The Manix 2 FRN was shown last year with both a blue and a clear FRN handle. While the previous prototype would ‘ creak’ a bit when squeezed hard, this proto seemed perfectly solid to me. It’s a very light but still solid feeling knife. I love the blue color, but I do hope to also see a production version with the clear FRN that was shown last year. This proto even had that nice opening action of the regular production Manix. It looks finished to me, I’ll take two; one PE and one CE/SE.
