I have a Manix 2 and the lightweight version here. These are good strong heavy duty blades. I love the bigger knife without the weight. This thing feels just as light as my Delica. Under $150?? No brainer. Buy it!!! Canít wait to get my hands on the new axe!
This knife is so light!

This knife packs an amazing fine cutting edge! The grip on it is amazing too, feels like it'll never slip out of my grip when its wet or dry! The manix 2 lightweight is so light that it feels like its only lint in your pocket.

I bought this knife to use at my job as a handyman for a property management company 2 years ago, and it has been a near constant companion ever since. It only leaves my pocket when I want to carry something else for varieties sake or I am going into Boston where the blade is too large (I usually carry a Spyderco Cat then). Like most Spyderco knives it is an ergonomic masterpiece, the only slight hot spot I had was off the clip, and if you can swap it out for the deep carry wire clip, that all but disappears. The only other issue I have with this version of the Manix 2 is the inability to disassemble it, hence the 4 stars. The trade-off for this inability is that it is also thee lightest version of the Manix 2, making it easy to forget you are carrying a knife this large. The BD1 is perfect for a working knife, with a good balance of edge retention and sharpenability, being able to be brought back to sharpness in field conditions. The blade is the standard Spyderco leaf shape, and I have never found myself needing more blade from my pocket knife in the 2 years I have been using it. I 100% recommend it, and if it wasn't for the fact that you cant take it apart to maintain it, I would have given it 5 stars.
Awesome blade!!!

This is an excellent knife. It has great ergos with nice finger choils. The blade shape is very useful for all sorts of tasks and the steel can take a very keen edge. I love the wire clip (would be better if deep carry). The only other thing that could make this knife better is if you could take is apart.
Great EDC knife

I love this knife. Great lock up. 2nd kind of cool translucent blue handles. The steel is easy to sharpen. The best part is the 3 ounces! Not as light as my other EDC knife, but excellent. The edge doesnít come mirror polished, so I fixed that. The blade steel is easy to sharpen and holds a great edge.

This knife was my first Spyderco knife and I lost it at a buddy's wedding event. I then had to buy it again. Nothing compares to the utility of this knife, especially food prep. It rinses out so easily and is super rust resistant.
Great Spyderco knife!

This knife is awesome. Canít enough good things about the handle. It looks really awesome when held up to the light. The is really lightweight which makes it great for pairing with shorts. The BD1 steel holds a decent edge and can get a razor sharp edge. The FFG design of the blade is a great slicer. On a side note after buying his knife give Spyderco a call and get the deep carry clip from them for this knife. Itís only around $8 and trust me youíll love the knife even more
Great for an ultra light alternative to the G10 variant

Big fan of the PM2 and the Manix 2, so I bought this to try out the BD1 steel and the deep blue scales.

Good knife. BD1 seems comparable to VG10 in edge retention, and the plastic handle can seem a bit flimsy at times. It'd be a good backpacking folding knife.

Unless you're intentionally going after a lightweight, full size knife... Go with the standard Manix 2.

Have had this knife in my pocket 75% of the time for 7 years...only rotate to make all my others feel less jealous! Weight, ergos, reliability, ease of resharpening are all spot on! Haven't had a problem with the BD1 after years or regular edc plus hunting and backpacking...

Got this well over a year ago. Out of my relatively small but respectable collection this knife gets the most pocket time out of all. The ergonomics are second to none, the knife feels like it was meant for my hand. The jimping and texture on the gorgeous blue FRN allows for a very positive purchase. The leaf shape CTS BD1 blade is thin behind the edge and sharp enough to shave with. It's an absolute slicing machine. The wire clip is beautifully minimalistic, slick, while still strong enough to keep the knife in your pocket. Although the clip is admittedly weaker compared to many others, and de-forms when something snags it. The fit an finish is superb. All metal edges are smoothed out and the spydiehole doesn't dig into your finger. The ball bearing lock is sturdy and very safe. I love the lock on this knife. It isn't axis-lock smooth, but I don't really think it's meant to be. Once dialed in, the knife is butter smooth and ready for work. And when you want it away, it rides so nicely in the pocket you forget it's there. If you've been thinking about buying this knife, just do it. It's an absolute EDC monster, I highly recommend it to any friend who shows interest in it.

