Mantis Knives and G&G Hawk Create Vicious Circle

Vicious Circle is a portable, lightweight blade that is easy to use.

Mantis Knives and G&G Hawk have collaborated to bring you the MK-14 Vicious Circle, a portable knife you can hang around your neck. With 10 different finishes — including polished gold and stone washed — you’re bound to find the right Vicious Circle to match your style and needs. The curved blade is 1.5 inches and only weighs 1.55 ounces, which is perfect for on-the-go activities, emergencies, self-defense and more.

Having the Vicious Circle hang from a neck sling makes it easily accessible and with a tug, you’ve got the blade in your hand.

There are several different finishes for the Vicious Circle.
