Spyderco Manix 2
Spyderco Manix 2 Folding Powerhouse of a Pocketknife
Spyderco has really outdone themselves on this knife. The Manix2 is a powerhouse of a folder. It is medium sized – well that’s relative and most will find this a full size knife with a just under 3.5″ blade. The handle is G10 which is fully lined with polished stainless steel. The jimping (texturing) on the top and under part of the handle is “deluxe.” The pocket clip is also highly polished. The best part is really the overall “bulldog” sort of feel you get with this product. It is beefy and solidly built. On top of that they are fully made by Spyderco knives in the USA. Then, on top of that, they are priced at $82.95- at least for the introduction. You can see them at www.knifecenter.com
Here is the whole story from Spyderco:
A recipe for folding knife success: Start with hard-use rated lock. Add a blade made of exotic high carbon steel. Manufacture it in Golden, Colorado using precise tolerances then add a healthy dash of American innovation. These ingredients are the Manix2, a concoction of solo features when combined make one of the strongest knives from Spyderco to date. Patented by Spyderco, the Manix2 has a Ball Bearing Lock. It’s a hardened free-floating ball bearing contained in a custom hi-tech polymer cage. The round ball bearing allows the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking-up with solid confidence. Evolving over time, the Ball Bearing Lock’s strength withstands hard work with a secure, versatile and comfortable grip. Ergonomics are peerless in this design. The blade is 154CM and hollow-ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) above a super sized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. The Jimping doesn’t stop there. With full steel liners the scales have jimping that extends beyond the G-10 handle scales scalloping areas of the handle’s perimeter. This one is not slipping out of your hand and works well with gloves on! The liners pull double purpose by adding rigidly and lightweight strength to the handle. A three-screw clip is left/right-hand carry, positioned for comfort and deep pocket carry. The knife also has a large lanyard pipe to protect various types of cords or thongs.
