Re: Clear Manix 2 LW Vanax SuperClean sprint?

In regard to wear/aging of the clear scales, I disagree that they would be horrible after even light use. If it were perfectly crystal clear like the aftermarket scales Spydergirl linked to, yes, they would be very apparently dirty very quickly. However the FRCP scales used in the prototype aren't p...

Re: Clear Manix 2 LW Vanax SuperClean sprint?

Thanks Sharp Guy, that’s the one! I really like the clear look with the silver of the blade, it’s a very clean look. You could call it Super Clean :cool: I would still love to see a production LC200N Manix 2 LW with translucent yellow or green scales, but this could be a pretty cool sprint, and it s...

Clear Manix 2 LW Vanax SuperClean sprint?

Just spitballing here, but I saw an old picture of a clear FRCP Manix 2 prototype at the 2010 Amsterdam meet, and I thought it would be a great candidate for a sprint! Trying to think of a nice stainless steel to compliment it, I thought Vanax SuperClean would be perfect. The clear scales would go w...

Lets hope the knockoffs stay bad, it's when you can't tell the difference that you have a big problem.

Re: Cruwear...where do I buy??

Me personally, I find it was a bit too hyped up. I could get it confused for S30V had it not been etched as Cruwear on both my Shaman and Manix. I find it very average. Not amazing, but not disappointing either (besides the super high pedestal I held it on based on the love of it around here, prior...

Re: A Manix 2 with a sharpening choil instead of a finger choil would be perfect, IMO

As others have said, I think a new CBBL model would be a more likely outcome than altering the Manix to not have a finger choil. If you eliminate the finger choil, you will also have to massage design of the handle a bit as the front of the handle has half a finger groove that joins with the choil i...

An S35VN Astute would be a great knife.

Get the Endura because it’s almost like a compact Police 4 lightweight. That’s an unconventional reason, haha!

Re: Reveal 6 Live!

Looking at the specs of the SmallFly 2 in comparison to the Manix 2 LW, the blade length and thickness is exactly the same, however there is more cutting edge, the closed length and overall length is slightly less and it only weighs 0.3 oz more! My current EDC is the Manix 2 LW, so I’m really excite...

SmallFly 2 almost a direct EDC replacement for a Manix 2 LW??

The SmallFly 2 is definitely the knife I am most excited about in the most recent reveal. I like the utilitarian blade, as I wanted a balisong I can EDC. That got me looking at the specs of my current EDC, a Manix 2 LW, and I realized it is a pretty direct competitor in many of its specs. Here's som...

Re: SmallFly 2!

With all due respect i think it looks like a "BaliSong converted" regular blade in a bit of a "home cooked" fashion. It hurts my OCD when i compare it to the OG Spyderfly or Hinderer Nieves.. Yeah, I had the same thought. Looks like a regular pivot folding blade with two thin (too thin?) handles. K...

Re: What are you buying from Reveal 6?

The SmallFly is the one that I would really like to add to my collection. I'd love to get a balisong, and with its pocket clip and utilitarian blade shape, it'll actually be somewhat practical for EDC.

Re: SmallFly 2!

I agree with Lance on the blade shape, its not as "pretty" as the original SmallFly or a lot of other balisong blade shapes, but its alot more practical, and if I get one (which I hope to) I'd be carrying it in my normal EDC rotation, so it makes alot of sense. The pocket clip also increases its act...

Re: Predictions for Reveal 6

I would love to see a Lil’ Native LW, I know it’s been in the works for a while. Manix LW Salt would be awesome too. A PM2 LW is a big possibility too.

Re: The perceived need for instantaneous one hand operation has driven folding knife design into a dead end

All the fields you listed are just that: fields. A field of technology or work/study is very different than an object. When you bring an object into a different “paradigm” it becomes a different object. There are already cutting tools in a different “paradigm” than knives. They are called scissors, ...

Re: The perceived need for instantaneous one hand operation has driven folding knife design into a dead end

And the knives I listed are just the ones that don’t share any other similarities. When you get into the amount of knives that share an opening mechanism but differ in one-hand operable lock designs, or knives that share the same lock but vary in a one-hand opening mechanism, the possible design var...
