The Mnandi was created as a more refined folder that depleted any aggressive or tactical undertones with the word "knife" and replaced it with exotic inlays that are impressively appealing. Meaning "very nice" in the Zulu language, the Mnandi can even be worn as a tie bar due to its lightweight design but can perform tasks with the best of them. Each model features an Integral Lock® frame lock design that was built to handle a lifetime of use and abuse and each premium stainless steel blade is deployed with dual recessed thumbnail grooves. In 2018, Chris Reeve Knives introduced us to a new inlay called striped platan which are made from natural stabilized wood and offer high wear resistance and strength. This model boasts a titanium handle complete with dual striped platan wood inlays, a drop point style blade in a satin finish and the reversible titanium pocket clip is designed for tip up carry only but is eligible for a left or right hand carry option. Made in the USA.
