The Manix 2 is a dependable full-service knife that showcases Spydero's USA-made quality while utilizing its patented Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. Considered one the their toughest locking mechanisms, it consists of a hardened steel ball bearing encased in a polymer cage. After the blade has been opened, a quick simultaneous pull back on the oval-shaped ridged tabs releases the lock and allows the blade to pivot smoothly closed. Just like the Endura or Delica series, the tremendous popularity inspired a number of variations to highlight different aspects of the knife--from lighter handle scales to alternate blade finishes and styles and even touching upon multiple size ranges. This model, the C101PBBK2, features black lightweight textured FRCP (Fiberglass Reinforced Co-Polymer) handle scales with strategically placed jimping and a DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) black finished blade in a leaf shape style. This folder also comes standard with Spyderco's trademark round hole opening feature and the pocket clip is designed for tip up carry only but is eligible for left or right hand carry options. Made in the USA.

The manix is awesome. I debated which blade steel I wanted for days, but ended up with the BD1 based on price and intended usage. Figured the decreased wear resistance would result in a more chip resistant edge and don’t mind regular sharpening. Really happy with my choice. The full black looks fantastic and it came razor sharp and in perfect condition. Bladeops was great as usual and somehow got it to me in less than 48 hours with free shipping. Very happy and will continue buying from in the future.
