I really hope we see a few runs in different colours as this is a great knife. Some different blade steels would be nice to see too! Hi DedRok, if I were you I'd grab a translucent blue one anyway. I found that 'in the flesh' so to speak the FRCP handle really isn't quite as translucent as the photo...

Glad you finally got your hands on one mate! I've never handled the original Paramilitary but always liked the look of the D2 in foliage. My first ever Spydie was a Foliage Green G10 UKPK...it really is a great handle colour isn't it :)

I live in the United Kingdom and in my eyes the Titanium UKPK is the best UK legal EDC that you can lay your hands on. Wonderfully functional, flawless to look at and rock solid to boot! I photographed this glass shattering scene to illustrate the sheer strength and beauty of this titanium marvel. A...

I'd love to carry that, although with tan G10 like the Manix 2 M4 sprint :D

Now if I could only choose one or the other, I'd take a full flat ground G10 Manix 2 sprint run over the lightweight any day of the week. However in the wonderful real-world where we are free to have both, I do find my G10 Manix 2 just a bit too heavy/cumbersome for pocket carry when I'm wearing a l...

My First Post Here - Manix 2 Lightweight Review

Hello all, First time poster here! I got bitten by the Spydie bug about two years ago and have been posting regularly on the 'British Blades' forum since then. My Spydercos however far outnumber any of my other sharp things so I thought I might as well jump in the water here too and contribute inste...
