MLCRAVEN35DAM: Custom Damascus Raven 3.5 Flipper
Melvin Lozada Custom Knives
Melvin Lozada is one talented custom knifemaker. He's a big, broad dude with a no-nonsense personality and his knives definitely reflect this. They are some of the most overbuilt, well designed and quality manufactured pieces we've come across. Melvin is just hitting his stride in the industry and we are pleased to bring some of his pieces to you. This custom Raven 3.5 flipper is something we found on Melvin's table at the 2017 BLADE Show.
The Raven is a stout design with total tactical function in mind and a little flair thrown in. Melvin's paired a gorgeous recurve tanto blade shape with a beefy yet beautiful handle to create a ultra-stylish tactical folding knife. The 3.375" compound ground blade is 0.218" thick, made from Chad Nichols XHP Core Damascus with a perfectly acid etched finish. It rides on caged bearings and the large flipper tang makes for easy, fast flipping action. The handle is made from marble carbon fiber over bronze anodized titanium frames with a gear milled titanium backspacer. It features a lanyard hole, jimped thumb ramp, rainbow anodized titanium pocket clip, and internal stop pin. It's quite a knife from Melvin and one you can see and feel the quality through and through. The inside of the backspacer is signed by the maker and this beauty was handmade in the Florida.
