Spyderco Knives: Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight Knife, CTS Maxamet Steel, SP-C101PGY2


The illustrated Spyderco Knife is the Spyderco Manix2 Lightweight Knife that features a 3.37" leaf shaped blade made of CTS Maxamet steel. The blade of this Spyderco knife has a flat grind, a notched thumb ramp and choil for secure grip, and the Spyderco hole for ambidextrous one hand opening. The textured gray FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co polymer) handle, 4.66" closed, has an encased Ball Bearing Lock and an oversized lanyard hole. A side to side reversible wire pocket clip is mounted at the butt end of this Spyderco Knife. The Spyderco Manix2 Lightweight Knife with Maxemet steel blade has an overall length of 8.03" and it weighs 3 ounces. Made in the USA.

From the Spyderco website: The soul of the C101PGY2 Manix 2 Lightweight is its flat-ground Carpenter CTS Maxamet tool steel. Its leaf-shaped profile flows seamlessly into the lines of the handle while providing both a forefinger choil and an understated thumb ramp. Both these areas feature strategic jimping (textured grooves) for a secure grip and support a forward grip for increased control during detailed cutting tasks. The blade's 14mm Trademark Round Hole makes one-handed deployment with either hand swift and positive.

The Manix 2 Lightweight's handle is injection molded from gray fiberglass reinforced copolymer (FRCP) and includes Spyderco's distinctive Bi-Directional Texturing pattern to ensure a secure grip in all environmental conditions. The lightweight FRCP handle reduced the overall weight of the knife to a mere 3 ounces--42 percent lighter than the G10 handled Manix 2. A reversible wire clip provides convenient left or right-side tip-up carry and an oversized lanyard hole allows the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards.

Linking the blade and handle is Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. This high-strength lock consists of a ball bearing nested within a durable textured polymer "cage." When the blade is deployed, a spring-loaded steel plunger drives the ball bearing forward to wedge between a ramp on the blade and an "anvil" in the handle's steel insert. Drawing the caged ball bearing to the rear releases the lock and allows the blade to close smoothly while keeping your fingers safely away from the sharp edge. Smooth, strong and easily operated, like the rest of the knife's features, the Ball Bearing Lock is also completely ambidextrous.

Carpenter CTS steel's Maxamet is a super-hard high-speed powdered tool steel possessing properties that transcend conventional high-speed tool steels approach those of cemented carbides, the ultra-hard materials used to machine other steels. When Carpenter developed this amazing alloy, they sent samples to various companies in the knife industry to evaluate as a blade material. Although many tried, Spyderco was one of only a handful of companies to successfully develop the specialized methods necessary to machine, heat treat and grind this demanding material to yield reliable, high-performance knife blades.

Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight, CTS Maxamet Steel Blade, C101PGY2
Awesome steel!
By 
The edge retention of the Maxamet steel is the best out of any other steel I've personally tested.
Even over my S110v Paramilitary 2 and 10V Farid Mehr K2.

My Manix 2 LW cut through a days worth of cardboard and still had a hair-shaving edge.

The only issue I found with the blade is how fast it corrodes. Mine formed a light patina just after slicing up a few fruits. You would probably want to keep the blade and pivot oiled if you live in a humid or moist environment.

As its name says, the knife is really lightweight; there are no steel liners, just FRN (Fiberglass Reinforced Nylon) scales, and a wired clip.

The ball bearing lock may be a bit hard to disengage if you don't have strong fingers, so also keep that in mind.

Otherwise, this knife is absolutely great for any sort of everyday cutting task you might need and keeps light in the pocket.
