Spyderco C152CFP Chaparral - CTS-XHP Blade - Carbon Fiber/G-10 Laminate Handle
Chaparral. A very cool name we must admit. Though to many of us the chaparral is a lowly scrub bush that's as ubiquitous as dirt once you leave paved roads out west, the Spyderco Chaparral is quite an amazing knife. Chaparral has a tenacity to survive, revive and regenerate after being destroyed by drought or fire deeming it something to respect. It's also what Spyderco calls a new and continuing series of gentlemen's folders, with new and more interesting offerings to come.
Mid-sized Chaparral folders will have identical blade and handle profiles but showcase variant handle materials. Handle options will be chosen for their elegant appearance and functional utility with a focus directed at making the Chaparral series unique as well as a serious contender in the gent's knife genre. Possibly Spyderco's thinnest, lightest mid-sized CLIPIT yet, the debut Chaparral has a carbon fiber/G-10 laminate handle with a mid-positioned back lock and screw-together construction.
Attached to the ultra-slim handle, a left-right, tip-up clip arranges the knife deeply inside a pocket. Carpenter Technology Co. produces the CTS XHP powdered steel used for the leaf-shaped blade. The blade is ground full-flat and offered PlainEdged for the best available cutting performance with non-skid jimping located at both the spine and choil.
