The lightweight Manix 2 has arrived and is drawing praise and winning accolades, including Blade Magazine's 2010 Most Innovative American Design.
Like its G-10 handled counterpart, the lightweight Manix 2 features the 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.
The translucent EdgeTek FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) handle is semi-opaque dusk blue with a series of jimped areas molded around the handle's perimeter. Additionally Bi-Directional Texturing covers both sides of the handle scale making the folder better for gripping in wet or uncertain conditions.
The blade is made from newly released BD-1 Carpenter steel. BD-1 is gaining the attention of knife enthusiasts for its high carbon and chromium content that is rust-resistant while offering enduring edge retention. The blade is flat-ground with spine and choil jimping and an oversized Spyderco Round Hole.
An ambidextrous, tip-up wire silhouette pocket clip and screw-together handle construction make the folder user friendly with several and carry options.

The term “Lifetime” refers to the lifetime of the product. This doesn’t mean your lifetime or ours, but rather the lifetime of the components and materials. All materials degrade over time with use and exposure to the elements and a product’s lifetime is a function of how much use it gets and how well it is cared for and not by how it is.
