Thanks, Gary. The Mnandi is in Tamboti (whatever that is) a kind gift from my pal Dopic1 , and yes, I rehandled the little Western States penknife with recycled piano key veneers. It's a fancy Friday!
That's a nice upgrade for that sweet old penknife!
To be honest it took a little getting used to but once you got it down it’s a really awesome and satisfying front flipper. The only downside to this design is the bolster lock in which if you’re not careful your finger will get stuck between the carbon fiber and the titanium when disengaging the lock bar.Those Pena Kick Starts are really nice. I don't have one but the first pictures I saw really freaked me out. I was like "Hey, where did the flipper tab go"? Then I watched a video and the design is very innovative. Great blade shape too.
