SP152CFP: C152CFP Chaparral

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. It returns year after year and is what Spyderco named 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 will have a carbon-fiber handle, mid-positioned back lock and screw-together construction. CTS-XHP leaf-shaped blade is ground full-flat with non-skid jimping located at both the spine and choil.

The original locking mechanism. It can be found mid spine or at the bottom of the handle, and it provides tight lockup that will wear well.

Pros: Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Lock Type, None
I feel the Spyderco Chaparral is a quality piece of workmanship! The fit and finish is top notch and makes for a perfect gentleman's folder. I use this as my EDC when not at work. The only reason why I gave this a 4 rating and not a 5 is due to the blade steel. The description states S30V and my knife came with CTS-XHP. When I looked at knife they have pictured (after I received the knife) the close-up did show CTS-XHP. They need to change the knife description. None the less I am very pleased with my purchase!

Spyderco hits another one out of the park
I bought this as a gift for my son in law. I had the knife sent to me to examine it before I sent it to him. Tight lockup, razor sharp. The carbon fiber panels look different on the knife than in the pictures. I have several Spydercos with the carbon fiber handles and they wear extremely well and are quite strong. I was proud to give this knife and my son in law was delighted with it. Score. Typical of my experience with Spyderco and Knife Center.

This is a neat knife!
This is a neat knife! The carbon fiber scales class up the knife and help turn it into a Gentleman's Folder. They're matte finished and textured and give a good grip, unlike other folders with polished carbon fiber scales that can get slick. A pet peeve of mine is that many EDCs have handles longer than necessary for the blade length, but not the Chaparral. The handle couldn't be any shorter and contain the blade. The handle is shaped well and, with the jimping on the spine and choil, the knife fits my hand great and doesn't shift. Some have complained that the blade isn't thick enough, but this is a Gentleman's Folder/EDC and a thicker blade would only make the knife thicker. The blade is long enough, well shaped and SHARP. Although it's not apparent in the photos, the pocket clip is blackened. This compliments the dark gray carbon fiber scales and is low key. All in all this is a great knife.It looks expensive, is compact, tolerances are tight and it's ergonomic. One thing I think could be improved is the location of the backlock. It looks good, but I have to shift my grip to use it. I wish there were a provision for a lanyard, but given how short the handle is, I doubt there's room for a lanyard hole in the handle and it would probably have to be attached to the spine someplace.
