This incredible expression of the best-selling Manix 2 combines all
the proven features of the standard version with a blade ground from
state-of-the-art CPM® S110V® powder metallurgy stainless steel. Boasting
an impressive 2.8% carbon and high amounts of vanadium and niobium, CPM
S110V is specially formulated for exceptional wear resistance and
enhanced corrosion resistance—key qualities in a high-performance blade
The leaf-shaped profile of the Manix 2’s blade provides a long,
gently curved cutting edge and a sturdy, utilitarian point. For maximum
control, it features a forefinger choil and a thumb ramp with strategic
jimping (textured grooves) that allow a forward-positioned grip during
detailed cutting tasks. The 14mm Trademark Round Hole™ proudly announces
the knife’s Spyderco pedigree and makes one-handed deployment with
either hand swift and positive.
Built on a framework of full skeletonized stainless steel liners, the
Manix 2’s handle is capped with textured dark blue G-10 scales that are
the signature color of Spyderco’s elite family of CPM S110V knives. To
ensure convenient carry and instant access, the handle includes a
reversible spring steel clip that mounts to either side of the handle
butt for ambidextrous tip-up carry. It also features an oversized lined
lanyard hole for easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.
Linking the blade and handle is Spyderco’s patented Ball Bearing Lock
mechanism. This high-strength lock consists of a ball bearing nested
within a durable textured polymer “cage.” When the blade is opened, a
compression spring drives the cage forward to wedge the ball bearing
between a ramp on the blade tang and the steel frame anchored between
the handle halves. Drawing the caged ball bearing to the rear releases
the lock and allows the blade to close smoothly while keeping your
fingers safely away from the sharp edge.
