The Chaparral was designed to be the consummate lock-blade gentleman’s pocketknife. Exceptionally thin to keep its weight to a minimum and ensure ease of carry, it features a flat-ground leaf-shaped blade with outstanding edge geometry for near-effortless cutting performance. Its acute point excels at detail work, yet retains the structural strength for all-purpose use. A Trademark Round Hole facilitates easy one or two-handed opening and makes the knife very easy to get into action.
The Chaparral’s highly evolved handle shape balances a full-sized grip and user-friendly ergonomics with a slim, easily carried profile that tucks neatly into any pocket. A reliable back lock mechanism ensures that the blade stays securely locked in the open position and, along with a reversible wire pocket clip, makes the knife completely ambidextrous. The low-ride clip not only supports left or right-side tip-up carry, but it also blends unobtrusively with any color of clothing.
In the open position, the juncture of the Chaparral’s blade and handle features a forefinger choil and a subtle thumb ramp on the spine of the blade. Both have jimping (textured grooves) and provide an ideal purchase for the thumb and index finger for superior control during use.
