Spyderco 2017 Production Sample – Chaparral Raffir Brass Mesh

I think this new Chaparral is known in the Spyderco catalog as the Chaparral Raffir Noble. Whatever the name, I think this is a very nice classy edition to the Chaparral line. The handle material has very light and smooth feel to it. The handle’s ergos help to sufficiently control the knife, so I don’t think this handle will turn out to be too slippery for everyday carry. It is surprisingly difficult to photograph though. In these photos it looks darker and greener than I remember it from handling the knife in person. This ‘Raffir Brash Mesh’ Chaparral should be much more affordable than the previous high-end Chaparrals. Definitely another edition to my Spyderco wishlist!
