    The knife was designed for use on animals and fish...a hunter. If you added this extra feature, it would reduce the utility of the blade for this purpose. While I am fine with this on the Chaparral,...

    It will be a nice looking knife, but the current Stretch is a gem. I find the handle ergonomics to be as good as it comes, and I don't have a need for the choil. The choil certainly looks nice, but...

    I actually like the idea of a laminate ZDP, aince it would aid I. Resisting corrosion. I like the current blade configuration, and would be interested in G10 or a grippy CF.

    We don't seem to see many Spyderco knives in this steel. The Native 5 has been in short supply for some time.
    Any ideas why? Is there a supply problem for the steel? Is it economic and cost related?...

    I have the Chaparral in my pocket more than most of my knives (the Rookie is in there right now). I removed the clip and added a small black O-ring as a spacer. It works fine.
