I picked up an all black Manix2 at the SFO Saturday (it was the last one they had in stock so I figured I'd better grab it while I could). Took it home and re-profiled/polished the edge. Man the 154CM took a sweet edge , , ,and polish. Anyway, when I was putting it up I closed it and this is when I noticed some side-to-side blade play when it is in the closed position. No play whatsoever in the opened position. I checked all my other Spyderco (30+) and none of them had any play. In fact, I've never had any problems with any Spyderco product.
So I go to the SFO today to see what they thought. Low and behold, both the SE and CE that were in the display case had the same type of blade play while in the closed position (but none when opened). Weird.
If it was any more play I'd just have their warranty dept look at it (but the guys at the SFO said they are pretty back-logged right now). If it was any less it wouldn't be an issue. All the fasteners on it are tight , , ,as confirmed by the guys at the SFO. So I'm wondering: Has anyone else here had a Manix2 that had blade play while opened but absolutely none while opened?
Don't get me wrong, my faith in Spyderco is unfettered, and the Manix2 is absolutely one of my favorite Spydercos, , I'm just curious if anyone else has similar issues.
