This upgraded model combines the ultra-lightweight construction of the award-winning Manix 2 Lightweight with a blade ground from premium Crucible CPM-S110V. This state-of-the-art powdered metallurgy steel contains high amounts of vanadium and niobium alloys that give it exceptional wear resistance and higher corrosion resistance than many other stainless steels. The full-flat-ground, leaf-shaped blade offers a superior combination of strength, low-friction cutting performance, and point utility. It also features a forefinger choil and strategically placed jimping (texturing) that enhance control during use and Spyderco's Trademark Round Hole for swift, ambidextrous one-handed opening. The handle of this knife is injection molded from tough fiberglass-reinforced nylon (FRN) and features Spyderco's distinctive Bi-Directional Texturing pattern to ensure a secure grip in all environmental conditions. A reversible wire clip provides convenient left or right-side tip-up carry and an oversized lanyard hole allows the easy attachment of fobs and lanyards. Linking the blade and handle is Spyderco's patented Ball Bearing Lock mechanism. This high-strength lock consists of a ball bearing nested within a durable textured polymer cage. When the blade is opened, a spring-loaded steel plunger drives the ball bearing forward to wedge between a ramp on the blade and an anvil in the handle's steel insert. Drawing the caged ball bearing to the rear releases the lock and allows the blade to close smoothly while keeping your fingers safely away from the sharp edge. Smooth, strong, and easily operated, the Ball Bearing Lock is also completely ambidextrous. The Manix2 CPM S110V Lightweight is an exceptionally advanced folding knife that combines light weight, durability, strength, and high-performance cutting capability into a single dynamic package.
