Suggestion on how to greatly improve the Manix 2

Postby cbrstar » Sun Sep 15, 2019 10:27 pm

After finally owning 4 different versions of the Manix 2, I feel like I have a simple suggestion that would make the Manix 2 more attractive and better... :cool:
Remove all the jimping from the liners

The liner jimping some how makes the knife look more busy and less expensive. And it feels awefull! And thanks to the blade having jimping it's completely redundant.

A Manix with a nice smoothed out handle would be the best one yet IMHO. :D

I absolutely LOVE all the jimping on the manix (I own 3, which is more than any other model). Although I’m all for them making a jimping-free sprint or something if there are folks out there who want it.

Jimping on the blade is cool, but on a handle made from G10 is just silly and a hot spot.

Agreed.

It's even sillier on the vastly superior Manix XL. The grip area is essentially U shaped. Don't need any jimping to make the grip secure.

I could definitely live without all the superfluous jumping.

That's a pretty small amount of coating removed, you should be able to add some other coating and be ok. I'm pretty sure they don't even use DLC for liners so Cerakote is probably more than enough. Can't always wish for things to be what we want, gotta make due sometimes.

I'd prefer no jimping as well. Blade only.

Un-Manix the Manix2 all you want, but I like the model as offered.

Perhaps Eric will envision a Manix3 as having less jimping and a lock back.

I’ve wanted to grind the big jimping off but haven’t done it yet.

Always enjoy looking at your mod Evil D. I also prefer less jimping on the Manix 2.

OK, how did you do that, custom liners? If so, where can I find them :)

I like the jimping. I could probably live without it though. Would it lower the price point any if it were left out?

Too much effort for too little gain. One of the many reasons I prefer the DLC version is the coating makes the liner jimping not feel as sharp.

Hope there's none on the next Manix.
