Having gone through many changes and iterations since its introduction in the early 2000s, the Manix 2 is a more compact Manix 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 2 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 it very safe to operate, opening and closing without placing your fingers in the path of the blade. This Lightweight version comes with a satin finished, plain edge CPM-SPY27 blade and Bi-Directional textured Mineral Blue FRCP handles.
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, USA.
Blade: A iconic, broad leaf shaped blade is delivered in fully flat ground, satin finished CPM-SPY27 for a great balance of slicing geometry, piercing capability and durability with a razor sharp plain cutting edge. CPM-SPY27 is a proprietary, high Cobalt stainless steel with well-balanced properties for daily use. 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 stainless steel partial back spacer supports the Mineral Blue FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) handles, 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 Lightweight is secure and comfortable in the hand thanks to strategically placed jimping, a prominent index guard and forward choil along with the high-traction Bi-Directional Texturing. A generously large hole is provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up only, stainless steel wire 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-SPY27: Produced by Crucible exclusively for Spyderco (SPY), CPM SPY27 is a high Cobalt (atomic number 27) steel similar to S35VN. The resulting steel is expected to have similar hardness and corrosion resistance to S30V with toughness similar to S35VN with better sharpening response. An all around well-balanced steel for everyday use.
