Aptly named the Mnandi, which translated from the Zulu language means "very nice," the elegant and refined Mnandi builds upon the already impressive legacy of Chris Reeve Knives.
The Mnandi is the among the smallest and slimmest in the Chris Reeve Knives line-up with its gorgeous 2.75" Raindrop Damascus blade finished with a fine hollow grind. The solid 6AL4V titanium handles come inlaid with the highest quality Spalted Beech, which occurs from a loss of pigmentation, resulting in variations of warm browns and creams and marbled black or brown lines. And fans of the Sebenza (by which all titanium folders are benchmarked against) will be familiar with the Mnandi's integral lock which is bank-vault solid and reliable to a fault.
In a nutshell, the Mnandi is the perfect balance of real-world functionality and refined elegance. Equally adept in the office or in the outdoors, the Mnandi can do it all with a poetic style and graceful elegance. If you're after a sleek and compact USA-made folder that boasts one of the most illustrious track-record of excellence, you can do no better than the "very nice" Mnandi.
