Spyderco Manix 2 Lightweight Sprint REX 45 Burnt Orange FRCP C101PBORE2
Having gone through many changes and iterations since its introduction in the early 2000s, the Manix 2 is a more compact Maxix that is perfect for everyday carry while still offering full size knife performance. Spyderco's Ball Bearing Lock mechanism is the heart of the Manix offering some of the strongest lock performance while being fully ambidextrous and very smooth to operate. Paired with the RoundHole opener, the Ball Bearing lock makes the Manix very safe to operate, opening and closing without placing your fingers in the path of the blade.
This limited Sprint Run Lightweight comes with Burnt Orange FRCP handles and a blade of satin finished CPM-REX 45 high speed tool steel.
***One per household. Additional orders will be canceled.***
Brand new, direct from Spyderco Knives, USA.
Blade: A iconic, broad leaf shaped blade is delivered in fully flat ground, satin finished CPM-REX 45 for a great balance of slicing geometry, piercing capability and durability with a razor sharp plain cutting edge. REX 45 is a high hardness, high speed tool steel that offers excellent edge retention and edge stability for a thinner edge geometry for better slicing performance. A large, 14 mm RoundHole provides easy ambidextrous deployment on a smooth, phosphor bronze washer pivot with excellent action thanks to the Ball Bearing Lock detent. For optimal safety and control during use the jimped thumb ramp and index finger choil duo are unbeatable.
Handle: A stainless steel partial back spacer supports the Burnt Orange FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer) handles, both housing the rock solid Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. Pull back the polymer cage with either hand to disengage this smooth operator. Ergonomically designed with a pinky hook, subtle finger grooves and a nice palm swell, the Manix 2 Lightweight is secure and comfortable in the hand thanks to strategically placed jimping, a prominent index guard and forward choil along with the high-traction Bi-Directional Texturing. A generously large hole is provided for lanyard attachment.
Carries via a reversible, tip-up only, stainless steel wire clip.
Ball Bearing Lock: One of Spyderco's strongest, smoothest operating lock mechanisms, the Ball Bearing Lock consists of a hardened steel ball bearing housed 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. Operating the knife is easily performed with either hand without placing your fingers near the blade’s edge.
Carries via a reversible (tip-up) stainless steel wire pocket clip.
CPM Rex 45: CPM REX 45 (Hitachi HAP40) is a super-high-speed particle metallurgy tool steel enriched with large volumes of cobalt, tungsten, molybdenum and vanadium. Its high cobalt content increases the attainable hardness and enhances the positive properties other elements. The addition of vanadium promotes the formation of vanadium carbides, which provide high wear resistance, fine grain size, and increased toughness.
