Sal: How about a Chaparral with 2.5mm blade thickness?

Postby nativeleek » Sat Nov 16, 2019 1:07 am

Hi Sal.

Chaparral is pretty much a perfect EDC folder for gentlemen's carry or for people with small to medium sized hands. The only thing that possibly needs to improve is the thin lock-bar, which may become a hot-spot when being pressed.

A simple way to solve this problem is to make the blade a little thicker, let's say from 2mm to 2.5mm. This will make the lock bar a lot more comfortable to press and also make the blade a little bit stronger, with absolutely no impact on the carriability.

If there is a plan for Chaparral 2, is it possible to make this change happen? Every other thing about Chaparral needs no change. Just make the blade a little thicker and keep everything else the same as the present Chaparral.
