I've been debating on a Delica as my next Spydie purchase for the past while, but this is very tempting, and only $16 CAD more... Love the wire-clip and finger choil.
I already have an FRN DFly 2 in VG-10 that I absolutely love; do you think the Chaparral is a big enough of a step up in size to justify for someone who does not like redundant items (I'm a one knife in each size category kind of guy, not a collector)? How does the pocket presence compare between the DFly vs. Chappy? How does the cutting performance feel with the extra 12mm blade? Is it worth it buy the Chappy if I own a DF2 already?
My local knife shop had a Delica, Native, Sage and Para 3 that I compared to my DF2, and they all felt like one level up in size. Out of those, I liked the Delica and Para 3 the best, but the P3 seemed very chunky for it's blade length (compression lock seemed great though). Unfortunately they weren't able to order the Chappy LW in for me to see in person.
Convince me please
