It’s rare when you handle a knife for the first time and you’re either speechless or all you can utter is, Dang! That’s why Camillus has saved you time and effort and just put the thought into your head; this thing is a Beast! Measuring 9-3/4″ overall with a 3-3/4″ VG-10 blade, this new tactical folder from Camillus is meant for the tough and rugged field of battle. The handle is large of course and the straight lines, reminiscent of a Sebenza, are definitely comfortable in a variety of grips. You can use the flipper mechanism or overlarge thumb slot/hole for opening and the action is extremely smooth. Check out this modified American tanto blade design at www.knifecenter.com.
The Spyderco Caparral, like the Sage models before it, is another knife series that will introduce a new model to the family each year. Now in stock at the KnifeCenter, the Chaparral 2 features artfully designed milled Titanium handle scales and CTS-XHP blade steel. Made by Carpenter, XHP is touted as a high hardness 440C stainless or a corrosion resistant D2 tool steel. The ergonomics are superb on all Chaparral models as is the smooth action and deep carry wire clip, which is reversible for the leftys. The best thing about the Chaparral by far is the thin profile it provides while carrying it. At 5/16″ thick and 6-3/8″ overall, it’s a perfect hard use gentleman’s folder that really disappears in the pocket. Check it out now at www.knifecenter.com.
