Perfection
I did a lot of research on the Mnandi before purchasing. I was expecting a nice knife and to be impressed. I was blown away by the perfection quality and how light it was. It is truly a work of art. I am a collector and have many quality knives. The Mnandi is in a class all by itself.

Cons: None
Best Small Profile EDC
I use this knife for letter opening, sting cutting, box opening, and slicing fruit and dried snacks. The S30V steel used keeps an edge, as after all the use I put it through, a simple pass on both sides of the edge brought it back to an original razor edge.
