The opening hole on the Chap is bigger and since the handle on the DF is smaller, it is more difficult to get a good grip for one handed opening. The Chap and the Cat are almost identical in closed length and width, but the Cat is a little thicker (.399 to .343 not including the clip). The width is a little hard to measure because of the curves but this is what I came up with using my caliper:

Cat: 1.425
Chap: 1.389
DF: 1.348
Thanks for that information and the specs on the width...maybe the Dragonfly just looks a little wider because of the curvature of the handle.

Really looking more and more like I'm gonna have to throw down that Benjamin to get the Chaparral :D
