Its official, the lightweight Manix 2 is 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's function centers on a free-floating ball bearing contained inside a polymer cage. The spherical shape of the ball bearing enables the lock to self-adjust across a large surface resulting in smooth and consistent lock-up each time it's engaged. Engineered to function as a self-contained locking mechanism, it does not need internal handle liners to support or anchor it in the handle and manufacturing it without liners keeps it extraordinarily lightweight, only 2.85oz (81g). Its EdgeTek FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) black handle is textured with jimping molded around sections of the handle's parameter. Additional Bi-Directional Texturing covers both sides of the handle's scales affording secure grip in wet or challenging conditions. The blade is BD-1 steel by Carpenter Steel Corporation. BD-1 is gaining the notice of knife enthusiasts for its elevated carbon and chromium content and high-level rust-resistance and edge retention. The blade is ground flat with spine and choil jimping and an oversized Spyderco Round Hole. Ambidextrous, tip-up wire silhouette pocket clip.
