Chris Reeve is always looking to improve and make things even better. The Umnumzaan is another example of that effort and tradition. From the traditional Chris Reeve titanium framelock to the highly sophisticated blade finishes...this knife is all Chris Reeve. The Umnumzaan has a large pivot screw and the thrust washers support that pivot and pin. The perforated bronze washers allow for better lubrication and a smoother feel.
The thumb lug "shock absorber" design ensure a smooth closing action everytime using one of the double thumb lugs.
This Umnumzaan is a Tanto point version.

Extremely nice knife, feels great in hand.
There is no question that the Chris Reeve Umnumzaan is a beautiful made knife that will last forever. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 starts is more about my issue, perhaps, than with the knife itself. I tend to have trouble sometimes with certain frame lock knives, and this one is no exception. My fingers don’t work as well as they used to, and I tend to press too hard on the frame side so that opening the knife isn’t as easy as I think it should be. Also, the action isn’t as quick and smooth as with some knifes. I don’t know if that is unique to this model as this is the only CR I own. For anyone interested in a high quality knife that will serve you well and will be a proud addition to your collection, I encourage you to get a Chris Reeve knife.
