Description: Chris Reeve Knives are some of the finest semi-production knives made. This Mnandi features ancient wooly mammoth ivory bark scales. Sadly, mammoth ivory scales are now a thing of the past for Chris Reeve Knives. Though they stopped taking orders for mammoth ivory several years ago, CRK has been continuing to complete pre-existing orders. Regretfully, they have just told us that they do not plan to make any more mammoth ivory knives.
This presentation grade mammoth ivory is from the very outside of the tusk and is called the bark. Mammoth ivory bark has always been rare for CRK. The scales combine caramel and burnt cream tones with small sections of blue/green veins. These colors result from mineralization across thousands of years.
The blade is made from Devin Thomas' stainless Ladder 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.
