The Chaparral 3 has a stepped titanium handle with a mid-positioned back lock and screw-together construction. Attached to the ultra-slim handle, a left-right, tip-up pocket clip arranges the knife deeply inside a pocket. CTS-XHP stainless steel blade. The blade is flat ground and plain edged for the best available cutting performance with non-skid jimping located at both the spine and choil.
A 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. It’s also what Spyderco calls a new and continuing series of gentlemen’s folders. Mid-sized Chaparral folders have identical blade and handle profiles but showcase various handle materials. Handle options will be chosen for their elegant appearance and functional utility with a focus directed at making the Chaparral series unique as well as a serious contender in the gentleman's knife genre.
Has a couple light scratches and two small nicks in the blade, otherwise good condition.
