CJRB 1910 MangroveIf you’re looking for the sleek, elegant lines of a gentleman’s folder, you’re not looking for the CJRB 1910 Mangrove. It’s a bumpy, lumpy, and beefy modern that seriously feels fantastic in hand. At $30, this budget friendly flipper is destined to be one of our favorites.

The Mangrove has a broad 3.45” D2 drop point blade with a blade thickness of 0.124”. It has a Nessmuck-style bump and a swedged spine with a slightly recessed thumb ramp. It’s a manual flipper that rides on a ceramic ball bearing pivot assembly and the action is frankly fidget worthy.

CJRB 1910 MangroveThe contoured G-10 handles have look that’s similar to chipped stone. At first, it might seem like they’d be uncomfortable. The reality is they feel fantastic in hand and provide the perfect amount of slip resistance. It’s not a slim EDC by any means. At about 0.6” handle thickness, it just feels solid and kind of like a hand massage when you use it. It’s available in four different colors – black, gray, OD green, and translucent – and each has an anodized yellow pivot collar. It’s 4.65” closed, 8.125” overall, and weighs 4.87 ounces.
