Protect with purpose. Designed by a special ops veteran, the Xan™ (z-ann) tactically-inspired everyday carry folding knife is your pocket-sized security system. Tactical trappings are translated seamlessly for garage and outdoor needs.
Forged By War® designer Darrin William Sirois dreamed up the Xan™ (which translates to “protector” in Greek) in his shop in Fayetteville, North Carolina, the thin design packs a high-carbon stainless steel clip point blade with a bead blast finish. The lightweight handle is built with black carbon fiber with a black G10 base on the front, and sleek stainless steel on the other. Engage the thumb stud, open it 30 degrees and OutBurst® spring assist takes over. The blade springs to life and stays steadily in place with a frame lock. When closed, the internal mechanism holds the blade securely in place. The clip offers 2 positions for tip-up or tip-down carry. A tactical titan undercover as an EDC.
About the Forged By War® Program:
In 2013, Ryan Johnson of RMJ Tactical, designer of elite, military, tactical tomahawks, approached CRKT® with the news that he had been working with a few combat veterans that had returned from war with varying degrees of post-traumatic stress (PTS). To help work through their challenges, they have been designing and forging steel into custom tools. Drawing from their experience earned in combat situations, they have been creating tools they wished they had available to them on the battlefield.
CRKT® cares deeply about our returning veterans and saw a way to give back to the community that created them. In 2016, they launched the Forged By War® program. These are mission-ready tools, designed by veterans, with a portion of the proceeds donated to the veterans' charity of choice.
