A recipe for folding knife success: Start with hard-use rated lock. Add a blade made of exotic high carbon steel. Manufacture it in Golden, Colorado using precise tolerances then add a healthy dash of American innovation. These ingredients are the Manix2, a concoction of solo features when combined make one of the strongest knives from Spyderco to date. Patented by Spyderco, the Manix2 has a Ball Bearing Lock. It’s a hardened free-floating ball bearing contained in a custom hi-tech polymer cage. The round ball bearing allows the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking-up with solid confidence. Evolving over time, the Ball Bearing Lock’s strength withstands hard work with a secure, versatile and comfortable grip. Ergonomics are peerless in this design. The blade is 154CM and 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. This one is not slipping out of your hand and works well with gloves on! The liners pull double purpose by adding rigidly and lightweight strength to the handle. A three-screw clip is left/right-hand carry, positioned for comfort and deep pocket carry. The knife also has a large lanyard pipe to protect various types of cords or thongs.
A three-screw clip allows left- or right-handed carrying, and is positioned for deep-pocket comfort.
One of Spyderco's most popular knife models, the Manix2 -- hand-built in Golden, Colorado -- features a blade made of exotic high carbon steel and patented, hard use-rated ball bearing lock. The hardened, free-floating ball bearing lock is contained in a custom polymer cage, allowing the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking up. The blade is made of 154CM metal, full-flat ground with aggressive thumb serration jimping above an oversized, 14-millimeter round hole. Full steel liners have jimping that extends beyond the G-10 handle scales, scalloping areas of the handle's perimeter for nonslip use, even with gloves on. The double-purpose liners add rigidly and lightweight strength to the handle, while a three-screw clip is formatted for left- or right-handed carrying.

Thinking beyond established knife industry practices has allowed Spyderco to introduce new innovations, including one-hand opening, serrations on a folder, and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket. Spyderco remains dedicated to researching and developing improved, better-performing materials with function and reliability, and its unique cutlery line is a result of designing ergonomic, functional tools. The company puts its new products through rigorous testing prior to release, examining edge retention with a CATRA machine, looking for rust development with Q-FOG, checking the force needed to open and close a knife, and analyzing numerous other technical details.
