    Default Please handle it safe/safely

    1. Please handle it safe.

    2. Please handle it safely.


    Is the second one ungrammatical or just different in meaning from the first one?

    The first is incorrect. The second is not very natural, in my opinion. I'd say '... carefully/with care".
    Please do not edit your question after it has received a response. Such editing can make the response hard for others to understand.
