This small knife has surprised me with its great performance at heavier tasks....
Great to have another advocate for the Chap as not-only-lite-duty-knife!!!
I´ve said it before and I say it again: I´ve used and tested my Chap FRN in a lot of "harder"use tasks (bushcrafting, harder wood and so on). It is perfectly suited for that, solid enough and in many cutting tasks just superior due to its thin stock.
I mean, the only part of the blade you could really break (snap of) in any not overly crazy test (deliberatley inveneted
to break a blade) is the tip. And due to the lead shape the Chaps tip is not that weak. I´d guess perhaps stronger than a PM2 or Para 3 tip...
/ Another great thing:; In real use
the Chap is really stable and locked in the hand. Honestly, in my experience more stable than a Native 5
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
