Spyderco Manix 2 Foliage Green G-10 XHP
Carpenter Steel Company is enjoying a hospitable welcome from knifemakers and manufacturers. Well known for their performance automotive, aerospace, energy, medical, defense, and consumer products industries steels, they recently began offering high-performance blade steels. CTS XHP is air hardened, high carbon and high chromium with corrosion resistance similar to 440C-type steels and with hardness qualities found in tool steel. Its edge retention, ability to be machined to a fine edge, and consistent heat-treatability make it perfect for everything from knives to surgical and hand tools, even ice skate blades. Paired with the Manix2 handle featuring Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock innovation made using a hardened free-floating ball bearing contained in a custom polymer cage, it's an exceptional combination. The round ball bearing allows the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking-up with solid confidence. The Ball Bearing Lock's strength withstands hard work with a secure, versatile and comfortable grip. Ergonomics are peerless in this design. Handle is foliage green G-10 resulting in a durable, slip free handle material that's lightweight and textured. The blade is full flat-ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) above a super sized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. The Jimping doesn't stop there. With full steel liners the scales have jimping that extends beyond the G-10 handle scales scalloping areas of the handle's perimeter. The skeletonized liners pull double purpose adding rigidity and lightweight strength to the handle. A three-screw clip is left/right-hand carry, positioned for comfort and deep pocket carry.
