    Spencer which Chap do you like better? I'm trying to decide between a Chaparral 1, 2, or an Air. I'm currently leaning towards the Air because I don't have any M4 in my collection yet.

    I gotta represent the Vallotton since I'm one of the few who love it.

    Nice pics everyone.
    Are the Cats and Chicagos made in Taichung? I thought they came from a different maker.

    Maybe you are right. These knives are carbon fiber and CPM S30V. The first production. And there is not Taichung but Taiwan standing on the blade. I thought this was the same manufacturier. Qualitate is the Same!

    hi there,

    The first editions Cat and Chicago (CF and CPM-s30V) came from a diffent manufacturier in Taiwan.
    They were discontinued after some problems.
