Wow, wow and wow!
My third Manix 2; have had the plain and serrated steel versions since their release. I have had a few knifes for a long time (well, according to my wife, it is w..a..a..a..y more than a few, but nevertheless), including some quite expensive custom-made ones, but for some unknown to me reason, after I bought the steel versions, I practically never reach for the other ones (except, probably, for Spyderco Police when I need a longer blade). They are unbelievable - heavy but well-balanced, razor-sharp but not losing the edge, pleasant to hold, easy to clean, enjoyable to use, exciting to look at. Very easy to open and close with one hand (need to practice a bit, though). Great job, Spyderco!
