Re: Spyderco Manix 2 CPM-SPY27 Cobalt Blue FRCP C101PCBL2

I'm waiting for screw construction before I buy any more Manix LWs. Sold my few I had in the last purge. None until screws for me. Hopefully they change over before this one. Yes, I hear you steelcity16. It is time. No need to keep treating the Manix 2 like this. It's 2020, and time for screw const...

Since Wednesday January 15, 2020 @12:37 PM as a matter of fact. I feel It's time to bring this knife ...

Did knifecenter sell theirs yet?

I have to think, that they would all be sold by now, so I just called them quick. And yes, they have sold all of theirs, and do not expect any more in, GarageBoy.

You got one! Can't wait to hear your thoughts on rex45! [EDIT: Sorry for going off topic in this "alert only thread"! Had already posted my reply before realizing that] Yes I did! :) And actually the by far most important reason (if not even the sole one) was that I wanted to try REX45 and the Mani...

Thank you RamZar. I tried to find this thread for Holybotulism too, but it was just buried too deep. I couldn't find it. :rolleyes:

Re: Could someone please post pics of Shaman, Manix and Native next to each other?

Big fat Thank You! The Manix *is* slightly different in shape. It has a mini thumb ramp, and one extra wave or whatever you call it for in between inded and middle finger. And a rounder butt. But the Shaman truly is a Native on steroids. :) And since I love the Native... :rolleyes: The Chief isn't ...

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

I wonder which Mules 29 & 30 are going to be. Goes from 28(Spy27) to 31(s45vn). Any guesses? 15v? Some kind of Damasteel? VG10W? Maybe serrated Mules of Spy27 and S45vn? Good catch, PStone! I missed that. :rolleyes: When I first got to that page, I could have sworn that it said that this Mule (S45V...

FRN or FRCP? I'll just believe whatever is printed on the box. Should be here today.

I'm going to have to vote the other way, Tucson Tom. I think it's a typo on the box, and that the knife is still being made with FRCP. :) . . . . . Sal?

Re: Manix2 LW Rex45

As a matter of fact is it possible to distinguish between FRN and FRCP based on appearance alone? Thanks. No, not that I know of bchan. If I recall correctly. One of the reasons that FRCP was chosen for the Manix. Was it's ability to be made translucent. Like the Spyderco Manix 2 Knife Translucent ...

I regrettably sold my 52100 Manix during my last purge and now I can't even find one on the secondary market. Let me know if you see any of those at the SFO!!

How could you sell a Manix!? . . . . . I'm bumping you down a couple of notches, on my 'smart guys' list.

Re: Manix2 LW Rex45

As of this afternoon. Sunday, September 6th, 2020.
Between myself, and a couple of friends of mine. We have 4 different Date Codes so far, on this knife.

:spyder: Dates codes so far:
LS
FT
GT
HT

Not a bad thing. Just an observation, and an interesting one at that! :D

Re: Manix2 LW Rex45

I noticed the FRN vs FRCP discrepancy as well. I was going to call, asking about that, but I didn’t get around to it this week. It’s worthy of note, though, that the Native FRN and the Manix FRCP are still slightly different shades of burnt orange. I plan to post a picture comparing them to old and...

Spyderco always seems to be full of surprises! :D Mine arrived today, with Date Code 'LS' (Dec. 2019) :rolleyes: A friend of mine got his in today as well. His is Date Coded 'GT' (July 2020) What could be considered even more surprising? The box is labeled: "Manix Pln Frn REX 45" Historically, and i...

Re: Manix 2 flytanium cage opinions?

It just seems harder to use than either a compression or axis lock. It's a tough call, to say whether it's worth it or not. I've bought a few over time. I like them. I put a copper one on my burnt orange Rex 45 Manix for example. They go good together. A few of the plain Ti, on some of the other on...
