Re: Manix titanium ball bearing cage

i wish spyderco had used a different material than plastic for the g10 manix. i’ve never thought the plastic looked or felt right with the g10. it’s fine for the lw though.

Re: Why all the Manix love?

Yeah, I was disappointed as well when I saw it didn't have the manix liners. Hmm. That's odd. I thought it was great not having the liners. I thought it made for a cleaner and less busy design. There is certainly no way those thick slabs of G10 were ever going to be less than adequate. Funny too ab...

Re: Why all the Manix love?

how can anyone think this is ugly? it has great lines, despite having finger grooves and a little bit of thumb ramp, and it is just a slicey beast of a beautifully refined workhorse. it’s so good that i can hardly understand any objection to it. maybe it’s just perfect for my hands though and not as...

Re: Why all the Manix love?

i can pinch my lw on the cbbl with my middle finger and thumb and pull it back enough to push the blade closed with my index finger. the cbbl takes some getting used to, but it’s very secure. the comp lock is slightly more fun to play with, but the i think the cbbl is better functionally.

Re: Why all the Manix love?

the manix 2 is the best pocket knife ever made. it's comfortable in every grip (easily better than the pm2). it has a great versatile blade shape. it's got a strong lock. it's narrow at the top of the pocket. it can only be improved with a rustproof steel and screws on the lw version. that being sai...

Re: Teal S30V Dragonfly Exclusive

Re: You can run any model you want in LC200N. Which do you choose?

manix 2 is what i want the most, followed by the lil native, but really, i’d like to see all the golden models at least get a standard lc200n production run. lw is fine, but i’d really like g10 with liners.

Re: The Future of the Para 2? I'm sort of worried

personally, i don’t care for the pm2 and actually preferred the para3’s ergos. that said, the pm2 is pretty iconic for spyderco and i don’t see it going anywhere.

Re: Choil-less Spyderco Knives

i think it makes less sense on a large knife and more sense on a small knife. that said, i like them on mid sized knives that i edc as well so that i can get that same control i have on smaller knives. i also love spyderco’s jimping and enjoy feeling the blade in my grip. it also opens up the knife ...

Re: native salt!

got another rust spot on my native salt. i think i might have figured out what’s going on though. based on what i’ve read about lc200n, it’s susceptible to corrosion when in contact with other metals. well, i recently touched up my native salt on the sharpmaker and took it for a swim in the pacific ...

Re: Knives you rarely carry but hesitate to part with for non sentimental reasons?

pretty much all of my knives from other makers. mostly cheaper knives that are plenty good, but not as much of a joy to carry as a spyderco. they aren't really worth much to anyone else and i still like every one of them. all of my spyderco knives get cycled through the rotation, but only one is a s...

Can we please make this happen lol. Or at the very least do another sprint run of the xhp manix.
Wasn't it a dealer exclusive? Knifecenter, I think?

Re: Make the Manix 2 LW XHP regular production

i wasn’t a fan of the brown, but i’m glad i ordered it anyway. it grew on me. most of the colors listed here probably would not though. i prefer earth tones. and, as much as i love my xhp manix, i really would rather have one in lc200n, even if it’s not a full salt model.

Re: Caribbean vs Military

I got curious so I took mine apart, there would still be a bit of a hump at the end, definitely more than a Manix but far less than there is now. https://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee275/EVIL85SSP/Knives/Spyderco%20Caribbean/20190701_100701_zpsrvrg3tib.jpg https://i229.photobucket.com/albums/ee275...

Re: Caribbean vs Military

Joining the "hook at the end of the handle-discussion", I must say I totally like such a hook, as long as it does not impair a good four finger grip .(by making the actual grip-area too short). Of course that's strongly correlated to the particular hand size of a person. So for my particular handsi...

Re: Largest Spyderco you're comfortable with?

my largest spyderco is the resilience. i really like everything about that knife and wish spyderco would make a version in a better steel that isn’t a budget version. a resilience salt in lc200n might replace the manix as my favorite knife.
