We need more Manix 2 Light Weights!

Postby animportant » Fri Sep 27, 2019 1:18 am

What's not to love?! The ergo's, the light weight, the lock. This is Spyderco's Best Knife IMO. I think we need more M2LW's - M390, Cruwear, LC200N, what do y'all think?

New BD1N blue transluscent on the way. I would love to see some new transluscent colors and steel choices.

We need a Manix XL lightweight... that's the one kind of "Manix" I'd buy... ;)
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40

Personally, I’ve never had an issue with any of my pinned spyderco knives becoming loose or anything. I understand why you say that... but I’m also not one to disassemble knives. I’ve never really had the need to do so. Also, there’s no need to loctite screws or keep tightening them if they aren’t there!

Yes! A lightweight Manix in Lc200n would be a perfect summer EDC knife. While were at it, how bout make a lightweight in dark green FRN with M390 or 204p? :D

I also think the frcp is a little slick. Wish they could make it "softer" like the seki frn. If that happened, I'd love this model. As it is, I like the one I have, but I prefer the g10 version.

This. It should be a permanent addition to regular production.

Make it a lightweight, and I am in! :D (though S30 V or BD1 N would be perfect, as long as it is lightweight...)

I'm not a huge Cruwear fan, but I'd buy that one.

I'd rather see 4v or 3v, but Cruwear kind of splits the difference between them, so I'd take it.

The XL deserves more sprints.

I want an LC200N Salt Manix LW.

Vanax, green & 204p, and K390 would be cool too!

I spoke with St Nick's Knives a couple of days ago asking about what sorts of red & black exclusives we can expect. The guy said that a Manix LW is certainly a possibility, depending on their next contract meeting with Spyderco. It wouldn't be for a long while, but I'd be down for a DLC 4V and red Manix LW.

I'd love to see a 4v Manix from St Nicks. I just hope they make enough to go around. Their recent sales have been so fast (and flipped) that lots of people are left out.

while i agree wholeheartedly, a salt version would, for me at least, remove my felt need for screws over pins. as of right now, i just don't like that i can't take the knife apart to make sure it's not rusting under the handle. if it was a salt, i wouldn't have to worry about that anymore.

honestly, i love the manix 2 lw, but would really love a manix 2 salt in g10 with liners. that would be the ultimate knife for me.

If nothing else, more handle colors like the Endura/Delica/Dragonfly! You can already get it with BD1N satin/DLC, S110V and Maxamet, what I'd really like to see is some more translucent colors for the FRCP. I would however LOVE if they came out with a salt version with an LC200N blade and a translucent yellow handle. That would be the bees knees. Also, a CQI to screw construction would be a much welcomed upgrade.

Does that complexity decrease the simplicity? Not at all.
