Handle: Birdseye Maple Wood

Knife Description:
 
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. Like a season it returns year after year. It's also what Spyderco calls a new and continuing series of Gentlemen's Folders.
 
The most recent addition to this elite family features genuine Birdseye Maple Scales. Sometimes also spelled "bird's eye," this stunning material gets its name because the tiny knots in its grain pattern resemble small bird's eyes. Birdseye is not a specific species of maple, but rather a growth anomaly that typically affects hard maple (Acer saccharum).

The Chaparral Birdseye Maple marries the spectacular look and traditional feel of this material with the proven functionality and ease of use of the Chaparral design platform. Like all members of the family, it features a full-flat-ground leaf-shaped blade with outstanding edge geometry for near-effortless cutting performance. Precision machined from Carpenter Technology's CTS XHP Stainless Steel, the satin-finished blade has a 50/50 index-finger choil and opposing thumb ramp—both with non-slip jimping—that allow a forward-positioned grip for extreme control. It also proudly includes Spyderco's signature Trademark Round Hole™, which is equally accessible from both sides to allow easy one-handed opening with either hand.

To support the knife's breathtaking scales and its sturdy Back Lock Mechanism, its handle is built with full, skeletonized Stainless Steel Liners and a Stainless Steel Backspacer. Its screw-together construction ensures the precise alignment and tensioning of all parts, as well as the attachment of a reversible deep-pocket wire clip. Easily configurable for left or right-side, tip-up carry, the clip provides the perfect balance of discreet carry and quick access. It also complements the knife's symmetrical design to make every aspect of its carry and operation completely ambidextrous.

A proud addition to an elite Spyderco family, the Chaparral Birdseye Maple expresses this unique design with a distinctively traditional flavor.

The fit and finish of this knife is superb and it comes razor sharp from the factory as you’d expect from Spyderco.

About CTS-XHP Steel:

Carpenter Technology Corporation has developed an alloy known as CTS-XHP, an air hardening, high carbon, high chromium, corrosion resistant alloy which can be described as either a high hardness Type 440C stainless steel or a corrosion resistant D2 tool steel. This steel is made using powder metallurgy and possesses corrosion resistance equivalent to Type 440C Stainless but can attain a maximum hardness of 64 HRC which is approaching that of D2 Tool Steel. This alloy offers superior edge retention and surface finish, an ability to be machined to a fine edge, and consistent heat-treatability from lot to lot making it ideal material for knife blades.
