I saved the Chaparral 3 for the last video I shot at the IWA show. This knife is one of my favorites and Eric Glesser was kind enough to help me shoot this video. Although I have no concrete info, I’m guessing this won’t be a cheap knife. I suspect the handle on this Chaparral 3 takes a lot of machining time, and with those close tolerances, it can’t be cheap. In my opinion, the stepped titanium pattern is even nicer in persan than in video or pictures. The ergos were great too, no sharp edges where they shouldn’t be.
