Spyderco C101GP2 Manix 2 - CPM-S30V Blade - Black G-10 Handles

Meet the journeyman workhorse of Spyderco's Manix 2 series. This dependable, all-purpose folding knife that showcases Spyderco’s Made-in-USA quality and patented Ball Bearing Lock™. Its broad blade is precision machined from Crucible’s premium CPM® S30V® particle metallurgy stainless steel and features a full-flat grind for an exceptional balance of edge geometry and strength. Matching areas of jimping (textured grooves) on the thumb ramp and the index-finger choil complement the handle’s refined ergonomics to offer an amazingly secure, comfortable grip.

Constructed with full stainless steel liners, a stainless steel back spacer, and textured black G-10 scales, the Manix 2’s handle is home to a high-strength Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. One of the strongest, smoothest operating lock mechanisms, it consists of a hardened steel ball bearing encased in a polymer cage. When the knife is opened, a spring plunger drives the ball bearing forward onto a ramp on the blade, wedging it securely open. Pulling back on the cage releases the lock and allows the blade to pivot smoothly closed. Both opening and closing are easily performed with either hand and without ever placing your fingers near the blade’s edge.

To ensure instant access and ease of carry, the Manix 2 includes a reversible hourglass clip that supports left or right-side tip-up carry. It compliments the blade’s Trademark Round Hole and lock mechanism to make every aspect of the knife’s carry, deployment, and operation completely ambidextrous.

    Spyderco Manix 2 G-10, s30v

    Posted by Jody Stevens on Aug 3rd 2021

    I received an excellent example of the Spyderco Manix 2 G-10 s30v. Great fit and finish and a drop of pivot oil made it a free dropping blade straight away. Came just under hair whittling sharp out of the box. A few careful light strokes on the flats of the spyderco sharpmaker with the ultra fine rods and it was cutting free hanging hair on contact. Jeff is always a pleasure to deal with, absolutely great service at The Cutlery Shoppe !!

    This knife is flawless in fit and finish. Probably the best ergonomics of any folder I've owned. Lock up is amazingly solid. Only real downside is the folded size. Takes up a lot of pocket space.

    Great knife

    Posted by Scott on Mar 6th 2014

    I hated the ball bearing lock at first. I found it difficult to manipulate, and, because I insist on one-handed operation, I didn't think I could live with it. But it just took a little getting used to. Play with it awhile, and you'll find I'm right. If you're used to back locks, it takes some adjustment.

    As for the rest of the knife, you have a wonderful steel, great feel in the hand, very nice craftsmanship, and a true ambidextrous design. I still prefer my Manix2 XL, and knock this knife only because the blade is a bit too short for my preference, but it's wonderful just the same.

    And of course, thanks Cutlery Shoppe for being the best vendor out there.

    Buy This Knife

    My Manix has been a daily-use work knife for over two years and the pivot and lock show no wear. I use my knives frequently and rigorously, so this is saying a lot. This is one of the best values in American-made knives and the service from Cutlery Shoppe is first rate.
