That's great! I really hope it's not in S30V, but I have a feeling it will be. This would be perfect for 3V

Wow that is awesome. I am all about linerless G10.


PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GOD MAKE THE MANIX 2 WITH THE BALL BEARING LOCK IN SOLD G10/NO LINERS.

This is a winner for me. If it has the super tight Native5 backlock this is a homerun!

Sort of curious why more knives like this don't get the Power Lock?

Wow! That's great news for fans of the M2 and back locks. This one should be a winner for sure!

I like the fact that it's going to be a bit thicker. The M2, that is. :) The other introduced spydies look pretty darn cool, too!

If it's linerless, how does the pocket clip screw in?

I like the looks of that. I'll probably pick one up.

Sal, any plans for an XL version as well? I was thinking about buying a Manix 2 XL this month but might wait to compare the two versions if its getting the same treatment.

I'd guess that "lesser" locks, having already proven themselves in smaller folders, make the cost of scaling down the PowerLock not especially compelling.

I suspect the PowerLock was just something Sal and Eric wanted to prove to themselves, and the Tatanka gave them not only a use-case (namely, a folder with fixed-blade pretensions), but also the real estate to do it.

Truth be told, I have no real use for my Tatanka, fun though it is to fondle.

Isn't this a normal back lock?

Why no liners, I wonder. Or, to get at the point I really want to make, why liners in other knives?

This one did feel like the N5 back lock to me at the meet. I'm also looking forward it.

We got a fondle of this at the Meet. It's bee-yoot-iful :)

Was just going to chime in and tell y'all :)
Indeed it felt really, really nice! I hate to say it but i prefer this over the CBBL Manix 2
Re. the pocket clip - I didn't go over it with a magnifying glass, but i'd guess it's Helicoil threads / threaded inserts in the handle.

I've seen what thick slabs of G10 can handle and I don't see the need for fill liners. The Military doesn't even have full liners. The only logical reason to have them is to have steel to tap for clip screws.

Something interesting is it looks like the pivot screws are far larger than usual. That's most likely another upgrade to keep the pivot rigid without liners, and we don't know if there are any Lightweight style liners around the pivot. I think for the most part full liners are overkill on folding knives.
