Spyderco Manix 2 Black Blade
The Manix 2 is enjoying a welcome reception since its release in early 2010. An all-black version was added 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.
Inside the G-10 handle scales are dual full steel liners increasing rigidity and strength. The liners are scalloped, extending slightly beyond the handle scales creating textured jimping around a large portion of the handle's perimeter. A black three-screw pocket clip is left/right hand friendly and positions the folder for tip-up carry.
The matte black non-reflective blade is Crucible CPM S30V steel, flat-ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) above a super-sized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. Blackening eliminates the blade's reflective qualities making the overall folder less noticeable.
