The original Manix 2 Lightweight was the Winner of Blade magazine’s coveted Most Innovative American Design award. It combined the full-service cutting performance of the popular Manix 2 with a revolutionary lightweight handle molded from tough FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer). This version of the Manix 2 Lightweight is identical to that award-winning knife, with the exception of its handle color.
Weighing in at a scant three ounces, the Manix 2 Black Lightweight features a full-flat-ground CTS BD1 stainless steel blade with Spyderco's signature Trademark Round Hole for easy, ambidextrous, one-handed opening. The blade is supported by a high-strength Ball Bearing Lock housed within a precision-machined steel insert in the handle. The durable FRCP handle includes a molded Bi-Directional Texture pattern to ensure a secure grip in even the most demanding environments. A reversible wire clip provides left or right-side tip-up carry and makes the operation and carry of this knife completely ambidextrous.
