Details

Manufactured by Reate Knives and designed by Ramon Chaves, the Chaves Ultramar series offers the same functional, ergonomic designs and stout build quality as Ramon's customs in a production platform. The Liberation 229 titanium frame lock offers unparalleled strength and cutting power in a daily carry platform. This version comes with a tumbled full titanium handle and satin finished M390 Tanto blade.

Brand new, direct from Chaves Knife and Tool.

Blade: The thick M390 blade rides smooth on a ceramic bearing pivot for fast and flawless deployment via the dual thumb studs. Equipped with a two-tone satin finish the compound ground Tanto blade has a strong, flat ground point for piercing and flat surface work with a deep hollow ground primary edge for powerful slicing. The forward choil allows for optimal control in use. 

Handle: Blasted and tumbled full titanium handle slabs and partial back spacer form the handle, delivering solid heft and plenty of grip real estate. The sweeping lines, straight spine and generous index groove pair with chamfered edges for a comfortable and versatile handle. The integral frame lock is smooth and solid thanks to the hardened steel lock face insert and over travel stop.

Carries via a right hand milled titanium clip. Skull clip installed, plain clip included.

Bohler M390: Bohler M390 (analog to CPM-20CV and CTS-204P) is a premium powder metallurgy (PM) stainless steel with high level edge retention and corrosion resistance. A popular choice for high-end production and custom knives, M390 is relatively easy to sharpen, with toughness on par with 440C/154CM.
