Why no wire clip on this model?

So far, only the Manix 2 Lightweight models have had wire clips. Manix 2 models with g10 or carbon fiber do not have a wire clip.

Thank you much, James! :p
I just sent you an email . . . .
No problem Steve! This one snuck up on me as I wasn't really watching the forums much during recovery. Emailed you back!

I came here seeing if anyone knew a hypothetical release time for these so I appreciate the link!
I sold the smooth G10 PM2 I previously ordered from KC and regretted as soon as I dropped it off. The smooth G10 doesn't tear apart my jean pockets like peel ply does and I'm not looking to spend $300 on the shaman so this is perfect for me. I work as a Forester and I find that Cruwear doesn't rust near as easily as other tool steels in the woods.
I agree about the rust. Cruwear and Rex 45 have both surprised me on corrosion resistance, At least out west.

All this talk about smooth G10 and Cruwear wore me down. I placed my order.

I ordered as well. I had been carrying my Para 3 in smooth G10 today, and it got me thinking wether or not this was available to purchase yet. Can’t pass up Cruwear for only $130, and I happen to really like the smooth G10. I just wish it was all black. I’m in the process of making my Para 3 hardware black(early stages :o ) , and it’s looking excellent with the smooth G10

Mine just arrived and it's just as one would expect, perfection! This is my first Manix 2 and I was surprised by how buttery smooth the action is; can do the spydy-flick easily. I like the smooth G10 scales on the Manix 2 more than I did on the PM2.
:spyder: CPM-Cruwear is the ideal knife steel. You may not like it, but this is what peak performance is made of.

Fast shipping and great service from KC. The smooth G10 on the Para 3 has a bit more texture then the Manix 2 and Paramilitary 2. Now on with the Military :D

This forum is a bad influence! :o Had both of these guys in the mailbox when I got home today... :D

This is my first Manix 2 and I think the smooth G10 feels pretty good on this platform. Admittedly I have only had it out of the box for a few mins but with all the jimping on the liners it feels secure in my hand.

Did anyone order multiples of this?

I ordered two, and KC shipped one and marked the other one as "back ordered". Is that there way of saying there is a limit of 1 per customer?

I ordered more than one and both were shipped. They seem to get several batches of their exclusives at 1-2 week intervals, so the second one will be along in a week or two.

Would love to see a Cruwear FRN LW Manix 2 with deep carry wire clip in the future.

Received mine today, ordered friday afternoon, was shipped monday. I have the PM2 in Cruwear/smooth g10 and I am a fan of the handle material, maybe its just me but i feel the G10 on this Manix 2 feels smoother than the PM2. (I don't have the PM2 with me to compare in hand). Anyway, great steel on a great platform, looking forward to carrying it at work tomorrow and getting it dirty.

After sitting on the fence about this knife for all of 3 days, I went to order it this past Saturday and it was already "sold out" Allowed me to order it and said it would ship in 5-7 days. I honestly didn't expect it sell out so quickly...hoping they get more in!

The Manix is truly matte black. It has virtually no reflectiveness. Here's the comparison of the old smooth Native 5 to the new smooth Manix. I angled the shot to try to highlight the difference in reflectiveness at their most reflective in indirect sunlight:
