Me first, my two babies,

Spyderco Para-Military 2 - g10 and S30V steel (hard to find right now)




Stretch 2 Carbon Fiber - Carbon and ZDP-189 steel




Side By Side


Hey CC, what's the blade length and OAL on that Manix II? That' one sweet lookin blade.

length overall 8 in. (203 mm) blade length 3 3/8 in. (86 mm) blade steel 154CM
length closed 4 5/8 in. (117 mm) cutting edge 2 7/8 in. (73 mm) weight 5 oz. (143 g)
hole diameter 9/16 in. (14 mm) blade thickness 1/8 in. (3 mm) handle material G-10

A recipe for folding knife success: Start with hard-use rated lock. Add a blade made of exotic high carbon steel. Manufacture it in Golden, Colorado using precise tolerances then add a healthy dash of American innovation. These ingredients are the Manix2, a concoction of solo features when combined make one of the strongest knives from Spyderco to date.

Patented by Spyderco, the Manix2 has a Ball Bearing Lock. It’s a hardened free-floating ball bearing contained in a custom hi-tech polymer cage. The round ball bearing allows the lock to self adjust across a large surface, smoothly and consistently locking-up with solid confidence. Evolving over time, the Ball Bearing Lock’s strength withstands hard work with a secure, versatile and comfortable grip. Ergonomics are peerless in this design. The blade is 154CM and hollow-ground with aggressive thumb serrations (jimping) above a super sized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. The Jimping doesn’t stop there. With full steel liners the scales have jimping that extends beyond the G-10 handle scales scalloping areas of the handle’s perimeter. This one is not slipping out of your hand and works well with gloves on! The liners pull double purpose by adding rigidly and lightweight strength to the handle. A three-screw clip is left/right-hand carry, positioned for comfort and deep pocket carry. The knife also has a large lanyard pipe to protect various types of cords or thongs.
My favorite EDC is an Endura. I've been carrying them since they came out back around 1990 I believe. Great knife for the price and light weight. tom.
I have been caring a Spyderco AUS 8 Stainless, Seki City, since 2008. Only lost it once, but a friend found it. Tough knife for sure.
