    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?

    Re: Please handle it safe/safely

    The first is incorrect. The second is not very natural, in my opinion. I'd say '... carefully/with care".
