SP101PBN2: C101PBN2 KnifeCenter Exclusive Manix 2 Lightweight
This limited edition version of the Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight was produced exclusively for KnifeCenter to offer one of Spyderco's most popular models in a unique and highly collectible format. Rather than the standard blade steel typically used on this model, our exclusive version features Carpenter Technology's CTS-XHP, a state-of-the-art powder metallurgy steel that combines the time-tested performance characteristics of D2 tool steel with a higher degree of corrosion resistance. The satin finished plain edge blade is full-flat ground for exceptional edge geometry and features an oversized Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous, one-handed opening.

The original Manix 2 Lightweight pioneered the use of ultra-lightweight FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) in its injection-molded handle—a feature that helped it win BLADE Show's coveted Most Innovative American Design award in 2010. This KnifeCenter exclusive version features a distinctive brown-colored FRCP handle with Spyderco's high-traction Bi-Directional Texturing pattern for a secure grip in even the most demanding conditions. The handle houses Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock—a high-strength lock mechanism that offers ambidextrous operation and an exceptionally smooth action. To ensure convenient carry and keep the knife poised for immediate access, it includes a reversible, low-profile wire clip that supports left- or right-side tip-up carry.

Proudly offering both an enhanced blade steel and a distinctive handle color, this one-of-a-kind exclusive version of the Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight maximizes the performance of this popular design and is destined to become a highly prized collector's item.

Manix 2 cts-xhp
As an every day carry, this knife feels big. It is the same length as my pm2 but the folded depth feels much larger. The handle flet like hard plastic. I much prefer frn to frcp. Cts-xhp is amazing. The knife came sharp and a few minutes on a strop and it is laser beam sharp.

Happy Customer!
I love this knife! It's very easy to carry because of it's shape and light weight. In fact, it's so easy to carry that I that I feel guilty if I don't carry it everywhere. I almost decided to carry it on a run yesterday! Even though there is a lot of plastic in this knife, nothing about it feels cheap! I would buy this knife again in a second, and I would, without a doubt, recommend this knife to anyone!

Good stuff.
Another excellent Spyderco. Weighs less than many knives half it's size. A bit chunky size-wise when folded and in the pocket. Doesn't bother me much, but I guess it depends on what else you might carry in your pockets. I love the texturing Spyderco puts on their plastics. But I do have a small grip with this particular model... the edges are pretty square. I wish the underside was more contoured like on the Delica/Endura models. Other than that, great! Pivot was a little tight and the lock a little rough in the beginning. I resisted the urge to adjust anything and she broke in quite nicely in a week or two.
