Minor spotting that is not much more than LC200N experienced in similar circumstances.

    The Manix2 LW in S110V is a great way to go, too, and they are available right now.

    I carried a Native 3 LW for about 10 years, them the Manix 2 replaced it. The 2 LW offers the cutting performance of the Manix 2 and most of the strength, but considerably less weight- and it won't eat pants. I had an original translucent on my last deployment. Kept a good edge, and resharpened in seconds.

    One of the things that I like about the LW besides the lightness is the wire clip.I find it has the right pocket retention.Not too tight or too loose but just right.

    I love my blue LW Manix in CTS BD1. It’s very smooth and incredibly light. I use and enjoy it more than my G10 s110v versions.

    When it was 58 bucks it was a no-brainer purchase.
