The Chaves Knives Redencion Street is based on the revered custom RedenciÃ³n model. The Street Drop Point is a slightly scaled down version, but still maintains its overbuilt framelock heritage. This knife is part of the Ultramar series, a production line made by Reate to bring Ramon's exceptional custom designs to a wider audience. The Redencion Street comes with two pocket clips, a classic style clip, and the Chaves signature skull clip.
The Chaves Ultramar Redencion Street comes in two blade syles, and dozens of variations in finish and handle material.
Had this knife in my wishlist for a long time. Finally pulled the plug and glad I did. I give it 5 stars but have one small baby issue... The clip. The knife comes with another clip without the skull and I haven't switched them yet but the skill clip is tight to clip on pocket but I can live with this no problem. If you're thinking about buying one then think no more you will be completely satisfied when you get it and open it the first time the buttery smooth action puts a smile on my face everytime.
I've always wanted a chavez knife and I finally got one. I knew the detent were strong on chavez knives but man lemme tell you I almost sent mines back because it was uncomfortable to deploy because I have baby hands. I gave it a chance to break in the action and I love it. All for the price of my thumbs
This knife may be my favorite I have ever purchased. Fit and finish is perfect, detent is strong (which I prefer), and the compound grind on the blade is beautiful. I love everything about the knife, if you are on the fence ORDER ONE!
Good solid build , love the pocket clip. The only thing to consider is that the detent is a little strong but it makes for a great flipper. Other than that a flawless build by reate and chavez
That said , more attention could have been paid to the tuning of the detent. I broke mine in wearing Fox dirt bike gloves and it's still strong but manageable. Also you have to get used to not touching the lock bar. The slightest pressure on it and you aren't going to open the knife. You might open the top of your thumb but not the knife.
This blade was made sparing no expense in material. The dense feeling in hand alone definitely gives you the sense of quality that went into making this blade. If you’re anything like me you went through several videos after dropping the dime on this little guy. The design of the blade and the high quality materials sold me alone. Like any American I was held back a little bit because of the country of origin but I got over it quick. My only gripe is that out of the box this blade is rough on the thumbs to flip open. I just expect a little more at this price point. All things above considered, I would definitely buy this again.
Was really excited to get the knife, fit and finish are awesome, very heavy knife. However, a knife is only good if you can deploy the blade...it is physically impossible to deploy the blade with the thumb screws, I have to two hand open, totally unacceptable for a knife at this price point...won't buy another.
