Spyderco’s original Manix 2 Lightweight pioneered the concept of the ultra-lightweight, full-service folding knife.
The latest version of this award-winning knife raises the bar even higher with the addition of a low-profile Diamond Like Carbon (DLC) coating on the blade.
Harder than the blade steel itself, this state-of-the-art coating eliminates reflection off the blade and makes this knife the lightweight cutting tool of choice in environments where light discipline is a concern.
The full-flat-ground PlainEdge™ blade is crafted from high-performance CTS®BD1N stainless steel and features an opposing index-finger choil and thumb ramp for superior control during precision cutting tasks.
Both areas include jimping (textured grooves) for maximum purchase and are complemented by an oversized Trademark Round Hole™ that allows swift one-handed opening, even while wearing gloves.
The Manix 2 Lightweight’s handle is injection molded from fiberglass-reinforced co-polymer (FRCP)—a tough, incredibly lightweight material that keeps the knife’s overall weight down to a mere three ounces.
Joining the blade and handle is Spyderco’s patented high-strength Ball Bearing Lock™ mechanism, which offers exceptional strength and fully ambidextrous operation.
The handle includes a deeply molded Bi-Directional Texturing™ pattern for maximum grip security and a reversible black wire clip that provides left or right-side tip-up carry.
Made with pride in the U.S.A., the black-bladed Manix 2 Lightweight offers extreme performance in an incredibly weight-conscious package.
