Detailed Description

Manix 2 XL


The large Manix 2 is an oversized version of the Manix 2 with a blade that is just under four-inches. The blade is locked open using Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock. The lock is comprised of a free-floating steel ball-bearing encased in a high-tech polymer cage. When opened, the ball bearing moves forward onto the blade's ramp where it is wedged, locking the blade safely open.
The spherical shape of the ball rotates freely allowing the lock to self-adjust across a large surface, ensuring smooth and confident lock-up every time it is opened. The blade is CPM-S30V, ground full-flat and features jimping above the oversized 14mm Spyderco Round Hole. The jimping texture continues from the blade's spine to the full-length skeletonized steel liners.
The liners inside the G-10 handle extend beyond the scales, creating a scalloped pattern around the handle's perimeter for additional grip. This feature keeps the knife from slipping out in the hand and works well with gloves. The liners serve a double purpose by adding rigidly and lightweight strength to the handle. A three-screw clip can be positioned ambidextrously, tip-up for comfort and pocket carry. The knife also has a large lanyard pipe to protect various types of cords or thongs.

Manix 2XL
Glen Bonney (Cibolo, TX) 8/31/2012 3:55 PM
Excellent high value collectible knife. I personally like my knives on the heavier 4 to 5 ounce weight size. This is replacing a well worn Spyderco Endura as my EDC. Love the S30V blade material, and jimping is perfect. G10 makes the XL feel great in the hand. Like others who've written reviews on this blade own several ZT blades. I love them, but in most cases ZT and EDC is impractical. I'm only comparing the two because of size and weight. The Manix 2XL is a game changer, it's big yet not beefy, well balanced and feels good in the pocket. 5 stars to this blade it's a keeper.

Bad a..
alex p. (Chula Vista, CA) 7/18/2012 12:44 AM
Indeed this is a bad a.. knife; everything already said by the other guys is true; what I like the most about this knife is the ergonomic comfort; it feels like it was made for my hands. The design of the lock is pure genius, similar to the Dodo but a lot easier to unlock; the blade swings open by inertia by holding the lock back and flicking it with my wrist, similar to the Benchmade Axis lock, love it. S30V steel is the bomb, I have cut a lot of cardboard and paracord with this blade and it is still paper cutting sharp, amazing; the relief edge is perfection. I bought this knife after I found out the regular Manix 2 FFG was out of stock, and I don't regret it; the blade is a beast, just a little shorter than my Super Commander and a tad longer than my ZT 0560, which are the biggest knives I own; then of course the looks are just amazing, the "proud" liners make it look like a custom knife; and 92 bucks for a USA made knife makes the whole package a hell of a deal, definitely the best price out there, I checked. By the way, thanks Jeff, again, for your awesome customer service, it's hard to stop raving about it.

Tactical folder for sure
John Olha (Maricopa, AZ) 6/21/2012 4:34 PM
Mine just arrived today, and yes like the other review says you have to hold it to appreciate the size of this beast. For me definitely on the large side for a blade I am going to EDC regularly - when I am out with a pair of 5.11 pants of course carrying pretty much any knife is a non issue. The clip does ride too low for my taste that is probably my biggest complaint as I like my knife to ride deep in pocket. Ergo, lockup, blade centering, traction plan are all excellent. If you are looking for something a little smaller that rides better in pocket, grab a Paramilitary 2.

Exactly what it should be
Wayne Yasinski (boise, ID) 1/23/2012 4:08 AM
1st off, to appreciate the sheer size of this knife you have to hold it. This knife screams tactical folder in the same sentence as say strider or ZT's. This knife is a beast, full scales and a great lock up. Mine came perfectly centered with zero blade play. Did someone order jimping??? Practical and would even make nutnfancy proud , its not light but fills your hand insanely well and did replace my SMF as my EDC tactical folder. Perfect ergonomics..The blade to me seems more practical then say the military and for defiantly more so than the para2, i don't worry about the tip when using this knife. Its a work horse steel in the s30v and cut through tires with ease due to the FFG blade. My only gripe is the pocket clip, i wish it was higher, as the top sticks out a bit but certainly isn't a huge deal when employed in the knife pocket of 511 tac-lite pro pants. You have seen it said on many you-tube vids, this is what the mantix 2 should of been! All in all this is a home-run for us sypderco fans and i highly recommend this knife for anyone looking for a tactical folder. For those looking for ZT 300 series or striders this is the knife for you and at half the cost of ZT's and a quarter of the cost of striders this knife cant be beat...for a user knife nothing comes close. I actually question the need to carry my military...for bigger guys or gloves the g-10 is very grippy, with the weight to say im in your pocket...for the price its heavenly...
