    This brand new Mnandi just came in.

    I have an issue though, the action is gritty on close... I suspect it is the detent track not worn in yet, because when I disengage the lock bar it goes away. Anyone have this similar problem?

    Amazing! I think I would be more keen on Damascus blades if they still looked like yours.

    No pics but I still carry my snake wood Mnandi I purchased in 2011. I own the small sebenza, rockstead Higo, swiss army, buck, and hinderer xm-18 from 2005, but I still carry the Mnandi. Its action is extra smooth, I can't stop holding the wood handle and the blade is easy to keep sharp. Its small, but I can't help but like carrying it.

    Thought the Mnandi folks might get a kick out of this...Probbie the first mnandi photographed onsite at the NASDAQ stock exchange.

    What? Only three zebras, three snakeskins, countless mammoths -- you call that a collection? It's barely a sampling.

    (Translation: wow! That's unbelievable.)
