The Mnandi is a great EDC. Where do I begin? Perfect F&F, insnanely close tolerances,beautiful looking,very tough for a knife it's size, top notch materials,very pocket friendly,very light and pocket friendly weighing in around 1.5oz, the nicest looking pocket clip I've ever seen, very easy to maintain and comes with a tool to take it apart, pivot bushing eliminates the need for locktite or pivot adjustment after reassembly, smooth action,backed by CRK CS which is one of the best and if bought on the exhanges on the different knife forum they can be found pretty cheap.
Now the cons... I would prefer a harder HT that 58-59 of S30V for a gentleman's folder or any folder for that matter and while they can somewhat refurb it like a Sebenza they can't reblast the back of the handles like they can the Sebenza's Ti slabs so if the sandblast texture scratches of it stays off. The Damascus blades do have much better performance IMO at $300 some may not have or want that option.
To sum it up even with it's slight drawbacks IMO it's the ultimate gentleman's folder combining toughness with elegance and percision. Another knife that exudes CRK quality.
