    so 2014 Manix 2 are FFG now?

    including the CE? Did my eyes deceive me in the new 2014 catalog?

    I'll have to get a proper Manix 2 then to complement my lightweight. It not being FFG before now is what's been holding me back from buying one.

    I read it as, FFG, skeletonized liners, tumbled finish.

    All black and fully serrated would be good for me

    Glad I got a hg in 154CM yesterday!

    Had the blue S30V sprint run and a lightweight - both traded, don't dig the ffg on the Manix!

    I've been waiting for the FFG skeletonised S30V Manix.

    I think 5.2 oz is a typo. If you look at the website at another FFG sprint,
    http://www.spyderco.com/catalog/details.php?product=684

    the weight is listed as 4.25 oz which makes more sense.

    If that's the case it's kinda a shame. FFG is a dime a dozen to properly ground HG knives.

    I like that M2 is FFG now. Hopefully in a year or two M2 LW will get more wear resistant steel.

    Ugh. Reason I bought a lightweight Manix 2 was because of the FFG blade. Now I'm going to need to sell the lightweight to fund the purchase of the new FFG model

    I really like FFG and I found a Mini Manix. Now I might need a new Manix 2 too.
