You all need to get your hands on the HH UKPK...you'll forget all about the Chaparral, I know for me that knife obsoleted the Chap and made it easy to sell.
I´d certainly be interested!!
But- just in theory, never had a UKPK! - doubt that it could beat the Chap for me (in the areas I like the Chap so much):
- UKPK: Blade 25% thicker:
Sure, thickness behind the edge and several more parameters contribute to great slicing performance: But a thin blade is one groundwork for that that is very hard to achieve diy (making the whole blade thinner I mean).
- And one point where the Chap wins for me hands down: It has a lock (and one of the best I ever experienced)
This is important for me, since the Chap is also my hard use, little outdoor and bushcraft folder, just cause the thin blade performs so well in that capacity too: And for that "harder" use, including perhaps some minor drilling and stabbing, I really want a lock, even in a knife where I have a finger in the choil anyway. In that kind of use the blade actually could collapse on you - nothing you´d want in the remote outdoors...
Top three going by pocket-time: Endura 4 in VG 10/Micarta-scales; Stretch 1 in VG 10; Endura 4 in HAP 40