I have been carrying the manix 2 lightweight for a little over a year now. It is a great blade,super light and it is big. I found it great for backpacking tasks such as food prep. The low weight makes it ideal for long hikes and overnights. The only downsides are the pocket clip and the large footprint in my pocket. I do like the wire clip but wish it would have a deep carry option. When the blade is closed it is wide. It takes up much more pocket space than my PM2 even though the manix 2 is a smaller lenth blade. Still it is an overall winner.

This is an EXTREMELY LIGHT knife -- perfect for EDC!! The ergos are great, as is the blade shape. Super Sharp out of the box and the handle just looks cool in the sunlight. BD1 isn't a super steel but its a solid steel. The ball bearing lock is great for fidgety people like myself..... Buy one and you'll be glad you did!

This knife is a good choice for people who want the full sized handle feel but in a lightweight package. It'll cut adequately and need sharpening frequently depending on what you used it for. The lock is easy to use and is strong enough to do basic cutting chores, anything other than whittling some small pieces of wood might be taking it too far. I would recommend it for edc, not so much tactical if you're thinking so. There is a semi guard before the forward choil but for this I would stick with cutting boxes and apples. Clip is simple and holds in the pocket well. Would recommend this model as well as the ones with higher end steel.
Great EDC choice!

Beautiful, very light weight, superior ergonomics are just a few of the positive attributes for this knife. It's the sharpest new knife out of the box I've ever purchased, including much more expensive ones. The BD1 steel isn't premium, but is perfectly suitable for a sub $100 knife. Easy to sharpen and a great slicer! Super light with the wire clip make it an ideal EDC.
Great knife, ok steel.

The Manix is an amazing design. This lightweight version is just that, plus the translucent blue handles look great in the sun. This knife has not steel liners and needs none, it is plenty strong. The wire clip is simple yet perfect. I'm not the biggest fan of BD1 steel is why only 4 stars instead of 5.
You will forget this knife is in your pocket. If you want more heft, for for the regular Manix 2.
Awesome knife

Love how lightweight this knife is yet still very strong. The ergos are perfect and Sonia the lock but it misses on the steel for me. Really prefer something like s30v so I will probably trade for an s110v version in the future. Almost perfect knife if you want easier sharpening

This is a great knife I have had it for over 3 years and it stays in my pocket longer then any other knife I have in my rotation. The BD1 steel is good, holds an edge and is very slick. The lock up is good and I have put the knife under hard use and it never felt like the lock was going to ever fail. The wire clip works and looks good, but is started to loosen up after 3 years use. Knife weighs close to nothing. If you are on the fence about this knife just buy it you will not be disappointed.

This is absolutely my favorite knife to carry backpacking. You get a whole lotta of knife for under 3oz. I have never felt like I needed liners on it either. It does not flex like the videos I have seen of the Benchmade Bugout. The ball detent is stiff but perfect. The translucent blue is my favorite lightweight handle color. I feel much better sleeping at night knowing this is hanging on my hammock ridge line!

The only two critiques I have are with CDS-BD1 and the lock. I don't feel this steel holds an edge quite as well as some of Spyderco's other favorite steels. The lock is smoother than an axis lock due to the ball bearing, but the spring is much stiffer.
Love this EDC

The s110v steel is crazy sharp. The edge retention is amazing. I use this to cut open boxes, shave off wood chunks, and slice rope every day. I would definitely buy this again.

The Dusk Blue finish on this knife is absolutely beautiful, pictures don't do it justice. The BD1 steel is razor sharp out of the box, and for the size of this knife it feels as light as a feather. Perfect for when you want to carry a larger knife and not know its in your pocket. Highly recommend.

One of my favorite EDC knives. Super light perfect for gym shorts at home etc. but can still handle the grind of everyday tasks. Steel could be better it frays a bit on paper. Super cool & addicting ball bearing lock & release. Donít plan on taking it apart has pin construction but u donít have too. I think itís a must hv for price weight & comfort & translucent blue scales A+.

