Pocket knives are very good companions because they are portable and make themselves useful in many situations, whether it be camping outside or let’s just say you’re lost in a desert island.

A tactical tomahawk, sometimes just referred to as a hawk, is an axe that was developed in North America and used by Native Americans. The traditional hawk has a straight shaft and looks a lot like a hatchet, and for centuries these were used by American Indians not just as a weapon but a general purpose utility tool and their use was later adapted by the European Colonials. Even today, hawks are used by military personnel, campers and outdoor adventurers for various operations.
Tomahawk heads today usually weigh around 10 to 20 oz, and the cutting edge rarely extends to more than four inches. As for the actual head design, it varies greatly with some rounded off while others are fitted with a spike or hammer. While modern hawks still retain the basic design, manufacturers are always looking for ways to enhance the design so they become more versatile. As a result, the modern tomahawk can be used as a fighting weapon and as a utility tool for extracting and excavating and cutting through thick objects.

At first glance, Spyderco’s Manix 2 looks like an ordinary folding knife. If you look closer you can see that Spyderco has used cutting-edge materials, like their G-10 composite grip, to lighten up the design and pack more performance into the blade itself.
While the weight and length are right in line with other mid-sized folders, the blade is longer and made of high-performance carbon steel. Even the handle has premium steel inserts beneath the composite grips. The Manix 2 blends lightweight components with heavy, durable steel to make a knife that’s perfectly balanced, razor sharp, easy to grip, and built to last. Watch video below for product full review:
The Manix 2 is 8” when opened, 4 5/8” closed, and weighs 5 ounces
High-quality carbon steel blade measures 3 3/8” making it longer than most other knives in its size category
The handle is made from G-10 composite material, backed by hardened steel inserts, and is machined with deep, textured finger rests to make it easy to hold on to
Patented Ball Bearing lock unique to Spyderco makes the action incredibly smooth
Reversible pocket clip for easy carrying on either the right or left side
The Manix 2 is Spyderco’s utility knife, and it’s got a little bit of everything. Blending the larger, heavier blade and reinforced grip liner from their ParaMilitary line with a lighter, smoother ball bearing lock, the Manix 2 is an excellent multipurpose folding knife.
The G-10 composite grips are slip resistant by themselves, but Spyderco has reinforced that with deep checkering and an ergonomic handle design. The finger rests are scalloped to provide extra holding power, so this knife is great for anyone who needs performance in slippery conditions.
Made with high-carbon steel, Manix 2’s blade holds an edge like nothing else. It sharpens up easily, resists chipping, and can be honed to a razor fine edge in a matter of minutes. The extra weight of carbon steel is balanced by handle inserts, so it maintains it sits well in your hand.
The ball bearing lock, a Spyderco innovation, has a small slide that’s operated with your thumb. While this works fine if you’re bare handed, other knives like the ParaMilitary G-10 may work slightly better if you find yourself mostly using your knife with gloves on.
Part of the tradeoff with carbon steel is maintenance. While it holds an edge far better than stainless, the blade needs to be cared for. It should be wiped dry and oiled regularly in order to keep corrosion and pitting at bay. That may make this knife a poor choice for use around the ocean, since salt water is especially hard on high carbon steels.
The Manix 2 really stands out in its role as a premium folding utility knife. It’s just as good at cutting down boxes as it is hacking branches off of firewood.
Some knifemakers build a multipurpose knife by stripping away special features and lightening up the handle as much as possible, but Spyderco arrives at the same place through a balance of technology and quality materials. If you’re looking for a knife that does a little bit of everything, the Manix 2 delivers.
