Umnumzaan (pronounced um-num-zahn) means sir, mister, or boss in Zulu and is the result of Chris Reeve Knives experience in making a framelock folder for more than 20 years. With its textured beefy titanium scales and its stonewashed, double hollow ground tanto blade, it is ready for any task.
The Umnumzaan incorporates some features from the time tested Sebenza as well as new innovations:
The ball detent not only keeps the blade closed as on many folders, but also acts as the interface for the lock up.
New oversized pivot design for maximum strength. Now streamlined to use commonly available hex tools
Lock bar tab makes it easier to unlock the knife, especially useful with gloved hands.
The thumb studs act as the stop bar and use the Hawk innovation of adding O rings to absorb the shock of hard openings.
