Chaves Ultramar knives from Ramon Chavez are manufactured in China by Reate Knives aimed to bring his amazing knives to a wider audience base. There are a variety of different models including a production Street version of his famous Redencion knife that is iconic in the knife world. Each features his signature titanium skull pocket clip, an inlaid titanium presentation scale, a replaceable lockbar insert, and a machine satin Bohler M390 blade. They are perfect for everyday carry and Reate has managed to recreate Ramon's incredible action perfectly so they flip just like the real thing!
This Redencion Street is on par with the Chaves American Made 228 in terms of fit and finish...well everything but size. This is the shrunk-down Redencion model that is designed for everyday carry and it might just be the perfect knife. It gets the size absolutely spot on and the flipping action using either of the dual thumb studs and either your thumb or middle finger is rocketship fast. The compound tanto blade has a machine satin finish and is paired with a squared-off stonewashed titanium handle. The frame lock features a replaceable lockbar insert and the knife is complete with a partial titanium backspacer. If Ramon Chavez has been on your wish list for a while but remains outside your price point, then check out a Chaves Ultramar. For the money, there isn't a better mid-tech type production knife that we can think of.
