SP101PBBK2: C101PBBK2 Manix 2 Lightweight Black


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 EdgeTek FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) handle is black 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 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.

Wanted a jogging knife
So I wanted a light folder to carry while jogging (I wanted to start jogging and thought carrying a knife may help). It took some getting used to only because I owned a Manix 2 XL (hands down favourite folding knife ever) and the light version of the standard sized Manix 2 seemed cheap, mainly due to its weight, however I wanted something lighter to start jogging with,so this was a natural choice.I now carry regularly for work (I really don't need a knife at work) and feel very happy with its ability to disappear in my pocket (I wear slacks/trousers). I'm still trying to go jogging, and have ventured out with Real Steel 127, which is the best neck-knife on earth.The Manix 2 is interchangable with the RS 127, however is a lot more expensive but has more blade length. What I choose depends on what task is at hand, as always.Ultimately, glad I own one and would not sell it, but could happily live without - using the fixed balded RS 127 instead.

Disregard "anonymous" review!
Let me start off with the review from Anonymous, is completely the opposite of what I've got with this knife. He must have received a rare dud. This is my first Spyderco knife and I am extremely impressed thus far. This knife arrived hair shaving sharp...literally. I've been using it for a week now cutting cardboard/tape. Got bored at work and cut some rope and plastic ties. Still slices paper with no sharpening/honing. This BD1 steel is holding up much better than expected. Extremely lightweight, almost felt cheap at first but I've grown to love the texture. After 2 days, a couple drops of Kroil on each side of the lock bushing, this knife easily deploys with the thumb hole or with the slightest flick of the wrist, I can comfortably use my middle finger. Closes with one hand no problem. I currently have 5 folders, this is easily my new #1.

Cons: Blade Sharpness, Blade Material
I don't know why I wasn't honest and state this prior, but, this is a follow up: the blade steel was as dull as a butter knife. It could not have been worse. I haven't really tested it but from my experience of comparing steel types, this blade steel is trash. There are much better steels to get than this.
