my Southard but I could see it as a great alternative if I was wearing suit pants (god forbid!) :eek:

Yes, note how they get progressively smaller front to rear ;)
