Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! I have owned 6 mnandi over the years, but currently don't have any as they are all with fellow forum members. All the ones I had were the older style. I could open them easily with one hand and the S30V always held a nice edge, even the damascus mnandi I had was the older style as well. I have heard the newer version of the mnandi, you cant open it with one hand....?? I see the pivot bushing has changed as well as the clip. On the older versions, you could remove the clip, doesnt look like you can on the new style. I am not looking to remove it, just an observation. I will say I liked the look of the older pivot bushing, but that would not stop me from getting the new style if I end up thinking its better. Since I have not had any for awhile, I would like to know what you guys and gals think about the older version of the mnandi vs the newer version. Other than the pivot bushing and the clip, are there any other variances I am missing. The nail nick looks slightly different, perhaps chamfered a tad, but with lighting, I know its tough to tell. Looking forward to what you have to say. Thanks in Advance.
