The Chaparral knife from Spyderco is a sleek and lightweight folding knife. It features a carbon fiber handle with a back lock and screw-together construction. The handle is ultra-slim and comes with a reversible pocket clip for easy and discreet carrying. The blade is made of CTS-XHP powdered stainless steel, which is flat ground and plain edged for optimal cutting performance. The knife also has non-skid jimping on both the spine and choil for added grip. The Chaparral series is inspired by the resilient Chaparral shrub found in the Western United States, known for its ability to survive and regenerate after drought. Spyderco designed this series to be both elegant and functional, with different handle materials available for a unique and stylish look.
