CAM228: Redencion 228 Mid-Tech Folder, Bead Blasted
Chaves American Made Knives
The Redencion 228 from Chaves American Made is based on Ramon's popular custom Redencion folder, but not at a custom price. The 228 is a slightly scaled down version of his custom that is definitely a much-more carriable piece than its predecessor. However it still maintains its overbuilt, beefy frame lock heritage and no-nonsense design. It's simple in appearance but once you feel the quality, smooth action and see Ramon's signature skull pocket clip in person, you will absolutely fall in love with this design.

The 228 is built along the lines of a Medford knife but it is much more similar to a DireWare folder than to anything else. It's not overbuilt just for the sake of being overbuilt. It's designed for the absolute toughest of tasks and has been engineered as such, with some seriously smooth action. The 3.3" hollow ground drop point blade is wicked awesome, made from CPM-S35VN stainless steel with a thick, reinforced tip. The blade rides on caged ball bearings for smooth deployment using the dual thumb studs and locks up rock solidly. The handle is made from two 0.190" thick slabs of 6Al-4V titanium with chamfered edges. It's definitely comfortable to use, even when gripping hard, and the finger groove prevents you from sliding forward onto that gorgeous blade. It is a flow-through design with a milled titanium classic Chavez skull pocket clip that adds the perfect amount of edginess to this fantastic knife.

Semi-Custom or Mid-Tech knives are knives produced by a process in which the designer has more direct--but not complete--involvement; parts of these knives may still have been made by others.
Frame Lock
Frame Lock
Developed by Chris Reeve, it functions like a liner lock but the lock is comprised of one of the handle scales. It's an extremely strong and easy to manipulate lock.
Pocket Clip
Pocket Clip
Includes a pocket clip for easy accessibility and a more secure carry.
A tougher steel than S30V, it retains the excellent corrosive properties and ability to take an edge, but improves on the ability to hold that edge.
Titanium Handles
Titanium Handles
A nonferrous metal, it's prized for its high strength to weight ratio and is often used on higher end knives.

Pros: Ease of Opening, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
solid knife
Received this knife yesterday and it was tight, stuck often when opening. I opened it up and oiled it now it flies open and drops shut with a little shake. I love the size of the handle, I know i have something in my hand, and its quite comfortable. I also picked up the dark purple clip for this. It is about half the thickness of the clip this comes with. It looks great but I do wish it was the exact same size.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Blade Material, Handle Feel, Weight, Overall Quality, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: None
I bought this knife as an EDC. This is a beast of a blade but not overly heavy due to the titanium handle. The locking mech is a little stiff but i would never worry about it failing. Opening the blade was not difficult at all as long as you use a thumb motion which is perpendicular to the hinge, otherwise it can be difficult. Knife did not come as sharp as i would like but was not difficult to sharpen. Overall a beautiful knife, great craftsmanship. If you are tempted to buy this knife i would recommend doing so, you wont regret it.

Pros: Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Lock Type, Blade Material, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality
Cons: Blade Sharpness, None
An absolute tank of a knife.
This is the third 228 I've purchased, but the first with the new clip and blade grind. I am not disappointed. I cannot recommend this blade enough. If you're on the fence about purchasing it, do it. You won't regret it.
