CRKMNA1108: Mnandi Folding Knife, Striped Platan
Chris Reeve Knives
With hand polished finishes and a handle at 3.625" long, the Mnandi is among Chris Reeve's smallest and sleekest low-profile folders. Striped Platan inlays are made from stabilized wood and profiled to fit precisely inside handle pockets. Striped Platan has high wear strength and absorbs little water, preventing swelling, shrinkage, and cracking despite humidity changes. Wood Inlays are made from natural materials, so you can expect a slight variation in color and wood grain.
A perfect combination of a CPM-S35VN blade with the strength of the Integral Lock embellished with your choice of exotic hardwoods inlaid on the front and back, comes complete with a pocket clip that you just want to show off. Without overstating itself, the Mnandi connects the bearer to the romance of simplicity while still maintaining precision quality.
Chris Reeve set out to find a more dressed up side to the traditional knife - one that could be worn as a tie pin, carried alongside pens in a shirt pocket, clipped to a pants waistband, or tucked inside a purse. The Mnandi is a chance to show sleek and elegant beauty and is built with the same precision and quality as the rest of Chris Reeve's knives, giving it the ability to accomplish tasks that may seem out of its inherent nature. Inlaid with a variety of exotic woods, the Mnandi is the perfect tool for the most dapper of gentlemen and the most elegant of ladies. At the office, the bar, or the dinner table the Mnandi is bound to function and look very nice.
The Chris Reeve Knives Mnandi frame lock folding knife continues the tradition of high quality that you have come to expect from Chris Reeve Knives. An elegant, functional gentleman's (or gentlewoman's!) pocket knife, the Mnandi – pronounced mm-nun-dee – is accurately named from the Zulu word meaning "very nice".

A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
