Having gone through many changes and iterations since its introduction in the early 2000s, the Manix 2 is a more compact Maxix that is perfect for everyday carry while still offering full size knife performance. Spyderco’s Ball Bearing Lock mechanism is the heart of the Manix offering some of the strongest lock performance while being fully ambidextrous and very smooth to operate. Paired with the RoundHole opener, the Ball Bearing lock makes the Manix very safe to operate, opening and closing without placing your fingers in the path of the blade. This version comes with a black DLC coated, plain edge CPM-S30V blade with matching liners and black G10 handle scales.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, USA.
Blade: A iconic, broad leaf shaped blade is delivered in fully flat ground, black DLC coated CPM-S30V for a great balance of slicing geometry, piercing capability and durability with a razor sharp plain cutting edge. DLC or Diamond-Like Carbon, is a durable PVD coating that offers a non-reflective and corrosion resistant finish. A large, 14 mm RoundHole provides easy ambidextrous deployment on a smooth, phosphor bronze washer pivot with excellent action thanks to the Ball Bearing Lock detent. For optimal safety and control during use the jimped thumb ramp and index finger choil duo are unbeatable.
Handle: A DLC coated, stainless steel partial back spacer supports dual DLC coated stainless steel liners, both housing the rock solid Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. Pull back the polymer cage with either hand to disengage this smooth operator. Ergonomically designed with a pinky hook, subtle finger grooves and a nice palm swell, the Manix 2 is secure and comfortable in the hand thanks to strategically placed jimping and a prominent index guard and forward choil. Enhancing traction and comfort are peel-ply textured G10 composite handle scales which are durable and impervious to the elements. A generously large hollow tube is provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up only, stainless steel Hourglass clip.
Ball Bearing Lock: One of Spyderco’s strongest, smoothest operating lock mechanisms, the Ball Bearing Lock consists of a hardened steel ball bearing housed in a polymer cage. When the knife is opened a spring plunger drives the ball bearing forward onto a ramp on the blade, wedging it securely open. Pulling back on the cage releases the lock and allows the blade to pivot smoothly closed. Operating the knife is easily performed with either hand without placing your fingers near the blade’s edge.
CPM-S30V: A powdered stainless steel with high levels of edge retention and corrosion resistance S30V was developed specifically for use in knife blades. The powdered process gives it a very refined grain, improving the sharpness and toughness. S30V is a great, all around steel with high levels of performance.
