    Spyderco's website is showing this knife under the "United States" "Country Of Origin"

    Can someone confirm if this is correct?

    No. It's just human error on the website. Tang stamps on both my early one and my new production model from NGK, say Taichung, Taiwan.

    EDITED TO ADD: It's been fixed, but it seems that in the process the Bi-Fold got moved to the Made in Taiwan list along with the Chaparral.

    Why thank ya' sir

    Chaparral is the Spydie that I've been waiting for like no other thus far in my modest time span of collecting.

    I just placed my order with Jeff and I am absolutely stoked that it's finally on the way.

    Got mine today from Knifeworks. Wow that blade is thin. Fit and finish are great except the black clip came pre-scratched. I would have preferred the heat treated color. The only bad thing about this knife is it has made my Cat and Urban obsolete.

    Anybody else notice their seems to be an internal stop pin? There is a semi-circular cutout in the liner around the pivot and what appears to be a pin going through the blade riding in the cutout. It's hard to tell with out taking it apart and I don't plan on doing that.

    **EDIT** Found that somebody has already disassembled one here:
