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.

The Manix 2 is really a great knife. It is solid, the blade length and shape are perfect for me, and the steel holds an edge well and strops nicely. I love the utilitarian look of it. I was initially hesitant because of comments about how large in pocket it was, but I donít find it to be the case for me. I have an easier time slipping my hand in my pocket behind my knife than others Iíve had since it is flat. The Spydie-flip is very handy and seems almost as fast as a spring assisted knife I think. If I lost it Iíd get another tomorrow (donít tell my wife...!)

Iíve had my manix 2 for over a year and it keeps stealing my pocket over my other knives, It may not look like a beauty queen but it feels like a work horse thatís ready for pretty much anything. Good tight lockup, good edge retention, great handle, feels locked in.
My only gripe is the stiffness of the lock release, itís a little tough if your fingers are wet or if you have had a hand or finger injury.
Definitely must have this one.

I have MANY spyderco knives but this is one of my favorites! It sits a little big in the pocket but if you don't mind that, everything about this knife is just about perfect. Ergos are 10/10, blade material is great, action is great, locks up like a bank vault. Grab one of these before Spyderco stops making them.

the manix 2 is a superb knife for a quick story about Sal Glesser i had drew a design in school and and thought this design is pretty good so i decided to send it to spyderco with a little letter and for some reason i mentioned it in theat note and a couple of days later Sal sent me a manix 2 and a handwritten letter. Ever since i got it, it has been a superb knife and no edge problems so hit me up with that t hawk jk.... but srysly

This knife has blown me way. I have carried this knife for a little over a year, and itís never let me down. It holds a great edge. I have even carried it to work ( Iím a FN in the U.S. Coast Guard )cutting rope, boxes, zip ties, and a lot more. Itís the only knife I own two of. Well, three if you count the xl version.
If only they designed it to have 4 way carry like the lockback version.

I have this model, s30v satin finish. I couldn't be happier and have started to collect the limited edition steels as a result.
The blade profile is beautiful and very strong.
The lock is very strong as well, however it's not the most easy to use. Especially one handed.
The steel is of good quality, holds a nice edge and isnt too hard to sharpen. It is slow to corrode but will show some spots if you edc it and never oil it. Every few weeks you should wipe it down with a food grade oil.
Overall it's a very sturdy knife. I've tried the lightweight models in frn, and its just not for me. The full liner model is definitely the way to go.
It's good and heafty, but that's what I prefer. Definitely not a weight snob.
If you've never had one before, definitely give it a try. You wont regret it

This is my absolute favorite spyderco. Iím a sucker for a decent sized knife with some weight to it and this is perfect. It fits great in the pocket. I wish it came standard with a deep carry pocket clip but that allows for customization. I would highly recommend this to any first time spyderco buyer as well. It holds an amazing edge and always gets the job done.

What can I say, this knife is superb. I use it as my EDC knife and I have never been disappointed with it's performance. Hair popping sharp right out of the box. Extremely comfortable in the hand. No hot spots. Deep pocket clip. So comfortable in your pocket, you wouldn't even know it was there. Fast deploy, perfectly centered and balanced. Spyderco does it again with this masterpiece.

It's tough, has flawless ergos, and the action is flawless. I really couldn't ask for more, especially because I have one in M4, CTS BD30P, 52100, and S30V
What a great cutting tool!

The Manix always seemed like a must have spyderco and I wasnít sure whether to go LW or g10. I prefer some weight in my knives so went G10 and honestly think it just feels perfect. Solid but light enough I donít notice itís In my pocket. Now the lock. The first one I got had some lock stick and was crazy stiff. It wasnít a pleasant experience. I changed it and the second one was smooth, still a little stiff but workable. And overall the knife (or my fingers) has really broken in after a couple of weeks. Itís the smoothest knife I own by miles, the blade drops shut and the S30v is beyond excellent for the average user. Iím scared to get another because Iím sure it wonít be as good as this one. I just think with some of Spydercoís own locks you can get perfection or a fingerís worst nightmare!

Iím a huge fan of knives and Spyderco knives are some of the best! I love my Dragonfly2, Endura4, Paramilitary2 and etc.
A lot of people consider the PM2 to be the best of the best! Itís good, really good! Although compared to the Manix 2 the PM2 doesnít quite go cut for cut! The Manix 2 is a little heavier with full steel liners and outstanding amounts of jimping! With a broad leaf shaped blade itís excellent for all edc tasks and even better if need be for self defense! S30V steel for the working man! My favorite Spyderco by far! Proudly American made! Pocket Perfection!

This knife is awesome! the ergos are some of the best you can get, the ffg grind on the blade allows it to just slip through whatever you're cutting, and the lock is really robust. If you could only carry one knife for the rest of your life this would definitely be one to consider. It may not be one of the prettiest knives ever made but that's Spyderco's thing. If your not a collecter and just want a quality knife that will never fail on you, pick this gem up.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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!

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!!!!!
