SP101PBL2: C101PBL2 Manix 2 Translucent Blue

The lightweight Manix 2 has arrived and is drawing praise and winning accolades, including Blade Magazine's 2010 Most Innovative American Design.

Like its G-10 handled counterpart, the lightweight Manix 2 features the Ball Bearing Lock. The lock operates around a free-floating ball bearing contained inside a custom polymer cage. The ball bearing's round shape allows the lock to self-adjust across a large surface ensuring smooth and consistent lock-up every time it is engaged. The Ball Bearing Lock is engineered to be self contained meaning there is no need for internal liners to support it, allowing the folder to be manufactured liner-free and extraordinarily light weight.

The translucent EdgeTek FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) handle is semi-opaque dusk blue with a series of jimped areas molded around the handle's perimeter. Additionally Bi-Directional Texturing covers both sides of the handle scale making the folder better for gripping in wet or uncertain conditions.

The blade is made from newly released BD-1 Carpenter steel. BD-1 is gaining the attention of knife enthusiasts for its high carbon and chromium content that is rust-resistant while offering enduring edge retention. The blade is flat-ground with spine and choil jimping and an oversized Spyderco Round Hole.

An ambidextrous, tip-up wire silhouette pocket clip and screw-together handle construction make the folder user friendly with several and carry options.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Pocket Clip, Weight, Overall Quality
Cons: None
Light Weight Folder
This is a daily carry knife. specifically in warmer weather when you are wearing lighter clothes and don't need bulky, or heavy. The light weight makes it perfect for shorts with draw strings, or elastic for camping, hiking and kayak fishing. It is a trade off. light weight does not lend to the solid feel that a heavier, full metal lined handle and a nice G-10 handle would, but then it would loose the qualities that I described above. Perfect knife for the active person and light and large enough to be efficient for backpacking, river camping, bike touring, kayak fishing etc. It is what I was after. The only reason I did not give it an excellent mark is that nothing is perfect, but it is well executed and well made.

Cons: None
All the goodness of regular Manix 2 in a light weight form factor ...
Torx pivot will allow for adjustment, if necessary, otherwise, rest of the knife is put together with pins and you will not be able to take it apart, unlike many Spyderco knives. Wired pocket clip is one of their best design, light weight with just the right amount of tension. Near premium CTS DB1 steel is excellent for edge retention and is easy to resharpen. FRN handle is ergonomic and fairly grippy. Jimping on the choil and thumb rest provide excellent handling characteristics. One of the best light weight EDC knives under $100.

Great worker
After owning this knife for some time I really like it more the longer I have it. The only thing that I could say that I don't like about it is it takes up a lot of pocket space. It doesn't see as much pocket time as it should because of this. It is however an amazing knife. I love the weight and the feel in hand. Very comfortable while using. The finger choil and jumping are great for control. CTS BD1 is a great steel, I was surprised how easy to get a polished edge on it and cuts like a dream. I would recommend this knife to anyone and would give 5 stars if it didn't take up so much pocket space. It's worth the money and I'm glad I bought it.
