I think a back lock is more attainable.

If it was a lightweight back lock, I’d like it.

That would be my #1 choice, but I'd be okay with a CBBL LW.

I'd prefer the CBBL if we are voting! :D I wonder if it is more expensive for Spyderco to create a new FRN mold for a backlock, or research how to make the CBBL mechanism salt-worthy? :confused:

I'd love to see the industry move away from back locks all together really and I think we see that happening more and more now. Not to many knife companies left that even use them anymore. They're just not appealing to me personally. I know some people like them. Although I can't understand for the life of me why. When there are so many other locks much more easy to manipulate that are also plenty strong.
I'm a die hard lockback guy.

SAFETY is why. I have never had a lockback come open on me when I didn't want it to. I have had liner locks, compression locks, framelocks and an axis lock come open when they were in my pocket, waistband or hiking pack. I care a lot more about not getting stabbed when reaching into my pocket than I do any other benefit of a certain lock type.

I've never found them difficult to operate with either hand. I've never needed to use two hands to open or close any Spyderco lockback or Cold Steel Tri-Ad lock. I'm less concerned with raw strength of a lock as I am safety.

I wish more companies used them.
Dang that sucks my man. I hate to hear that. I dont own any lockbacks but they actually seem less safe to use to me. Because your hand is wrapped around the entire handle when you disengage the lock. So the blade can fall onto your fingers. This actually happened to me twice when I bought a chapparal and closed it one handed. Almost sliced the tip of my pinkie off Haha. But you know everyone is different and we all have our preferences. I carry 2 knives daily of varying models and manufacturers with different locks and none have ever opened in my pocket. Atleast not yet. Hopefully they never will. I guess we should all just be glad spyderco offers so many knives with so many different mechanisms. It's a nice variety. Still hoping for that CBBl native or CL native though.

Please make this knife even if it’s just Lc200n blade steel and normal LW I’d be happy. The LW manix is the best. And LC200N is excellent. I have hyper hydrosis so I sweat a ton and even m390 will start to “patina” after just one hour in my pocket

I made a thread asking for this a few weeks ago. It would basically be an insta buy for me

I still think this would be amazing with translucent yellow scales. I’m assuming the spring is the main hang up for making it a salt, but then I realized that the Autonomy knives have coil springs in them and they are considered salts, so there’s at least already spring material out there that can achieve their level of corrosion resistance.

the tusk also has a ball bearing lock with a spring and a ceramic ball for the marlin spike.

Absolutely. I'm not a huge fan of BD1 or S110V; however, LC200N would be perfect for me.

This would be legit. This knife would handle way different from the lc200n Caribbean. (In addition to looking better) I love the native in lc200n but sometimes a bigger blade would be so nice. Would definitely buy this.

Sure, I'll buy one(eventually — my wallet needs a break).

But please, PLEASE phase out the pinned construction of the LW platform. Give us some appropriately sized screws so we can take the knife apart as we please!

For the purpose this knife would be built for, I have no problems with pinned construction. I don’t have a problem with pinned construction on my current BD1N LW. But then again I don’t take my knives apart. I just put loctite on my tasman 2 pivot cuz it came loose after 2-3 days of carrying it.

Different strokes...

I think the BD1N is a real upgrade on this knife. I've owned the BD1 version pretty much forever (multiples actually) as well as almost every other variant. I bought the BD1N so I could get a good comparison on a platform I'm already familiar with, and it's definitely holding an edge much better than the BD1. It's no S110v, but it's pretty much in the same league with S30v. I wish I had a VG-10 Manix to compare it with.

Sure different strokes. But I have a feeling spyderco would've sold a LOT more Maxamet manix 2's if they would've used screw construction. Even the native LW got screws.

I really don't mind pinned construction in an inexpensive knife, like a byrd or something. At LEAST under $50.... After a year's worth of work, if it's not holding up you can pretty much just get another one. But when were talking $150ish, I kinda tend to keep the knife maintained as best I can. I may even want to modify the scales to make the grip better. And if a pin somehow got loose, I'd have to send a knife in to spyderco for the very first time instead of tightening a screw.

I'm curious as to how many people strongly desire screw construction. I know there are people on both sides and some that don't care, someone should make a poll so Sal has an idea. And I'd be curious as to WHY they preferred what they prefer.

I think Sal once asked for input for a knife/knife version if anything was possible. That was before LC200N was introduced to the lineup. I then thought of a Manic LW Salt but didn't post it, because I thought Salt meant it needs to be manufactured in Japan. So I narrowed my own mind instead of thinking outside the box.

I would really enjoy a Manix Salt with Backlock.

Greetings.

100% agree. i’m not spending that much on a knife i can’t care for properly.

I learned about the upgrade to BD1N a few days after I posted this comment. The user testimonials that I've read have me excited to try it. The translucent blue Manix 2 has received the upgrade, but it doesn't appear that the black/black version has yet. Once it does, I'd like to buy it.

I would be interested in a Manix 2 with LC200N, but I would prefer a G10 model with the CBBL.
