    The Delica must have been from around 2008 IIRC, and the Balance is from 2013.

    Love this knife, and did a short write-up on it on my site.

    nice little write up as well. The part where you say the chaparral 3 might become a more sought after knife in the future. Do you think spyderco would discontinue the chaparral 3 for lack of sales when it is in a series?

    Judging from history, I think this knife will not be the greatest seller and it's tough to bring a lot of these to market as well (Sal mentioned they could only make about 10 a day). And lack of sales has been the no 1 reason to discontinue a knife in the line-up. Despite all the criticism about the price regaring the country of origin now, I have a hunch that this will become something of a grail knife for collectors.
