I flick it open with my middle finger but there are lot of ways to open one. I found this for you.
Nice thanks for the pic, I dig the look of the FRN handle. I'm almost decided on a delica but the back lock is the only downside. I have only experienced cheap back lock knives so I'm sure it's different with spyderco.
It's too bad spyderco doesn't make and frn handle with a liner lock because I don't know if I like the G10 as much.
Definitely liking the hole for opening the knife, I use my middle finger on the backside of the knife to open ones with thumb studs.
Do you like the handle material on that knife? I think it was a tenacious or persistence?
I'm not too concerned with the steel type, spyderco uses good steel and I don't have anything to compare it to other than gerber so it will be better. What does the G10 material feel like compared to frn?
The scales on the Tenacious are smooth. They aren't going to tear up your hands or your pants.
Just found the Manix2.
Good price? The blade is a little long considering how much I like the Delica but I think the ball bearing lock is cool and the handle looks good. A new steel type and under$100.
Just picked up a Ontario Rat 2 today. It is the baby brother to the Rat 1.
Awesome knife and under $30.
You're better off with a Mini Grip. I just received a Manix 2 blue lightweight in the mail and am not impressed. It feels cheap.
I used to scratch my knuckles on the handle of my Tenacious when reaching in my pocket. They need to bevel the sharp edges. Great knife though!
Good to know. If it feels like a $10 knife then it wasn't worth whatever you payed. I know the feeling exactly. I have a knife floating around the house that feels like that.
Delica 4 v. Mini Grip, there is a thread on this subject that I found. It looks like I might have to get both but which one first...
There are a lot of folks who love the Manix 2 lightweight. It's not that it's a bad knife, but it just didn't feel very solid in my hand. The scales flex a lot when squeezed. Maybe I got a lemon, but it is definitely the first Spyderco I've ever tried that felt cheaply made.
Did you happen to get my message I sent you about where you can find that specific Mini Grip you're wanting for around $ 63?
Yeah, I'm getting pretty close to pulling the trigger on that knife. That is a hard price to beat. I appreciate the link.
You're very welcome! I just realized you're in the UK, so hopefully the discount will cover the expected shipping costs.
Shoot I need to update that info, I just recently moved back to GA.
LOL! Well in that case, free shipping it is!
I have yet to hold a knife that feels as perfect as my pm2 and once you use one it will be very hard to spend money on a lesser knife especially when most cost almost as much as a para2

Under 100, I would suggest the higher end CRKT Ripple, it's about 80$ frame lock, with a acuto+ steel, Also it carries pretty deep. It's light an is a wierd design, I would look into those.
Thanks everyone for the recommendations and pictures. I have decided I will probably get both at one point or another. Right now I am going to get the Spyderco Delica 4, not the FFG version but the regular grind with the black FRN handle. Pretty standard and I think a good start for me since I do not currently own a Spyderco. It's time to see what all the hoopla is about.
You should get the FFG version, it is a much better slicer. I had the Delica 4 Wave with the regular saber grind and ended up trading it because it was a to do food prep with.
I found the Bug to be too small to use. My Ladybug though is perfect, small enough for keychain but big enough to be useable. And if you don't feel comfortable carrying something called Ladybug they have the Manbug which is an nth bigger.
I really like these Spydercos, in order of smallest to largest:
