Description
SP152TIP: C152TIP Chaparral
Spyderco

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. 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 second installment in the Chaparral series is a serious contender in the gent's knife genre. The titanium handle is sculpted to capture light and create texture in your hand with a diamond, stealth-like pattern. A left-right, tip-up pocket clip and mid-positioned backlock complement the folder and its' CTS XHP leaf shaped, full flat ground blade is Plain Edged for advanced cutting performance.

Amazing
I received the chaparral TI about 2 weeks ago and so far I love it. I have never spent this much on a knife before so I had some buyers remorse while it was being shipped. Once I got it though, all that trepidation went out the window. It is a classy looking folder that is a great conversation piece, not to mention it maintains the spyderco functionality we've all come to love. The biggest surprises were how thin the blade is (not a bad thing…) and how light it is. I'm using it as my EDC and it works well for boxes, envelopes, plastic wiring, etc. One thing I've noticed is that, well when you cut tape, you often get that goo residue on the blade. With this, that goo comes off much easier than with other knives I've owned. Overall great buy. Spyderco has yet to fall short of my expectations.

A Unique Place
This is another incomparable knife from the knife company most deserving of a large shimmering star on their fridge, and a bottle of fine scotch for the owner, Sal Glesser. I've made the perilous journey from starter-knives to six hundred dollar customs (and would have ascended the six thousand range given the pocket-book) but return again and again to Spyderco. I'd been viewing the beautiful titanium Chaparral for awhile, but kept avoiding purchase because of the "gentleman's folder" misnomer. No doubt this is a beautiful knife, and it would fit in well at the Annual Fundraising Dinner for the local charity, but I don't think it has received the attention it deserves-- In fact, I think it's a silver wolf in sheep's clothing. When I first received the knife my knee-jerk reaction was to send it back. Until I picked it up. The knife occupies a sparse ground between the Dragonfly and the Sage 2. It is a smaller yet unique version of the Sage 2, but not quite as diminutive as the Dragonfly. It feels like perfection in your fingers, four of which, snuggly placed, contact both handle scales. Chocking-up leaves room to spare at the butt end, and the scales are beautiful in a way different from what one expects from the available photos-- the highlight is not so much the fine machine lines inside the triangular sections, but the way in which the triangles are placed at a multitude of varied angles which give a wonderful tactile feel underneath your thumb-- this was pleasantly surprising and also alleviated the worry of the occasional little pocket scratch marring the overall aesthetic effect of the knife. The knife does not feel fragile in any way, and the materials-- titanium scales and CTX-XHP blade-- lead me to believe that it is tough enough to face a hard days work. This knife is Cary Grant with a stiletto behind his back. If you're hesitating, don't. It'll cut you to the core.
