Outside, it looks unpleasing to me, especially on the on clip side, as you can see all of the liner and milled holes in the liner. I guess it all comes down to the pattern you get on your particular unit. The more I look at mine, it looks like 2-different knives, as you look at each side.
Guess there are folks who like that look, based on the success of the transparent FRCP Manix Lightweight. However, like you, I'm not one of them. And, unfortunately, the Chaparral's design, with "internal" screws recessed into the scales would probably make adding a thin spacer under the scales less than fully successful at covering those things up. Beginning to wonder if something as simple as applying a coat of silver or gold paint to the inner surface of the scales would do the trick.
