CRKMNDBXE : Mnandi with Box Elder Wood Scales
Chris Reeve Knives
 
The Mnandi combines the traditional high quality performance you have come to expect from Chris Reeve Knives with the elegant qualities of a fine straight grain wood or bone to produce a stylish yet functional gentleman's folding pocketknife. This compact accessory is also appealing to the ladies. The Mnandi, pronounce mm-nun-dee, is accurately named from the Zulu word meaning very nice.
This elegant piece of art is designed with titanium handles which are inlayed with Box Elder wood on the front and back. The durable S35VN blade is machined with an enlarged thumb/nail recess for easy opening one or two handed. The knife is very light weight, only 1.25 ounces. Its handle length is 3.6 inches, blade length, 2.75 inches and overall width, .4 inches. The pivot pin assembly is titanium and other assembly screws and pins are stainless steel.

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”.

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

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.

Pros: Overall Quality, Lock Type, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Handle Material, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness, Weight, Sheath, Handle Feel, Pocket Clip
Cons: None
Mnandi
Regardless of handle material i.e. Mammoth Ivory Bark or Bocote wood inlay, the only difference is the handle material. I own Mnandi's in Bocote, Tamboti wood, and two in Mammoth Ivory Bark, and with the exception of inlay material the build and design quality are equal. Those with a smaller budget do not need to feel they are getting a lesser product if they get the standard woods... the build quality is the same for all Mnandi folders. This is one of the finest pocket knives ever made.
