FOLDING KNIFE
Spyderco Manix 2 Knife
$216.00 $149.00

Extremely capable full-sized folder that is known for it's strength and performance. Its broad blade provides exceptional cutting power. Textured index finger choil and thumb ramp allow a forward grip. Scaled G-10 handle has a unique non-slip checked texture. Blade ground with flat bevels that extend from the spine all the way to the cutting edge. This grind reduces drag during cutting and decreases overall weight. Patented compressive lock.

This user’s knife also includes Flytanium Scales.

“I have owned and used this knife every day for the last several months and it is hands down the best knife in my collection. It comes down to durability. The leaf blade design has support in the right places and the CPM S30V steel keeps a razor sharp edge better than most of the other blades I have. I cut boxes, drywall, tape and aluminum foil with it and I can still shave with it. I refuse to loan it out because I’m afraid I might not get it back.”

“The art on this coin is phenomenal. Seller went above and beyond and sent it in its own plastic proof case with a little plastic stand. I’ve never had a coin sent with its own little stand before. Very cool.”

“I hate picking up a pen to note something on a sticky note and the pen won’t write. With the Space Pen I don’t have to even think about it any longer. It writes each time, every time. No questions!”

“This is my first mechanical automatic watch and my first Orient. And so far, after having it for just three days, I’m loving it! The blue dial gives a dressy, exquisite look to a ‘utilitarian’ watch. I’ve tested its accuracy via the NIST Atomic clock and after 24 or so hours it’s running about 12-13 seconds fast – which is within the factory advertised specs. I’m not a NASA rocket scientist so that’s not an issue. The luminosity is very very good. Lasts a nice 7-8 hours and is easily readable in the dark/at night once your eyes adjust.”

“WOW! The size, ergonomics, quality of materials and weight was perfect. The blade and tools are awesome and pretty much everything you would use routinely every day. If you are looking for an everyday knife, this is your knife.”
