    My first CRK was a Box Elder Burl Mnandi...now I have 40 Mnandis, 20 non Mnandi folders and 10 fixed blades...it is an obsession.

    Just got this in the mail today: My first Mnandi and my second CRK. I love the matching Box Elder Burl.
    It somehow feels delicate and tough at the same time.

    So... I received my first mnandi today. (2015 mnandi with mammoth inlays purchased from LW)

    Overall impressions are the beauty of the scales (I love the shape), and the appearance of the knife both opened and closed are amazing. Also, it should be noted that I removed the clip and added the screw in order to show both scales. I was happy I did that because the clip hid some really attractive grains.

    One thing about the knife is my having to adjust to it's truly small size and light weight. One handed opening and closing is easy enough even though it's a new nail design. It's so different from my other CRKs (small mammoth, box elder, insingo, and plain Ti-lock), but it's also unique and new. Overall, it's exactly what you would expect quality and design wise from CRK.

    I just wanted to add some thoughts from a person who never handled a mnandi.

    Happy hunting friends.
