Description

Description

The recipe for success: Start with an exceptionally strong lock, manufactured using precise tolerances and add a blade honed from stainless steel. The conclusion is the Manix 2.

The C101 is an assembly of small seemingly inconsequential features that added together result in one of the strongest knives from Spyderco to date. Outstanding ergonomics are the result of the convenient slide lock, the relationship between the bladeís weight, and the handle's shape. These little things result in the smoothest possible opening/closing and reliable and comfortable cutting. A knife that fits perfectly in your hand!

Scales are a durable G10 and the steel is premium CPM-S30V with a full flat grind. A three-screw pocket clip adjusts for ambidextrously carry, tip-up or tip-down. Includes hole for lanyard use.

This is a solid knife (you definitely feel the 5oz heft) built with quality materials. Thereís plenty of jimping all around this knife and ergonomics feel really good. It has that beautiful leaf shape blade that so many Spydercos have. The ball bearing lock is interesting. At first glance it looks similar to an Axis lock but when you take the knife apart itís built very different. Itís another very popular knife and a must have for knife collectors.

Great knife comfortable in hand. Steel is awesome s30v my favorite by far. Lock is awesome very stiff out the box but will be better as I use it. Must have for your collection.

A very nice knife at a decent price. The locking mechanism is pretty interesting and very solid. Decent steel.
Overpriced and underperforming

I bought mine in 2015 when it was only 85 dollars. Now at the new price I can't imagine I'd ever buy this knife. If i could go back in time i still might not. First my biggest complaint is the steel. I wanted a super steel that never needed sharpening and back in my newbie times I was told cpm s30v was one of the best all around steel out there. So I saved up and spent more then double I have ever spent on a knife, hoping for atleast double the performance. Since this was one of spydercos cheaper s30v blades this is what I got. At 90 dollars I'd say it's marginally better then aus 8 or sanvik 12c27 and a little worse then d2. Rat 1 in d2, $40. Coldsteel aus8, $30. Mora stainless $10-20. ok so get the steel and price out of the question and it's a pretty good knife, but not as smooth as a "ball bearing lock" would have you believe. It's average smooth, still takes a little wrist, doesn't drop shut. It's just ok. Ergonomics are where this knife shines. Opens easy, closes easy, grip feels good, g10 has perfect texture/grip. Slides in and out of pocket good. All around a good knife, just overpriced and underperforming

I love the design, however the lock is too tight! I have had this knife approximately 2 years and the lock is still super stiff. If it came with a compression lock I would like it more.
Amazing ergos, but kinda sharp

The finger choil and thumb ramp and jimping on the back of the blade are amazing. It feels like it just melts in your hand it fits so comfortably. My one complaint though is all the bumps/jimping that is a part of the liners that are on the back of the handle, near the finger choil, and near the butt of the knife. Those are pretty sharp and really not comfortable in my opinion. The G10 backlock version does not have these so that may be something you'd be interested in if you think the sharp ergos would bother you as well.
Great working knife

Every bit as good as the light weight version for edc. Solid knife that can take hard use. Action is very smooth and lock up is solid. No blade play issues and centering is spot on. Extremely comfortable to use and carry. Worth every bit if the price. I own 5 different Manix versions, on of the best knives you'll own.
Buy it now!

Usually I carry almost any knife with a sub-3 inch blade just because Iím a small knife guy. Wanted to try out a bit ďbeefierĒ of a knife, and boy oh boy did I get what I purchased. Love the jumping around the spine of the knife and the g-10 feels great.
Excellent

Had this knife for about a year. Blade arrives very sharp as you would expect from spyderco. It's sturdy with very little blade play. Locking mech is strong and holds up. Pocket clip has no play to it. Handle provides a good grip. Opening is easy from either hand.
Great knife

Sydercoís never interested me until I saw the Manix 2.
I purchased the Manix 2 G10 several months ago and has been my favorite EDC. I like the blade shape and the heafty weight with the solid liners. The ball bearing lock is also a lot of fun. The blade is very sharp and the point is like a needle. Now I want to try the light weight versions.
Great edc

Got this knife about a year ago. I canít say enough about how much I like this knife! It is a beefier, heavy knife that you know can take camping and not worry about it, but also has a nice tip sharp enough to dig out a splinter if you need to. The ball bearing lock is pretty much an axis lock of Benchmade but is a bit stiffer. S30V steel sharpens really nice and keeps its edge for a good long while with just some stropping. Knife is kinda heavy for when wearing jogging shorts but perfect when wearing jeans. I would tell anyone to buy this knife.
Solid EDC Knife

I have the cruwear version of this knife, but everything ill say applies to the normal s30v model. ergonomically it is perfect, the ball bearing lock is one of the strongest blade hq has tested, s30v is a heck of a stout steel, and the g10 makes the knife comfortable, safe, strudy and overall gives more confidence when cutting. my manix 2 sees more pocket time than any other knife i own for what its worth.
A great EDC

What I love about this knife, and all Spyderco
Knives for that matter is that with little effort they can be made to operate by a lefty with out a problem. They come razor sharp out of the box.
And this one is no exception
Just get one.

This is a solid, excellently built knife. Canít go wrong here. Handle fits the hand perfectly, plenty of grip with all the jimping and G-10. One of my favorites!

I love this knife! Itís the perfect balance between an EDC blade and a tactical knife. Iím also left handed, so the lock mechanism is great for lefties like me. Itís heavier than most of my previous EDC blades, but Iím willing to make an exception for this knife. This knife makes my bench made look like a dollar store knife. This is my third spyderco, and is my favorite BY FAR! Also, thank you to Blade HQ for the fast shipping and great price!

First off, this was my first Blade HQ purchase. I included a note to please assure that my knife was properly centered and best of condition...... Three days later I received my Manix 2 along with a note ("I got you a good one! Enjoy it!") Well I have to say I was pleasantly surprised, and I want to thank Spyderco for a great Quality EDC Blade and Blade HQ and "Carson" (for the note) Great customer service and fast shipping mean alot! Love the Manix 2 and I'm very happy to add this blade to my rotation of knives!
Bad blade!!

Bladehq as done it again with another great knife. Manix2 g10 awesomeness at a great value. Blade came perfectly centered with no play up our down side to side. Great lock up and also very sharp nice blade shape and very happy that I chose the G-10 model over the light weight. Also bladehq delivered my knife on time as always. From now on I will stick with them to buy my knives because you don't have to worry if your getting a knock off. I purchased a pm2 from Amazon and it was real but it also came with issues had to grind down the lock to smooth it out. Thanks again Blade HQ!
Great EDC

This knife immediately became my EDC and has been for over a year with no plans of switching. With the S30V steel blade you can practically abuse this knife and it comes back asking for more. There is not a better value out there right now for a knife you plan to carry and truly use.
Top EDC blade!

This is my most carried knife and by far my favorite in my current line up. I also own the Manix 2 lightweight but something about the extra weight on this knife adds a whole new feel. Amazing in hand and great in pocket! It's definetly a medium size folder but I don't mind it at all. The S30V is super sharp and really durable. I've used this knife for a few months now and it's still razor sharp! Again thanks to Blade HQ for keeping great low prices and having a great on hand stock! Highly recommended!!!!!
