Re: Choosing the Chaparral

Nice review, very informative for size comparisons ... As I have a FRN Chaparral, I was hesitating buying a DF2. I was afraid of a too short grip for 4 fingers. It seems that the grip length of the DF2 is very similar to the Chap's one... I made my choice, I will definitely try the upcoming DF2 Salt...

Re: Hope for a Chaparral with upgraded steel?

Hi there, I totally agree Wartstein ... Chaparral could b...

Re: So what's your top 3 favorite steels? and why?

Hi there, a little bump to give a chance to new members to vote. :) I only use stainles steel as I want to be able to rinse quickly my knife after use and put it back in my pocket.

Re: Hi there ...

August this year was the month to visit Paris... Few tourists, few Parisians, sunny summer... But At the bottom of the Eiffel Tower, I forgot my Chaparral in the pocket. First checkpoint, no problem. Just checking the bagpack... I felt lucky. Bought tickets and then... Fail.... X-ray checkpoint. I t...

Re: Hi there ...

So that night I became a fan of Calvedos. Rob Nice to hear it. I stick with eating apples. To much bad Calvados, distilled by grandfathers in their garage. At least, eating apples allows me to use my knives ;) I particularly like Golden Delicious (!) Apples - soft ang classicand Pink Lady -more cri...

Re: "Laser milled Spider" on Watu blades

Thanks for those replies. I also think that Watu is so specific and produced as small batch, that it won't be counterfeited. Thanks all for taking time to answer and thx for picture Pstone. Definitely the fact that your bug seems to be not as defined as others, tends to confirm my impression and rea...

Hi, Wanting a slicing machine for my daily apples, I was interested in the Watu, mainly because of the unusual blade shape but also because of the thin grind design. Every box was checked ! Cool ! But no cutlery in the area. As the design is so specific, I decided to wait for a second hand to have i...

Re: Hi there ...

Merci and congrats for french words :) I have the LW Chaparral ... nice blade for EDC, a good size for me. I love this thin grind -as many seems to- and it is very comfortable in the pocket and in the hand, even in my large hands. For opening letters and boxes, everyday minor (and a bit more) cuttin...

Hi there ...

Hi Spydie community, a new french member on this forum. After so many years reading so many posts, I decide to join the forum. I've begun to investigate Knife's world many years ago but was a bit reluctant buying a spyderco. I first found it a bit strange with this Hole. Then, I bought my first spyd...
