Spyderco’s Manix 2, C101PBBK2, definitely lifted the standard on EDC’s. The black CTS-BD1 steel blade has great edge retention. The black FRCP handle is durable and contoured for comfort. The pocket clip is reversible, but only offers Tip-Up for the blade. The lock is a ball bearing which makes closing easy and smooth. The award-winning Manix 2 Lightweight Black Blade redefined the standard in ultra-lightweight full-service folding knives. It features a 3.37-inch blade and a high strength Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. The Full Flat Ground CTS-BD1 blade is coated with non-reflective black Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC). The lightweight black fiberglass-reinforced co-polymer handle offers a wire pocket clip that is reversible for left or right tip-up carry.
