I feel the Chaparral is Sal’s revenge for the failure of the Cat model that was presented last year. Those looking for a small classy folder for the office need not look further; the Chaparral is just the ticket. Personally, I’d go with the Des Horn Folder but that one is a bit larger. Like the South African splinter picker, the Chaparral is a very slick handling little folder. If only the people at the Taichung factory would cut some sharper jimping on the spine of their knives.
