CRKT’s Redemption is Ken Onion’s Tribute to the Knives Carried on the American Frontier
 

The CRKT Redemption Crossbar Lock knife is based on knifemaker Ken Onion’s Deadman’s Hand and is designed as an homage to cowboys and desperados of the Old West, featuring a spear point blade, false edge, and stonewash finish. However, it’s been brought into the modern age, using cutting-edge CPM MagnaCut steel (which offers amazing toughness and excellent edge retention) for the blade and ultra-grippy G10 for the handle.

 

 

The crossbar lock ensures the folding blade stays securely in place when extended, but is easy enough you can fold it in a second when finished using it. Thanks to the deep pocket clip, it’ll stay tucked safely out of the way but easily within reach at a moment’s notice.
