    This is a great knife .

    Posted by John Williams on 20th Oct 2021

    I''ve used this knife under the hardest conditions camping etc and put it through a great deal of pressure . It never failed me once, and because of the way the knife opens and closes I felt completely save. I've hade a great deal of expensive knives fail at some time on me, but never this one. And at this price-it's a steal.

    Manly wasp

    Posted by Gordion Fleming on 13th Jul 2021

    Very robust feeling well built knife,was going to talk about other stuff like fit and finish,ergos and the like but lets cut(geddit)to the chase.Without doubt the sliciest,sharpest blade with the best edge retention ive ever exoerienced.Once your used to the stiff opening and stops its no problem to use.Only drawback for me is i dont get to sharpen it as much as id like.Truly amazing steel for the price,thanks HH

    Fantastic knife

    Posted by Mr. D on 25th May 2021

    Great EDC knife. Has a decent size to it so that it fits well, fully in the hand. The blade was properly sharp straight out of the box. It has great tension in the slip joint, I'd have no fear of it closing on me during proper use. And I quite like the multiple stops, gives me more assurance of not closing accidentally. For sure, it is not a one-handed open, but that is what I wanted - otherwise it may not be fully legal-carry in all countries (e.g. Belgium, I think). The pocket clip is sturdy and I prefer it to the wire style on other knives, and it sits deep in the pocket.

    Superb steel and design

    Posted by Fred on 5th Apr 2021

    Super sharp blade that continues to hold its edge even after cutting a lot of heavy cardboard. One of the best knives in my collection

    Perfect EDC

    Posted by Rich on 5th Mar 2021

    Great for everyday carry , hard to open and close I like this as it feels safe to use , rock solid lockup. Super steel for a good price, must buy !

    Excellent

    Posted by Toby on 7th Nov 2020

    Really solidly built and great value. Comfortable in the hand and safe to use with the 3 stop positions between open and closed. I was considering the UKPK but I'm glad I went for this one in the end - it looks a lot more friendly, especially in the orange colour, and has superior steel for my needs. The backsprings and scales aren't perfectly flush, and there's a slight gap between them, but these things really aren't important in a knife that's wholly utilitarian. Manly include 2 small allen keys that allow you to tighten and maintain as needed. This is, as far as I can tell, the 3rd generation version of the knife with a pin that stops the blade from contacting the flattened backspring - apparently this was an issue on some earlier models. Also, they seem to have replaced the "manly" branding on the pocket clip with a simple logo which looks a lot nicer. This was mentioned in a lot of reviews so Manly are clearly a company that listens to the feedback of its customers. The only real improvement I can think of would be to include a spare blanking plate so that the clip can be removed altogether without leaving a slight recess in the handle. I'm already thinking about buying another. Highly recommended.

    Best slicer I own

    Posted by Steve Churchill on 29th Sep 2020

    This is not the prettiest knife in my collection, but makes up for its lack of aesthetics with pure slicing ability. It is also more ergonomic than it might appear. The flared ricasso and thumb hump on the spine allow you to choke up the blade comfortably. The blade is very narrow behind the edge, and the edge's steep angle makes it a pleasure to slice with. I use it for much of my food prep these days.

    Great Value

    Posted by JT on 1st May 2020

    Feels like it's definitely built to last! Not the easiest thing to open, but the blade snaps into place with a feel of quality. Communion and customer service was excellent, and was received very quickly. The only slight negative was that I thought it would be a bit sharper. That's not to say that it's blunt, far from it. But with talk of how difficult the edge is to sharpen I'm hoping that it doesn't dull too quickly. Mine certainly isn't 'shaving sharp' like some others have suggested.

    Stunning.

    Posted by Mr Mud on 6th Nov 2019

    I do strongly prefer one hand opening knives. When I tried the Wasp, I had to get it nonetheless, because I liked it a lot. The opened knife just offers perfect proportions for my hands and the craftsmanship and materials suggest a much higher retail price. I also love how it rides in my pocket, with the deep carry clip firmly holding it in place, where I can easily reach it and also put it back. It took me a while to get used to the firm opening and closing, but once I adjusted to that, my Spyderco knifes see less and less use. The only downside I can see is that the back of the blade has rather sharp edges which is a fine thing for striking sparks, but it kind of eats away at the fabric of my pants.
