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 limited edition Sprint Run comes with a plain edge, black DLC coated, CPM-S90V blade and Burled 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-S90V for a great balance of slicing geometry, piercing capability and durability with a razor sharp cutting edge. CPM-S90V is a high performance blade material that offers superb edge retention and corrosion resistance while the durable, Diamond-Like Carbon or DLC coating is non-reflective and enhances resistance to corrosion. 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 dual 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. Burled G10 scales are unique from piece to piece and very visually appealing with colors ranging from light tan to black. The handle scales are durable and impervious to the elements and have a fine, velvety texture in the grip. 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-S90V: A unique tool steel made using the Crucible Particle Metallurgy process, CPM S90V offers substantial improvements in edge retention over 440C and D2, and other high chromium steels, with corrosion resistance equal to or better than 440C. S90V is an excellent choice where wear and corrosion resistance are key.
