Best EDC 'office' carry
Dan J.
I think of this as a 'mini manix' - and it has become my goto every day carry now that I work in an office setting.

Pros: Lightweight, thin, deep carry, and great CTS-HXP steel. Don't let the FRN handle deter you - this is a high-quality item and feels that way - its built with steel liners! The subdued light grey handles are nice look as well.

Cons: My Delica now sits in a drawer and waits for the weekend.
Sweet little EDC
Patrick P.
Pros: very thin and easy to carry, GREAT slicer, super lightweight, solid lockup
Cons: backlock release is very stiff (needs two hands to close), wire pocket clip gets bent easily.
Overall I find myself going back to this knife again and again for EDC. No regrets buying this little guy.
Great EDC
Will R.
Great knife for general cutting tasks. I like it because it is so thin and is slightly easier for me to hold than a dragonfly because it is a little wider and I have mild arthritis (especially when it's cold). Thin blade that just slices through almost anything beautifully. Mainly use it to open and collapse boxes. CTS-HXP also stays sharp for a long time.

No complaints except I wish it came in a variety of colors. Don't love the gray, would like a purple or blue.

I loved my Delica, but I sold it to buy this. It's better in almost every way! Way to go Spyderco!
Nice little knife
Mike F.
This is a decent little knife. Great EDC option for smaller tasks. If you just want something that will disappear in your pocket, this is a winner. The FRN pattern looks cool and doesn't grab at your pants pocket when you're trying to get it out. Mine came centered and well constructed.

One thing, and the reason I give 4 stars, is that the lockback mechanism is so thin it cuts into my thumb a bit which makes it very uncomfortable to use. Also, like many Spyderco knives, this one was so stiff out of the box that it still hasn't even broken in to the point where I want to carry it every day. Also, the lockback is so tight that you really have to press hard to get it to release. No fun. In contrast, I got a Lil Native, and it's been in my pocket since the day I got it. Same size, better compression locking system, and just a better all around knife (IMHO).

As for the Spydie clip, I'm not a huge fan, so I removed it from this one, and put the Chaparral on my desk so I could use it from time to time in hopes of breaking it in slowly.
Itís a gent folder
Joseph M.
This knife is specifically carried for special occasions, because of its thin, sleek, and slim appearance. For basic edc carry itís not the best option but I like it very much as a gent folder
Best Spyderco so far!
Andy Z.
I own about 15 Spyderco knives, and by FAR , this Spyderco Chaparral FRN is the absolute best! It is a very slim/low-profile knife, that is just amazingly perfect in every way. The blade material (cts-xhp) is unmatched by any other blade material I have tried so far. Not only is the whole knife thin, the blade is also thin (measuring at about 0.080" at the jinping) it slices extremely well. The absolute best slicer I have owed thus far, and once I got this knife, I finally felt "this is the only knife I really even need"... Awesome job on this one Spyderco! And I will pry be buying a second because I live this knife so much.
Duped by fanboys?

The fabled spyderco wire clip is a big disappointment, it gets easily bent if shifted in the pocket and makes a rattling sound. The lock back bar is sharp and uncomfortable to use, this from a guy that has no problems with a tri-ad lock. Everything else is excellent, especially the thin blade and geometry.
