This Manix 2 knife features a black Edgetek FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) handle with Spyderco's Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. Carpenter Steel CTS-BD1 steel blade with a flat grind and plain edge. Ambidextrous carry wire clip.
Very happy with this knife!
This knife is amazing. Yes it is slightly big for an office setting, however the ergos are amazing. I find myself choking up on this guy for most of my cutting tasks. I wear XL gloves for a size comparison. Using this same knife now for 16 months, I have put it through anything that I need it to. I have used the knife for food prep, cutting boxes, and about anything else you would do on a daily basis. I do not use the tool as a pry bar. The BD1 steel choice is pretty decent as an everyday blade choice. I have not seen any rust or discoloring on the blade yet. Cutting citrus fruit has not been an issue. The Manix 2 LW is my first Spyderco and has caused me to look at other models for a slightly smaller package. The Manix 2 LW and Victorinox Cadet are on my person every single day for the time being...
I really really really reaaaally love this knife. I have like 20 spyderco knives almost all of them are manix. From the LW version to the XL but i find myself edc-ing this model more often than all the rest... its amazing, weights close tonothing holds an edge pretty well wire clip... my favorite
I decided to buy this knife over other spyderco models. I do a lot of hiking, camping, and running around town and this knife is a jack of all trades. The ball bearing lock has a stronger spring than a benchmade axis lock but with some practice I've come to really enjoy it. Loving the pocket clip! Spyderco makes sturdy hardworking products and the Manix 2 rocks. Probably the sharpest knife I own. No problems with the BD1 steel. It's a larger knife so I mostly carry it on weekends.
I love the knife! It was always super sharp and comfortable just the plastic they use on the lightweight knives feel a little flimsy and the clip bends way to easy if caught on anything because it's a wire pocket clip but I love everything else about it
