New for 2013, the Manix2 Lightweight is now available with a black FRCP handle. It provides all the same features and functionality of the award-winning translucent blue version, but in basic black. The Manix2 lightweight features a revolutionary handle molded from translucent blue FRCP (fiberglass reinforced co-polymer). This material is incredibly tough and lightweight and allows this full-sized knife to weigh in at less than three ounces. The Ball Bearing Lock mechanism is supported by a precision-machined steel insert in the handle and the CTS BD1 blade features a full-flat grind for superior cutting performance. Fully ambidextrous, this knife also boasts a reversible wire clip that supports left or right-side tip-up carry.
