Ramon Chaves Knives Megalodon 325

If you want an overbuilt tactical folder then you have come to the right page. Ramon Chavez is a name you have probably heard many times over the last year. That is because he and his company Chaves American Made Knives has caught the eye of knife enthusiasts all over the world. So when he decided to hook up with Jason B Stout of JB Stout Knives in Martin, Tennessee it was magic from the start. A  mid-tech folder that has beautiful clean lines and a sturdy hard use feel.

JB Stout has designed a great looking folder with great ergonomics and Ramon has overbuilt this knife to make it reliable, tough yet custom in appearance.

The Chaves Stout 325 comes with hybrid tanto/drop point blade that measures 3.25" and screams BMF!  The CPM S35VN stainless steel stonewash finish blade has rugged good looks and a razor sharp edge with durability and corrosion resistance you have come to expect from Crucible Steel.

The fuller groove runs the length of the blade for a JB Stout opening greatness but also has a thumb slot if that is your cup of tea. The blade runs on cages bearings and opens smooth as butter. The blade features the Chaves American Made with skeleton key logo and JB Stout underneath. For those worried about non flipper opening, never fear. If you use your middle finger to hook the thumb window, that blade will open as fast as any flipper!

The Chaves 325 Megalodon has 2 full titanium slabs that make up the handle to house that wicked blade. Made from 2 .15" thick chunks of 6Al-4V Titanium, the Megalodon has chamfered edges and a very prominent stonewash finish. The milled titanium pocket clip flows seamlessly with the frame of the knife. Titanium barrel spacers keep the handle separated and will be in customized anodized colors.

I absolutely love the feel of this folder and even with a custom look and price tag, I would carry this knife into the worst places on earth and never blink an eye. There will be several handle and hardware/pocket clip anodized combinations coming so keep your eye out for those.
