SP101PGY2: C101PGY2 Manix 2 Lightweight
Spyderco
 
The soul of the C101PGY2 Manix 2 Lightweight is its flat-ground Carpenter CTS Maxamet tool steel. Its leaf-shaped profile flows seamlessly into the lines of the handle while providing both a forefinger choil and an understated thumb ramp. Both these areas feature strategic jimping (textured grooves) for a secure grip and support a forward grip for increased control during detailed cutting tasks. The blade's 14mm Trademark Round Hole makes one-handed deployment with either hand swift and positive.

The Manix 2 Lightweight's handle is injection molded from gray fiberglass reinforced copolymer (FRCP) and includes Spyderco's distinctive Bi-Directional Texturing pattern to ensure a secure grip in all environmental conditions. The lightweight FRCP handle reduced the overall weight of the knife to a mere 3 ounces--42 percent lighter than the G10 handled Manix 2. A reversible wire clip provides convenient left or right-side tip-up carry and an oversized lanyard hole allows the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.

Linking the blade and handle is Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. This high-strength lock consists of a ball bearing nested within a durable textured polymer "cage." When the blade is deployed, a spring-loaded steel plunger drives the ball bearing forward to wedge between a ramp on the blade and an "anvil" in the handle's steel insert. Drawing the caged ball bearing to the rear releases the lock and allows the blade to close smoothly while keeping your fingers safely away from the sharp edge. Smooth, strong and easily operated, like the rest of the knife's features, the Ball Bearing Lock is also completely ambidextrous.

Carpenter CTS steel's Maxamet is a super-hard high-speed powdered tool steel possessing properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels approach those of cemented carbides, the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. When Carpenter developed this amazing alloy, they sent samples to various companies in the knife industry to evaluate as a blade material. Although many tried, Spyderco was one of only a handful of companies to successfully develop the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat and grind this demanding material to yield reliable, high-performance knife blades.

Maxamet's remarkable alloy composition includes: Carbon: 2.15%, Manganese: 0.30%, Sulfur: 0.070%, Silicon: 0.25%, Chromium: 4.75%, Cobalt: 10.00%, Vanadium: 6.00%, and Tungsten: 13.00%. This sophisticated mix of elements, combined with the advantages of powdered metal technology, give it an extraordinary balance of wear resistance and toughness at high hardness levels.

just got it and its love at first sight
I received this knife a few days ago and compared it to other folders that I own. Buck, Benchmade, The blade is extremely sharp. I'm anxious to see how long it stays that way with limited use. I like the shape of the blade and the handle. I was surprised to find I needed to oil the blade to prevent rusting,, but that's my ignorance of various steels. My disappointment of the knife is the opening and closing of the blade. My Buck, which is not my favorite works a lot easier, but the best is the benchmade. When I press the button on the benchmade the blade is loose and I can either flip it open or closed without touching the blade. The Spyderco is not loose to open though smooth and a little complicated to close because the hinge is stiff. I oiled it and that helped a little but not much.

Whoa
Have S110 Manix and this..After dropping and polishing the edge.yes its work..oh well..fun work.. in working wood the Maxamet is a whole diff ball game. It feels much tougher and doesn't chip. No fear there..Shaving wood feels like doing wax much longer..The edge polished out smoother than s110 and leaves gorgeous more shiny wood. I like its patina..keeps it non reflective. After a month I stopped using S110 to carve..just wasn't close. Ive chipped s110 a few times..Sorry to say, same w m390 but no chips...and m4...unreal steels...but...maxamet... wooohoo.

My favorite EDC
The Manix 2 Lightweight has become my favorite EDC in the past 5 years due to the incredible lightweight build while still being plenty strong for everyday use and feeling like it is a high quality piece. The ergos are perfect for my above average sized hands. The blade size and profile is my absolute favorite. The action is positive and sturdy. Deep carry clip is perfect. Traction on the handle and the blade back is 10/10.The reason this version of the M2 LW is my favorite is the steel, I've got the blue CTS-BD1, brown CTS-XHP versions and both are great, but the Maxamet is my favorite. Incredibly long wearing while still taking an edge without too much fuss. Love the stonewashed finish. It came finished with an incredible edge out of the box, as do all the Spydie's I've purchased to date.
