SP101PBL2: C101PBL2 Manix2 Translucent Blue

The lightweight Manix2 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 Manix2 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.

Cons: None
Waited a few months before I...
Wrote this review, so that I would have a chance to really get a solid opinion, not just a "first impression".... This knife will easily fulfil & exceed expectations! Glad I waited to write...cause the "review" I WOULD have written, 5 minutes after opening the box?...would have been negative...and WRONG!

Cons: None
I bought this knife for personal everyday use,and protection if ever needed. I needed a knife that was lightweight, but could still have a large enough blade to make a difference. I looked for days(internet), found this one. I love it, very lightweight, cannot even tell it is in my pocket, nice size blade, came very sharp and the overall feel in my hand is perfect. I would buy this knife again.

Flyweight heavy hitter
This was my first knife in BD-1, so I was very eager to put it through its paces. After doing the usual multi-materials test, I felt this reminds me a bit of Gin-1. I've gotten it to take a clean razor edge fairly easily (easier than Gin-1 IMHO), and I also noticed how quickly it takes a mirror polish! This steel seems overall pretty easy to work with, and capable of getting pretty sharp, but (naturally) it does not hold an edge as long as some of the other recent steels (e.g. ZDP-189, S30V, etc). For someone who enjoys adjusting and sharpening regularly, though, it is a lot of fun. All around, I'm pretty pleased. The bearing lock is great, rock solid, and practically foolproof. Because it doesn't need a steel liner, this knife is very, very light, but doesn't seem at all fragile. The ergonomics are pretty good, and the handle fits my (rather large) hands surprisingly well. As usual, the flat grind and leaf shape make for a great and versatile combination. And did I mention, it's just so light! Almost unnervingly light at first touch, but with use it feels a lot stronger.