I like this knife, but I don't carry it often. I just can't get used to the locking system (Just my opinion). The Axis lock is far superior. But don't let that sway you, there is a lot of good here. The knife is an ergonomic master. This guy is built to cut and cut all day long. Though you might want to get an upgrade in steel for that. BD1 is decent but you might as well pay a little extra and get S30v or S110V. The wire clip makes it an amazing disappear in the pocket kind of knife. The translucent blue also makes this attractive. Aside from me not liking the lock, I really wish this wasn't pined construction. I love to take my knives apart and give them a good cleaning. At some point, I do plan on getting a better version of the Manix. However, if your budget extends below $100, this isn't a bad option.
Decent blade

The knife is great, but the steel is lacking. Iíd spend and extra $10-$20 for the S30V version if you can. Itís also tricky to have a smooth action with no blade play.

Spyderco has a winner in the light weight Manix. An ergonomic wonder, no matter how you grip this it's comfortable. I find it carries very well also. Smooth action with great lock up. This knife has no liners and you would never know it during use. Capable of much harder use than you think. No regrets in this one.

This is the first Spyderco I have purchased, and I really like it. It cuts through everything easily, and is super light for the size. It opens and closes very smoothly as I really like the ball bearing lock it works well. I donít carry it all the time because I am a girl and it doesnít fit in our tiny pockets well but I like it for when a bigger knife make more sense to use. Also the translucent blue is amazing.

I got this knife based off a review by Nuttnfancy.. I specifically sought out the translucent color for colectability. I really like the blade and handle as well, its a little bigger than expected so its not an edc for me but fits really well in my hand regardless.

I used to have a Kershaw Leek, but the top broke off of that so I needed a replacement. I had been looking at this one for quite some time, so I decided to go ahead and by it. When it arrived in the mail, I was blown away by how smooth the action was and how sharp it was. Of the 10 or so pocket knives I own, this is by far my favorite. If you by this, you won't regret the purchase one bit.
Love this knife!!

It is very light weight for it's size but feels sturdy and the blade steel seems good. Haven't used it enough to give a review on the blade steel. Blade is centered nice and has a nice lock up with no blade play. I love the color and shape of the handle, feels good in hand.

I chose this for the blade steel. I haven't had this type and I wanted to see if it was as good as I had heard. It is! Mine had some irregularities in the grind but my KME put it in super shape. It is beautiful to look at, yes I do like my knives, and it took no time to get used to the lock mechanism. I have bought several knives from Blade HQ and am totally satisfied with the shipping and their customer service always replies to my e-mail. They are even honest with their opinions when asked..... and I did. I just had to buy the PM2 in camo with the black blade in S30V.
American made. World class.

This is my second Manix2 and is the lighter of the two. I love the color and uniquely inconspicuous pocket clip. The ergonomics and Spydey hole are spot on for consistent easy-opening. The lockup is terrific and there is no blade-play. This is a large Delica on steroids with an axis lock instead of a spine lock - and US made unlike the Delica or Endura.

The axis lock on this lightweight Manix2 is a bit tough to close the blade with one hand since the axis lock is firm, and the blade doesn't fall free when released, like with my other heavier Manix2.

If you like lightweight American tactical EDCs, this will be sure to please.

Thank you.
The Manix 2 delivers!

This knife arrived promptly from BHQ. The blade was razor sharp out of the box. It cut 550 para cord easily. I much prefer the Manix 2 handle material to the FRN that comes on most Spyderco knives. It looks great and provides excellent traction. The ball bearing lock is like a vault. It is actually hard to unlock the knife but hopefully it will loosen a bit with use. I would not worry about this knife closing on you. Another great knife from Spyderco.
Awesome EDC blade!

Been carrying this knife for a little over a week now and I love it! The bd1 steel holds a great edge and I haven't needed any touch up after some good testing. Super lightweight is also a plus! Very durable! Love the ball bearing lock! Would highly recommend this knife! Buy it here for the best pricing!
