Chaparral is a shrub native to the Western United States with the unique ability to perennially survive, revive and regenerate after being destroyed by drought or fire. Like a season it returns year after year. It's also what Spyderco calls a new and continuing series of gentlemen's folders.
Mid-sized Chaparral folders will have identical blade and handle profiles but showcase variant handle materials. 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 offers a plain/straight edge for the best available cutting performance with non-skid jimping located at both the spine and choil.
