The Mândra is the third knife developed in the collaboration with Les Stroud and also the smallest in the collection. Being a small knife, it is surprising how good the handle fits even if you have larger hands. For medium to large hands, it is often used as a three finger grip.
A small knife is often considered to be more versatile and when it comes to the Mandra this theory proves this to be very true. The well-proportioned triple laminated stainless steel blade comes razor sharp right out of the box. Ready to be used on your next adventure.
Comes with a secure leather sheath for belt carry and accompanied with a leather lanyard.
