SP152TIP: C152TIP 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. 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.

A very nice knife
This is my first spyderco. Coming from using zero tolerance as my daily carry knives, i wanted something that was smaller, but of equal quality. This knife doesn't disappoint! The fit and finish are amazing, solid blade lock up, and excellent blade steel. The machining of the scales is awesome, and the jimping on the thumb ramp and choil provide grip without being uncomfortable.I took a chance on the lockback design, but the release being located in the middle of the knife allows for one handed close (although a bit tricky.) My only complaints are minor. The wire pocket clip has much more movement in it for my taste, and seems a bit on the flimsy side. Also, the blade sharpness out of the package reminds me of a low cost gerber.

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.
