    My God. What a piece of ****. It will not close.

    I simply cannot believe that I purchased it.

    I am not a troll. I cannot close my knife.

    I have not loosened any screws.

    My GF has a hard time closing that one also, if you pull the clear plastic thumb tab down away from the tip of the blade it should just about fall shut. If not call spyderco :)

    I can't believe this. I suppose I'll have to call Spyderco but this is simply ludicrous.

    I had no problems at all until today. For some inexplicable reason it just won't shut now. I am pretty bummed out about this.

    Well, this is a completely worthless blade from my perspective although the glow in the dark feature is pretty cool. I'm just pleased as hell that I spent well over $100 on it.

    I am not a knife novice and I have no idea why the Manix won't shut without extreme prejudice.

    If the knife has a defect, send it to Spyderco. I am sure they will fix or replace it. My Moonglow operates flawlessly.

    I have no doubt that they will make this good. It is a pain in the ***, though.

    Does the lock not disengage? Blade won't close after disengaging the lock?

    If you want to try to fix the tightness yourself, you should try loosening the largest screw, the one that controls pivot tightening. If that doesn't fix it, Spyderco Customer Service definitely will.

    Jon tightened the pivots IIRC on all the overseas bound knives, is yours one of those? as many others have said I'd contact Spyderco.... Jon's city was hit by a tornado (He's without power currently), but you can also try getting in touch with him if you don't mind waiting. Mine (as many others do) works perfectly, so hopefully they'll get this issue sorted out in a timely manner.

    No offense but wow

    Has everything you ever owned always worked perfect?

    Have you tried to find out why it wont close before you *****?

    Most of the time ( not always but mostly) it the persons own fault rather than the product.


    Plus there is a warranty, relax, if something is wrong im sure it can be fixed.. It happens

    I regret starting this thread. Although I was pretty ****** off that my new Manix Moonglow has a significant defect, it is not the first product I have purchased that was flawed. It happens sometimes.

    This was really a pretty whiny thread, actually.

    First, are you able to move the locking mechanism? When it is new it can sometimes stick in the locked position and may require the use of both hands. Once it breaks in it will be fine.

    Second, Spyderco uses the CRK-style pivot bushing on the Manix 2 so it should not be possible to overtighten the pivot, however, you may want to try loosening it if the action of the blade opening is fairly stiff. On the Manix 2 the blade should open nearly effortlessly and smoothly once you overcome the detent.

    Assuming you are outside of the US, have you looked into what Boy Surefire said? Jon has been tightening the ones going outside of the US in an effort to prevent them getting seized by customs.
