The Manix 2 has enjoyed a welcome reception since its release in early 2010. An all-black version arrived summer of 2010 with a DLC (diamond like coated) black blade, black screws and black silhouette pocket clip. Just like the non-black version it features an exceptionally strong lock called the Ball Bearing Lock. The lock consists of a free-floating ball bearing contained in a custom high-tech polymer cage. The round ball bearing allows the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking up with solid confidence. Layered under the G-10 handle are scalloped full-steel scale liners extending just beyond the handle scales, effectively jimping the handle’s perimeter while increasing rigidity and strength. The matte black non-reflective blade is Crucible 154-CM steel, hollow-ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) above a super-sized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. A black three-screw pocket clip is left/right hand friendly and positions the folder for tip-up carry. Clip Position: Ambi.
Manix 2 G-10 Black Blade A reversible hourglass pocket clip supports left or right-side tip-up carry, complementing the blade’s
Trademark Round Hole and lock mechanism to make every aspect of the knife’s carry, deployment, and operation completely ambidextrous.Its handle is constructed with full stainless steel liners
a stainless steel back spacer, and textured black G-10 scales. It houses the knife’s high-strength Ball Bearing Lock mechanism, which consists of a hardened steel ball bearing encased in a polymer cage.
Like the blade, all metal components of the handle feature a durable, non-reflective black coating that makes the Manix 2 Black Blade ideal for use in tactical environments where light discipline is critical.
Pulling back on the cage releases the lock and allows the blade to pivot smoothly closed. Both opening and closing are easily performed with either hand and without ever placing your fingers near the blade’s edge.
When the knife is opened, a spring plunger drives the ball bearing forward onto a ramp on the blade, wedging it securely open.
