Chris Reeve's legacy of elegant and reliable knives continues with the Mnandi. The aptly named Mnandi, which translated from the Zulu language means "very nice", is an astounding piece of craftsmanship that speaks to the high standards of quality that Chris Reeve products have lived up to again and again over the years. Whether you are looking to put this to use in your everyday life or are simply and admirer of beautiful craftsmanship, the Mnandi is just the knife for you.
The Mnandi balances an all-business approach to design with tasteful aesthetic sensibility. With its sleek 2.75" CPM S35VN Stainless Steel blade finished with a fine hollow grind, the Mnandi is ready to tackle any task you might need it for with style. Its high-quality 6Al4V Titanium handle is built to last and has hand satin finished flats. The Spalted Beech Mnandi is made from the finest quality titanium alloy, the Mnandi's integral lock is sure to endure through heavy use, exposure to the elements and heavy use. The top shelf Spalted Beech wood inlay adds to the aesthetic appeal of the knife even further, and everyday carry aficionados are sure to appreciate the balance between appearance and functionality.
Measuring in at a mere 3.25" folded and 1.5 oz., this knife is compact, even for a folding knife. With so much toughness, reliability, and good looks built into it, the Chris Reeve Mnandi is a difficult one to pass up. Equipped with a pocket clip machined from the same 6Al4V Titanium used in the handle, your Spalted Beech Mnandi will always be within arms' reach when you need it most.
It's hard to go wrong with Chris Reeve knives, and if you're in the market for a sleek, compact folding knife, you'll be hard-pressed to do better than the Mnandi. Chris Reeve Knives are proudly made in Bosie, Idaho U.S.A.
Chris Reeve is a perfectionist and it shows in all of his knives. This is a great gentleman's every day carry knife for those who can afford it. I love the deep carry placement of the clip. I am so used to having a thumb stud it has taken me a few days to learn how to open it with one hand.
Saw the knife. Liked the knife. Bought the knife. Rodney chose the knife (Thank You again). And sent it to me. I received it in several days from the purchase date. Love my knife. Best Regards.

What can I say? The Mnandi is the king of gentleman's folders and the Snakewood version adds an incredibly beautiful touch. Of course, this knife will do whatever you ask of it as well as anything in it's size range. And, to top it all off, the fit and finish is amazing. Truly one of the best values to be had anywhere.
I spoke to Larry regarding the particular type of snakewood I liked and he was kind enough to check out a knife of my preference. I'm sure they are all great, but he did go to the trouble of doing it for me and I appreciated it. The knife arrived on time and is a little stunner. I was torn between the small Sebenza and this, but in reality, because I live in NJ and travel to places where knife laws can be vague at best, this seems to be a good solution. The one down side of the knife is the fact that it is not a one handed opener. In the case of a gents knife however, and wishing to avoid contest with the law, I think it's actually good that it is not regarded as a tactical design in this way. I don't see how anybody could be disappointed with this knife and it's of a quality that you would want to pass on to a son. The choice of small leather holder or the clip is great and the knife fits in the pocket nicely.

A beautiful little jewel of a folding knife. Love the the snakewood scales. The knife is perfect in my opinion. It is clear that this is a precision piece. Fit and finish in all areas are excellent. Very smooth opening and closing. The RIL (Reeve integral lock) works perfectly. Arrived in a nicely packaged box which included the usual papers (birthday card, etc.), an Allen wrench, grease, a leather pouch type sheath, and cleaning cloth. As usual, KnifeArt delivered very quickly. Thank you. Mike
