SmallFly 2 almost a direct EDC replacement for a Manix 2 LW??

The SmallFly 2 is definitely the knife I am most excited about in the most recent reveal. I like the utilitarian blade, as I wanted a balisong I can EDC. That got me looking at the specs of my current EDC, a Manix 2 LW, and I realized it is a pretty direct competitor in many of its specs. Here's some of them, SmallFly shortened to SF, Manix to M...
Blade length:
M - 3.37"
SF - 3.37"

Edge length:
M - 2.88"
SF - 3.00"

Blade thickness:
M - 0.125"
SF - 0.125"

Closed length:
M - 4.66"
SF - 4.5"

Overall length:
M - 8.03"
SF - 7.60"

M - 3 oz
SF - 3.3 oz

So based on the specs, the SmallFly has the same exact blade length, but packs more edge length, all the while keeping a smaller overall package and is only 0.3 oz more than a Manix 2 LW, and both have a wire clip. This makes me really excited to get my hands on a SmallFly 2!

But in reality, there is nothing quite like a gun. And it has been said, "The only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun".

Does that complexity decrease the simplicity? Not at all.

Maybe if it got more steel options and was less expensive. The manix is one of the most versatile models in the lineup and I doubt this bali will steal any of it's spotlight.

I do dig the smallfly 2 though. I await steel options :p
I require more lc200n and thinner grinds

Current collection: Watu, Spydiechef, Native G10 salt, Waterway, K390 Ladybug, Caribbean
