This Manix 2 knife features a black FRCP handle with Spyderco's Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. It has a premium Carpenter CTS-BD1 steel blade with a full flat grind and plain edge. This state-of-the-art powdered metallurgy steel contains high amounts of vanadium and niobium—alloys that give it exceptional wear resistance and higher corrosion resistance than many other stainless steels.

Like its G-10 handled counterpart, the lightweight Manix2 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.

This is the best knife I've ever owned. It was evident from the first time I opened it and it locked that this knife would be my favorite. It locks open with authority, with the ball bearing quickly and firmly holding the blade open. It makes a very pleasing "steel-slapping-steel" sound when it snaps open. It's solid and instant. The blade steel is beyond excellent and laser sharp out of the box. There's too many great things about this knife to list in a single review, and not a single bad thing. ****

I edited this review to give another review after using the knife for several months.

It's still five stars. I've used it to cut heavy rope, countless pieces of wood, and rubber matting. I will admit that it won't cut paper like it used to, leaving little curlies, but it is still very sharp. It still cuts everyday items very well. Cleaning is no issue, even though I thought it would be due to the inability to take it apart (rivets). I use silicon based WD40, not the regular kind, and flush all the mechanics. It's still very smooth and operates like new.
No blade play whatsoever. I wouldn't baton with this knife, like you see in all the videos demonstrating its capabilities. I use my knife hard, but I'm not going to destroy it. Don't let the videos bashing it influence your decision to buy this knife. It's still my go-to knife, and you won't regret buying it.
