Spyderco 2017 Production Sample – Manix 2 Back Lock

The Manix 2 was a nice surprise for the Amsterdam Meet. My first Manix, was in fact one of those hefty Mini Manixes with a back lock. This version is a bit bigger and seemed much lighter than the original Mini Manix. The thick G-10 handle slabs come sans liners! I was happy to note that steel threaded inserts are used to fix the clip, something a lefty like me certainly appreciates. The G-10 also features a very fine but still aggressive texture on the surface. This micro texture seems like a nice compromise between going easy on the pocket but still providing a very positive grip in hand. I’m not sure what the lock strength is on this back lock versus the caged ball lock on the regular Manix 2. This back lock should be easier to manipulate with gloves though.

  1. […] Manix 2 Back Lock Last year we learned the Manix family would be growing with the addition a version made of Maxamet steel. In 2017, the popular line will continue to grow with news of the Manix 2 Back Lock. The new knife is reminiscent of the very first Manix which also was built with a Back Lock. Spydercollector tells us this new variant is noticeably different from the original. New micro-textured G-10 handle scales offer a less aggressive grip. The 2017 edition is also completely linerless to keep the weight in line with its Ball Bearing brother. […]
