SP183TIP: C183TIP Burch Chubby
Inspired by one of knifemaker Michael Burch's most popular custom models, the Burch Chubby packs tremendous cutting performance into a very compact package. It's 2.3" CPM S30V blade is an impressive 4.5 mm thick and more than an inch and a half wide at its widest point. The high hollow grind and sweeping edge profile give it amazing edge geometry and the matching hollow ground swedge reduces weight, ensures an acute point, and makes for easy and effective stabbing. The stout Titanium handle houses a Reeve Integral Lock mechanism and is accented by three circular carbon fiber inlays on the face scale. A sturdy pocket clip offers convenient right hand, tip-up carry and the design double as an overtravel mechanism for the lock. Quite a beefy little design, you are not giving up anything on cutting power and durability when you pick up a Burch Chubby.

Pros: Overall Quality, Ease of Opening, Blade Sharpness, Pocket Clip, Lock Ease of Use, Handle Material, Lock Type
Cons: Blade Material, Weight, None
I like robust knives and the Burch Chubby is a small robust knife. Fit and Finish are excellent. Lock is easy to operate with solid lockup. Lots of things to like about this knife. What I don't like is the blade shape; it doesn't seem to be a good utility shape. Would have liked to see a more exotic steel for the blade.

Spyderco Chubby
Simply a well-made product for the money. I find I use it this knife often and it is oversize that is very comfortable to have in your pocket solid and well built . The blade material holds it is very well and the curved shape of the blade gives it excellent cutting power .

Great little knife
I have a few spydercos and got this to swap out with my dragonfly 2. While this knife is pretty small, it still carries larger than the DF2 in my fob pocket. I find the clip to be a little large and cumbersome compared to other spyderco clips. Knifecenter were awesome to deal with, and shipped internationally, to the other side of the world, without any issues, and the knife arrived in good time. Will definitely order from Knifecenter again.
