I know this review is going to go against the grain seeing as how most of the popular youtube reviewers seem to love it, but I have to say, I've been let down by my latest Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight purchase. Specs: Blade Steel: CTS BD-1 Handle Material: Blue Translucent FRCP Length Open: 8" (203mm) Blade Length: 3 3/8" (86mm) Length Closed: 4 5/8" (117mm) Hole Diameter: 9/16" (14mm) Blade Thickness: 1/8" (3mm) Weight: 3.0 oz. (g) Made In: USA The Good: 1) The blade steel seems to be pretty nice. It came out of the box super sharp and has held it's edge fairly well over the past 2 weeks with daily usage cutting cardboard, tape, rope, etc. 2) USA made. I love it any time I can buy a USA made knife that is reasonably priced. 3) Pocket Clip. I really dig the Spyderco wire pocket clip. It carries very well, is strong and is inconspicuous. The Bad: 1) The handle. This thing looks cheap and feels cheap. While using the knife to cut away on some rope the other day, I could feel the handle flexing in my grip. There aren't any stainless steel liners, which I think would help...but would also take away the "lightweight" factor. 2) Jimping...or lack thereof. Spyderco is famous for their wonderful jimping on blade spines and handles. This.........stuff.........sucks. It's not cut very deep and has rounded edges. There's "jimping" molded into the spine of the handle, but it offers little to no grip at all. 3) Ball bearing lock. On my other Manix 2 that I own, the ball bearing lock is secure and has held up strong. With this lightweight Manix, due to flex in the handle, the lock just doesn't feel as solid and secure. There's a lot of play in it and I don't care for that at all. 4) Pinned scales are the suck. Overall impression: Given the fact that this is a $ 90 knife and that Spyderco has a reputation for building quality knives, I was shocked at how cheap this knife felt. It's possible that I got a lemon, based on reviews I've seen online where folks gave it super high ratings. Or maybe it's that I built this knife up to be more than it should be and I set my expectations way too high. I'm probably going to send this one back to Spyderco and address several of the issues I have found and see what they have to say. IMO, if you're gonna spend the money, go ahead and throw in an extra $ 20 and pick up a G-10 handled Manix 2.
