SP152GSMP: C152GSMP Chaparral Sun and Moon

Spyderco

Spyderco's popular Chaparral series is a celebration of both consistency and artistic diversity. The latest addition to this elite family, the Chaparral Sun & Moon, not only continues this proud tradition but in many ways, it's also a perfect visual metaphor for its central theme.

The Sun & Moon is the first expression of the Chaparral to feature G10 handle scales. However, unlike ordinary G10-handled knives, it showcases both a two-toned format and painstakingly executed inlays in both sides of the handle. The white scale on the reverse side is inlaid with a contrasting red G10 insert. The obverse side features a black scale accented by a genuine mother of pearl inlay. Both inlays are perfect circles and are seamlessly fitted into their respective scales before being sanded smooth and polished. The result is a stunning design that is reminiscent of the Yin and Yang—the ancient Chinese philosophical symbol that represents the concept of duality in nature. Hard and soft, male and female, light and dark, sun and moon, the concept of Yin and Yang reminds us that all opposites are both interconnected and interdependent in the natural world.

Relying on the inherent strength of its G10 scales and a stainless steel backspacer, the Chaparral Sun & Moon features slim, linerless construction that keeps its overall weight to a scant 2.3 ounces (65 grams). At only 0.33 inches (8.4 mm) thick, its handle also provides support for the knife's sturdy lockback mechanism and is home to a reversible, deep-pocket wire clip that provides a choice of left or right-side tip-up carry.

The knife's thin, leaf-shaped blade is full-flat ground from CTS XHP stainless steel and has a handsome satin finish. It includes a 50/50 index-finger choil at the juncture of the ricasso and handle that allows the option of a forward-positioned "choked-up" grip for enhanced control. Both the choil and the opposing thumb ramp on the spine of the blade include thoughtfully placed jimping (textured grooves) for even greater grip security. Mirroring the completely symmetrical ergonomics of the handle, the blade features a fully accessible Trademark Round Hole that allows easy one-handed opening with either hand.

True to the spirit of the Chaparral family, the Sun & Moon offers unfailing cutting performance in stunning style. A vivid reflection of its symbolism of the opposing qualities of Yin and Yang, it is a knife that is sure to please both collectors and users alike.

Fit and finish are outstanding. Feels very high quality and smooth operation. Spyderco did a great job. Very pleased with this purchase. I don’t review a lot of items but felt the need to chime in on the Sun and Moon version. No cons to speak of.

Cons: Ease of Opening, Lock Ease of Use
Great blade. Beautiful knife. Hard to open
This is a great EDC. It feels great in the hand. It has an incredibly stiff action. Good luck trying to spydie/-flick it. Hopefully, it will become looser over time. I can barely open it with one hand. Other than that, I’m not a huge fan of the locking mechanism. That being said, it has CTS-XHP blade; my first in my knife collection. If you are on the fence, I’d still highly recommend it

Cons: Ease of Opening
Fantastic quality
So far I have only tested the blade on paper and opening packages as I have received it just today.The knife is absolutely fantastic! Quality craftsmanship, the blade is perfectly centered, has a nice, sharp edge and the G10 handles with the inlays has a seamless smooth surface, not even a nm gap between the materials!The blade is a little hard to open but I imagine it will be smoother after some use and or some silicone
