The Chris Reeve Umnumzaan Tanto blade tactical folding knife, nicknamed the Zaan, is ideal for hunters, service members, and outdoorsmen. In Zulu the word umnumzaan means 'the boss'.

This handy knife has a tanto blade shape with hollow grinds that are razor-sharp. While closed, the knife is 4.77 inches long. The blade itself measures 3.675 inches and is made out of stonewashed stainless S35-VN steel. On the Rockwell hardness scale, the steel used in this knife is a HRC 59-60. This American-made steel has superior edge retention and is tough as well, resulting in fewer instances of chipping. The top of the blade spine has a thumb rest with machined jimping that provides the user with a solid grip.

The Umnumzaan folding knife has high pivot strength. The knife has a lockbar stabilizer mechanism, with the CRK logo machined on the face, that prevents over-extension of the framelock bar. The knife also features a ceramic lock bar interface for increased lock life over a standard titanium frame lock. The ceramic ball is much harder than titanium and allows for much less wear and lock movement over a lifetime of use. The ceramic ball also serves as a detent mechanism to keep the knife in the closed position. It's solid mechanism that increases the safety and lifetime of carrying this knife. The frame lock bar is finished nicely with a machined grove that allows for increased purchase on the lock bar when closing with your thumb.

The handle of the knife is made out of aerospace-grade titanium, which is a lightweight material. In comparison to other knives of a similar size, this innovative knife is an extremely reasonable weight, weighing in at 5 oz. When closed the knife has a an extension of the blade that functions as a glass breaker.

With permission, Chris Reeve designed this tactical folding knife utilizing Grant and Gavin Hawk's shock absorber. The shock absorber helps extend the knife's life as well as making it more comfortable to use.

Another reason the Chris Reeve Umnumzaan Tanto tactical folding knife lasts longer is it has perforated phosphor bronze washers that decrease friction and hold onto lubrication longer. The knife is completed with a black cord lanyard attached to a rear spacer on the knife.

5  Awesome Knife, Chris Reeve Umnumzaan Tanto Tactical Folding Knife
Posted By: - verified customer

Saw this knife come up in an email from Knife Art at the beginning of December 2016. As soon as I saw the CRK Umnumzaan with its cool style I knew I wanted it. I don't know why I hadn't seen the knife before. I am not usually into tanto sytle blades but this one was absolute class and style. As usual, Knife Art shipped my order right out and I received in a few days. The fit/finish, blade style,blade grind, and overall operation of this knife is excellent. Just can't get over how well the blade was executed in terms of the stunning look, blade machining, grind, and exreme sharpness. Hard to tell this knife from a custom build.
