Overview

Ram Maramba set up behind me at Blade show for 6-7 years, so we basically sat or stood next to each other the whole time at the show. I saw this design of his called the "Flywheel" and I thought it was a pretty cool little knife, so I volentered to help him get it into production with a knife company. He sent me the CAD file sortly before he passed away in 2015. After that the file sat on my computer until earlier this year. Ken Brock had shared that little show space with us for those years too and Ken and I where talking about a small fixed blade like this and the Flywheel popped back into my mind. We talked it over and Ken said that he thought he could get a hold of Ram's Mother, and we could get permission to make it from her. And that is what we did, we all got on a Zoom call and had a very fun conversation about Ram and what we wanted to do, and we explained that we where going to pay her for using Ram's design.

I know that me, personally, I would love it if someone used my work after I was gone to help my family in some way. I have no doubt that Ram would be happy to see us do the same.

Not only that, but these knives are cool in their own right! Ken has some blanks and I have some and we are going to grind them and sell them, each on our own.

They are made in S30V and have a kydex sheath included.

They are 5/32 thick and just under 6 inches over all length

 

Excellent condition.

About the Maker

George, Les
George, Les

I began making knives in 1992 and have been fortunate enough to have worked with and learned from some of the best knife makers in the world. The maker most responsible for my progression is Stan Fujisaka of Kaneohe, Hawaii. I had been making knives for several years before I met Stan, but he opened the door to a new level of knife making for me and shared his considerable knowledge with me freely. I will continue to refine my craft and to build on all that I have learned so far. I enlisted in the United States Marine Corps in 1997 and spent over 10 years in its service. I served as a heavy equipment mechanic, an Embassy Guard in foreign lands and a Senior Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technician in many of the world's garden spots. I have trained in Explosive Dynamic Entry, Advanced Access and Disablement, Improvised Explosives and Devices, Weapons of Mass Destruction, Close Quarters Combat and many other technical and tactical skills. I have deployed to, lived and worked in Laos, Thailand, North and South Korea, Peru, Mozambique, South Africa, Iraq and many other places in between. Since my departure from the Marines I have worked as an Unexploded Ordnance Technician clearing unexploded munitions, from projectiles to land mines from old training areas. As an EOD Team leader in Iraq, I oversaw over 300 EOD responses and over 100 Improvised Explosive Devices where rendered safe. All of these experiences have given me a unique view of how I think knives and tools should be designed, made and used. I look forward to many new things during this new phase in my career. There is a lot of work left for me to do to get ready for more work to come.
