Description
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.

Update on my Maxamet Spyderco !!!
I just wanted to add that when you come to sharpen your knife you will find it very difficult to sharpen. I have a work sharp ken onion edition which is excellent at sharpening knives in fact it's awesome but the problem is when you get factory sharpened knives it's usually a v shape grind which is okay but it wears down fast (NOT SO WITH MAXAMET DUE TO ITS HARDNESS) and then you have to remove more steel to resharpen the blade where as the Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition gives a covexed edge which will last longer and stay sharper for longer and removes less steel and so is a far more efficient at cutting. Now because your new Spyderco Manix 2 in Maxamet steel is very, very hard your going to find it very difficult to resharpen so the best way to do this is with a leather strop on a Work Sharp Ken Onion Edition which you can buy here as I've just found out. You can buy all sorts of add on items for this machine it really is awasome and it will help keep your knives in hair splitting condition, it can even resharpen ceramic knives with dimond abrasive belts so Maxamet steel is easily resharpened to a scalpol cutting edge !!!.

WOW !!!!! HRC 68 to 69 !! A MUST BUY !!!
The knife is fantastic and it's edge retention is out of this world. I've used it on everything and it's still hair splitting sharp. The build quality is great but the plastic is really grippy with the spider web pattern but for me at least it's all about the soul of the knife it's Micro Melt Maxamet steel blade. It's got a weird looking grain on the steel for a sintered steel and where it's been sharpened it's edge looks like when you've ground and polished tunsten carbide. That nice metallic sheen but wow it's performance is the best I've had yet out of knife. I've got a few Falkniven knives with the super gold powder steel blades and I would thought they would never be beaten but this Maxamet just sailed on past it in a cutting performance test, no one knows the HRC hardness of this steel so I took it EMC metallurgy labs and it was tested there and it fell between 68 and 69 HRC on the blade cutting edge and 65 to 66 HRC on the spine. That's just ridiculously hard ha ha. Just to put it in perspective Sandrin Knives have just released the worlds first tungsten carbide knife with a HRC of 71 now that's quiet soft for tungsten carbide it can go a hole lot higher than that but for a STEEL to get in the height 60s well that's just pure effing magic. The folks at the labs said they could not believe there own eyes and had to test the HRC machine to see if it needed resetting but yes Maxamet is officially a super steel !
