Spyderco Manix 2, 3.37" Black Plain S30V Blade, Black G10 Handle - C101GPBBK2
A powerful synergy of high performance and low profile, the Manix 2 Black Blade is a reliable, full-service folding knife with a stealthy non-reflective finish. Its broad, full-flat-ground blade is precision machined from premium CPM S30V particle metallurgy stainless steel and coated with an ultra-durable black tungsten DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) coating. Matching areas of jimping (textured grooves) on the thumb ramp and the index-finger choil complement the handle's refined ergonomics to offer an amazingly secure, comfortable grip.
Its handle is constructed with full stainless steel liners, a stainless steel backspacer, and textured black G-10 scales. It houses the knife's high-strength Ball Bearing Lock mechanism, which consists of a hardened steel ball bearing encased in a polymer cage. When the knife is opened, a spring plunger drives the ball bearing forward onto a ramp on the blade, wedging it securely open. Pulling back on the cage releases the lock and allows the blade to pivot smoothly closed. Both opening and closing are easily performed with either hand and without ever placing your fingers near the blade's edge.
A reversible hourglass pocket clip supports left or right-side tip-up carry, complementing the blade's Trademark Round Hole and lock mechanism to make every aspect of the knife's carry, deployment, and operation completely ambidextrous. Like the blade, all-metal components of the handle feature a durable, non-reflective black coating that makes the Manix 2 Black Blade ideal for use in tactical environments where light discipline is critical.

Quick! List the most respected and innovative knife companies you can think of. If you know anything about knives, Spyderco is somewhere near the top. Spyderco Inc. makes some of the most unique and downright bizarre knife designs you'll see on the market, but from the number of passionate fans discussing, debating, and learning everything they can about Spyderco knives, it's clear that the company has done something right.
From the Glesser Family and the Spyderco Crew:
Since starting Spyderco we've been told our knives are different, peculiar, even out there. All true. Thinking beyond established knife industry barriers allowed us to introduce new and radical innovations to the knife culture including: One-hand opening, serrations on a folder and a clip to attach a knife to a pocket.
We didn't go into business to rake in a mountain of dough we're here for more selfish reasons- indulging our passion for creating knives. Spyderco is definitely out of the norm in the knife industry in our dedication to researching and developing fresh, improved and better performing materials all with function and reliability being key.
Someone once said to Sal Glesser, Spyderco's owner, "You must design in the dark because your knives look so strange." True again. Our recognizable appearance is a result of designing ergonomic functional tools rather than applying lipstick and nylons to a pocketknife. We may look curious, homely, whatever, but we'll never be called unusable or undependable.
Making knives that consistently deliver reliable high-performance requires an ongoing commitment to testing. In our million-dollar testing facility we examine edge retention with a CATRA machine, look for rust development with Q-FOG, check the force needed to open and close a knife. We also repeatedly test for stress, wear, optimal heat-treating and actively search for higher quality, performance enhancing steels and materials.
As a customer you probably don't think about this, or much care, but it allows us to put forth a promise. When you purchase a Spyderco you are buying a high-quality reliable cutting tool designed and manufactured for peak performance and ergonomic comfort. Those Who Know Carry Spyderco.
