    I am wondering if it is hard or easy to open with gloves on because I wear pretty thick gloves at work how is it to open

    Hold the knife with one hand, with the other hand, using your thumb and index fingers, pinch the spine of the blade and pull. If you really need a knife that can be opened/closed one handed with gloves, I'd suggest a fixed blade.

    How thick are the gloves? Pretty thin ones, you should be OK,....the hole is better than the thumb stud design.

    There is only one way to know for sure, buy the knife and see!

    Huntnow is right though, a fixed blade would be the best option.

    Not sure how the Manix compares to the PM2, but it was my favorite winter time outdoor folder.
    Sold it in anticipation of the rumored Para3, but that knife didn't end up being what I expected, so I'm still holding off. I miss having a suitable winter folding knife though.

    There is a Manix 2 lw for sale right now in buy sell trade. Looks like it’s priced to move as well.

    I had the same problem with most of my Spydercos combined with a compromised right thumb so went with a flipper that I can open even with thick gloves.
