All from my personal collection. I'm still collecting, just moving in a different direction. ABSOLUTELY AUTHENTIC AS ARE ALL MY KNIVES... I DO NOT SUPPORT CLONES/FAKES/KNIFE INDUSTRY THEFT.Rare example of the superb craftsmanship by the late Ram Maramba of Zero Knives. Truly a wonderful guy who is missed by so many! Ram Maramba passed away on May 2, 2015, and his death was a shock to the knife collecting community. He was far too young to pass, and taken from us all too early.
What he left us are wonderful memories and his masterful creations. I had the opportunity to speak to Ram at length twice, and exchanged text messages with him on countless occasions. With each interaction, he was always polite...And had a terrific sense of humor. Ram was lighthearted and kind, and yet he was a very serious and passionate knife maker. The positive impression he left on the knife community is profound. This knife is Ram's custom Kaveh Minor (pronounced kah-vay), a Persian-style blade, with beautiful lines. Kaveh was a mythical Persian blacksmith who led an uprising against the tyrannical and ruthless foreign ruler, Zahak. This knife was made in September/October of 2014, and has a wonderful smooth action, solid lockup, easy lock release, zero blade play, and dead-centered blade. It's fast, nimble, very ergonomic, and only weighs 3.5oz. I cannot find any marks on this knife and the blade looks entirely new with original sharp edge. I will call it NEAR MINT even though I cannot find any fault with this knife. It's a superb and special piece that represents Ram's legacy so very well. Handle Material: Titanium, sculpted and contoured. The shirt in the second to last picture is not included... I was only using it as a backdrop.
