I’ll admit I stopped mid-sentence when I saw the Mamba for the first time. This is, to me, a very impressive bold design. I’m not sure if I have a specific cutting task for the Mamba, but I don’t care. I will own one! This was a big bold folder. The flipper barely needed a push to let the blade just fly out. The Mamba’s blade features satin finished flats and the hollow grinds were coated in TiCN if I recall correctly. This bladefinish refers to the fact that Walter Brend is famous for his polished blades. Since such a polish could not be achieved in production, the choice was made to coat the hollow grinds. The handle consists of a hefty titanium frame covered with full carbon fiber handle scales. The knife really locks in the hand, in every edge-out grip. The knife felt surprisingly light and well-balanced. It certainly was a fist full of blade. Simply awesome.
