Thin stainless 3/32″ CPM-154 makes this Osprey Knife & Tool Mamushi a great, lightweight cutter for any environment. Skillful tapering of the tang is sandwiched between presentation grade Bastogne Walnut, black G10 liners and white G10 accents. A large 1/4″ carbon fiber pin and lanyard tube sits nicely into the walnut handle. Step up your EDC fixed blade.
The Osprey Knife & Tool Mamushi has been a long standing model in Georgia based knifemaker Christopher Linton’s lineup. The pattern has been a regular in Osprey knife sales over the years, and a model that does not stick around available for very long. Its popularity, we think, is due to its design being primarily an everyday EDC style of knife.
We all gravitate towards and purchase knives for different reasons, but the simplest inherent function of any edged tool is use. While many knives never realize this function, the Mamushi is one knife design that looks amazing whether it sits in a knife display or is hanging out 12′ up a ladder scraping window glazing. Chris builds knives based around a general philosophy of use, while factoring in the ever changing environments the end user may experience in their daily routines.
The Mamushi shows this dual purpose as a general EDC blade, but also a very capable knife for light woods use or rural EDC. Subtleties of a small defensive blade are present in the design and like many Osprey models much thought has been placed into the handle for a secure grip.
