I've been drooling over the Mnandi for about six months and finally pulled the trigger on one. I was always drawn to the snake wood version and waited for just the right pattern to hit the market. It was pure luck that it came along just in time for Christmas. I actually received it in early December (thanks, Derrick!) but had barely enough willpower to put it aside until Christmas evening when I could sneak off to my man-cave and savor the process of opening and exploring it. Man, I'm loving this beauty! I may have just found the ideal knife for my particular needs. This is my second CRK and by coincidence also marks the 100th knife of my total collection. I own a large 21 and carry it almost constantly. The Mnandi has found a home in the supplied slip case in my LFP.
