    It's like Manix mania all of a sudden. The fuse was lit with the XL S90V (really like mine) and now the bombdiggity is the LW S110V.
    I bet some other knife makers are pulling their hair out over...

    I have been fortunate enough to have faced this task. Although S110V would be the clear choice if choosing between the two steels of that and S90V and or others, as has been pointed out the Phil...

    Hello and welcome,
    I suspect it will be the closing aspect of left hand use more than the opening that may become a issue.

    And so it begins, again. Mine is on pre-order. It will share pocket time with its larger brother, my XL2 with S90V which I have become quite enamored with. Wish there were torx screws used...

    Hi Travis,
    Got to respectfully disagree with you on this one. I am talking about just a hair of pressure, just enough to prevent wobble. Never seen even the slightest hint of stress to the edge,...

    Hi,
    I too have thought about this. I just make sure to apply a extra touch of sideways pressure to achieve consistency.

    Voted lock since the limit is one selection, but in reality I am really interested in the combined package, especially 4 way clip and hopefully a upgraded baseline blade steel.

    This is a good question! I have seen videos of guys that could really flip and close Manix's at high speed, but not the XL2's. This has been my experience with the two XL's I have purchased recently,...

    Hi and welcome,
    I agree that unless you want to add a filler of your choice, your best bet would be to send it in. BTW, I really like my Resilience. Whole lot of bang for the buck...

    S90V on my Manix2 XL is another steel that really likes a toothy edge. Ankerson's testing has for some time now included results of different steel testing with courser edges. Very interesting data...

    I have purchased two PM2's, one Superleaf, and one Manix2 XL (S90V) this past year. I can say with out a doubt that the lock design of each played a big part of the consideration process with the...
