Description: Chris Reeve Knives are some of the finest semi-production knives made.
This Mnandi features a damascus blade and bog oak set into the titanium frame. This wood has been buried in a Nordic peat bog for hundreds or sometimes thousands of years. The extremely low oxygen conditions of the bog protect the wood from normal decay, while the underlying peat provides acidic conditions where iron salts and other minerals react with the tannins in the wood, gradually giving it a distinct dark brown to almost black color. The blade is made from Devin Thomas' stainless raindrop pattern damascus. The steel will have exceptional edge holding and is immediately captivating.
Both the frame and pocket clip are formed from 6Al4V titanium, keeping this knife extremely light and durable. The clip is mounted for tip up carry. The knife can be comfortably opened and closed with one hand and locks open for safety. The thumb rest is fileworked for dependable handling. The Mnandi features a strong integral locking mechanism that Chris Reeve popularized.
