Spyderco: Manbug V-Toku2 Sprint Run - Blue FRN - MBBLPE
This supercharged Sprint Run edition of the Manbug Lightweight proudly features a three-layer laminate blade with a V-Toku2 tool steel core. Made with Swedish iron ore enriched with tungsten, vanadium, and chromium, V-Toku2 is a high-performance tool steel that is respected for its toughness at high hardness. To bolster its strength and provide greater corrosion resistance, the V-Toku2 core of this blade is sandwiched between outer layers of tough SUS410 stainless steel. This laminated construction is clearly visible when the full-flat-ground blade is examined closely, as the transition between the core and outer layers can be seen just above the blade's cutting edge. Nevertheless, because V-Toku2 is a true tool steel, its exposed surfaces are susceptible to corrosion and must be maintained properly.
All other features of this amazingly capable, pocket-friendly knife are consistent with the standard version of the Manbug Lightweight, including a sturdy back lock mechanism, a Trademark Round Hole in the blade for easy opening, and Bi-Directional Texturing on the handle for a secure grip. The tough fiberglass-reinforced-nylon (FRN) handle is also injection molded in the distinctive blue-gray color that signifies Spyderco's elite V-Toku2 Sprint-Run series of knives.
