CRKMNDBXE: Mnandi Folding Knife, Box Elder
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
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.

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.
