This weekend USPS delivered my Manix 2 LW in CTS-BD1. I have to say, I am impressed. Fit and finish on mine is just about perfect. Great lockup, perfectly centered blade, and the best production edge I have ever received. On top of that, the ergos on this knife are amazing. It just "fits" my hand perfectly and is very comfortable in use. I used the knife all afternoon for some yard work and to break down some boxes for the trash and I was able to strop the edge back to perfect in about 10 minutes. The finish on the blade is very nice. Its almost like a light stonewash finish and TBH I wish the rest of the LW lineup including the Delicas and Enduras had this finish. It was very easy to clean and didn't scratch up at all. In contrast, I find the satin finish on the VG-10 blades picks up scratches very easily and the blade goes from looking "new" to "user" after only a few uses. I can't recommend this knife highly enough and Spyderco is really on their game. A knife with this level of thoughtful design, fit and finish, and materials would have been unheard of at this price point 10 years ago; especially if it was made in the USA. Have a good week!
