Following the explosive popularity of his custom Redencion model, Ramon Chaves wanted to build a more affordable version that stayed true to its heritage. The Chaves American Made Redencion 228 folder is just that; an overbuilt framelock built with premium materials which doesn't sacrifice any of the quality Chaves Knives are known for. If you're searching for a well-made, beefy folder, this is it. These knives are brand new, direct from Chaves American Made knives.
The Blade: The blade of the 228 is made from CPM-35VN with a blasted and tumbled finish. It deploys via dual stainless thumb studs and rides on a caged bearing system for a smooth and consistent opening. Each knife comes with a razor edge, and is ready for use right out of the package.
The Handle: Two thick slabs of 0.190" titanium were chosen for the handle of the Redencion 228, both blasted and tumbled just like the blade. All edge have been chamfered, with a slightly aggressive jimping given to the top of the handle for traction. The knife has a full stainless pivot, with titanium standoffs and screws holding everything firmly in place. Ramon's distinctive titanium clip remains intact, with a full satin finish applied to contrast the darker handle. A standoff lanyard attachment is also present, letting the user easily add their own personal touch to the knife.
A black nylon velcro pouch with red liner is included with the purchase of each knife.
