This Manix 2 utilizes an ultra high-performance Maxamet steel blade and gray lightweight handle. The result: another must-have Spyderco to add to your rotation.

Carpenter® steel's Micro-Melt® Maxamet® alloy 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.

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

Solid EDC rotator
Jesus R.
Added this knife into my EDC collection. Maxamet is a solid steal that holds a descent edge. Love the lock.
The 'Noriker' Manix 2
Refugio S.
This Manix 2 lightweight performs like a heavier breed work horse!. I've been able to put it through a lot of tough work and this steel in particular just keeps cutting like a champ!

I'm letting it patina on its own and the blade color pattern is really coming through nicely!
It won't let you down

This was my first Manix and im in love. I carried a tenacious as a teen for two years, decided to enlist and treated myself to a PM2 which was great. Carried that 1.5 years until I snapped the tip off on my current deployment. My sharpmaker wasn't fixing it so I ordered this and am so happy. It's not as smooth as a PM2 to deploy but thousands of flicks and a little blue-lube and it SNAPS open every time. The ball-bearing lock system was new to me also, I assumed it would be similar to the Axis locks on my Benchmades but it's not at all. I was a little put off at first due to it being so damn stiff compared to my other more fidgety knives that I flick around probably too much (940, Grip, PM2, and ZT flippers). I've carried it daily for 3 months in the desert, it vanishes in my pocket due to it's light weight, wire clip is great, sharp as hell, and feels sturdier than a Cold Steel XD. I'm still learning about steels but this knife holds a damn edge like nothing I've ever owned. Two guys here loved mine so much they got themselves a Manix as well. SO happy
The Great One

When I first saw this knife, I really want to have this and I didn't regret. This knife is truly great in anything I put this to test wherever I go. It retains its sharpness for a long time and very light to carry. It feels great in my hands and I believe that the only knife lover will regret is when he don't own this kind of knife of this kind of steel. Come buy this!!!
Another Great Manix 2
George S.
This Manix 2 is incredible because it's very light and yet extremely tough. Maxamet will take an edge as sharp as imaginable and hold it for far longer than most other steels. It's a great knife for just about anything a knife should do.
Elliott H.
One of the best fitting knives with THE highest wear resistance steel available.
Super lightweight, great pocket clip, strong lock, full flat grind. What more do you need?
I personally believe this is the best daily box cutting knife available.
Lovely Knife

This was an Xmas present to myself this year. It's my first Spyderco and my first knife with a premium steel (not counting kitchen knives). No regrets regarding the (for me) spendy price. So far only used on cardboard and plastic packaging. It's overkill for those purposes, but still a pleasure to use. I've never spent much on pocket knives before, no need to, since I typically only open packages and tear down down cardboard boxes. It's a real eye opener to actually have and use a high quality knife like the Manix 2 XL.
I'm really glad I treated myself.
Manix 2 at its finest
Tyler M.
This knife's fit and finish is superb. The blade is perfectly centered, has no blade play when opened, the clip is still one of Spydercos best additions to the folding knife community and the cutting edge is sharper than a razor! I cannot say enough about this knife other than if you buy this it WILL become a mainstay in your regular EDC rotation or if its your first knife it's an amazing first EDC blade because of the weight and size! 11/10
Perfect so far
Jeff J.
By far my favorite Spyderco knife. First I want to point out this is not a sprint run knife as the normally straight up Blade HQ stated in an email ad I received today. Back to the knife: The sub 3 oz weight is an amazing achievement for a knife this size. Normally that would mean an FRN linerless handle which may mean flex problems. I avoid those. The FRCP used on this knife is rigid - no flex at all. They should have used FRCP on the Native 5 Maxamet. Had they done so I would have bought one. The blade is very sharp. Time will tell if that holds out but that's all part of the fun in trying a new steel.
