On the “business end,” the Manix 2 Back Lock features a full-flat-ground CPM-S30V stainless steel blade. Its refined, leaf-shaped profile provides a long, curved cutting edge, a sturdy, utilitarian point, and a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole for swift, positive, one-handed deployment with either hand. A textured forefinger choil at the base of the blade and a matching thumb ramp on the spine allow the use of a forward grip for enhanced control during detailed cutting tasks. This knife’s unique handle construction does not use stainless steel liners. Instead, it is built with a pair of extra-thick, fine-textured G-10 scales reinforced by a stainless steel backspacer. This reduces the knife’s overall weight while providing outstanding structural support for the knife’s highly refined back lock mechanism, which boasts both superior strength and amazing smoothness of operation. The back lock mechanism also allows the use of a four-position pocket clip that supports both tip-up and tip-down carry on both sides of the body.
