    Ahoy. A few months ago I decided to start something without knowing how deep this hole would get. I'm trying to acquire all of the RMD variants. This has lead me into discovering that there is a lot more variants than I was aware of. Below is a list of what I've discovered. Can any other Rats tell me if I'm missing something. Thank you.

    Variants I'm aware of:
    Beefmandu
    Swatmandu
    Infimandu
    Crabmandu
    Jackmandu
    Bowie
    Harpoon
    Flying Ratmandu
    Mega
    Penetrator tip- Tanto
    Half sharpened spine
    Double edged
    Ratchutemandu / chutemandu

    Yup, was just gonna say... There's infimandu (saber grind), then there is the more recent FHFG infimandu, then there's the Crabmandu, which is the CS version of FHFG infimandu.

    I refer to the saber grind Infi RMD as Infidu. The FHFG as Infimandu. That Infidu sure is beautiful!

    Ratmandeux - convex, satin, top guard and slightly longer blade

    There was a 300 run of RMD LE which was satin with black paper micarta

    SOS - Son of Swatmandu scaled down

    And a few (kinda custom order) drop point RMDs

    I also have a RMD Proto, which is dame as standard RMD (Steel, handle size, etc.), but with a longer ~6” blade.

    Son of swat isn't really a scaled down swatmandu, regardless of the name; but, if memory serves, it's pretty much a mini RMD.

    Just before my phone died, I looked up the swatmandu - it was closer to the son of swat than I remembered. Maybe I was thinking of something else, or saw a custom version with more features than the fuller that I disliked.

    I have a RMD LE and am pretty sure they're black g-10?

    Is anyone else excited to get their mega ratmandus shipped? I bought two rat wardens and a grab bag to ease the anticipation. Lol.
