Description
CRKMNDMEB: Mnandi Folding Knife, Macassar Ebony
Chris Reeve Knives
 
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".

Semi-Custom
Semi-Custom
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.
Leather Sheath
Leather Sheath
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.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock
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.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
S35VN
S35VN
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.
Titanium Handles

Dulles, Va
Pros: Blade Sharpness, Lock Type, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Pocket Clip, Ease of Opening, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Material
Cons: None
Owned the snake wood handle for 6 years
I used it for edc at the office. The knife is an excellent slicer. The frame is compact with titanium frame and wood inlay. Both are tight ad the blade is centered and even still after 6 years of carry and use. You can't go wrong with this craftsmanship. Some may say it's small but I disagree. If you plan to use it to gut fish or chop wood, then I would recommend buying a CRK fixed blade. They are also good excellent knives. All of CRK knives maintain a great edge and they are easy to sharpen. I also own a sebenza and a mountaineer fixed balde. If you want a classy small blade that is extremely well made I would highly recommend the Mnandi. These knives are only going to go up in price. The wood inlays don't crack and the knife is solid. Lastly the company has great customer service. They recommend and will do a spa treatment on the knife every ten years for a very small price. If you don't own at least one of their knifes you are missing out.
