Spyderco's unique Chaparral series uses a highly refined gentleman’s folder design as a canvas to highlight distinctive handle materials and texture patterns. The Blue Stepped Titanium version is the most ambitious Chaparral to date, featuring solid titanium scales meticulously CNC-machined to produce a breathtaking “stepped” pattern. Composed entirely of straight lines, this amazing pattern creates the illusion of curves and detailed geometric shapes, as well as adding texture to the handle. Partway through the machining process, the scales are color anodized a brilliant blue before they are machined again. The result is a spectacular contrast of alternating blue and silver steps that further accentuates the exacting detail of the design. This painstaking process produces only 12 sets of scales per day and is the most time-intensive manufacturing procedure used on any Spyderco knife.
One of the most exquisitely crafted folding knives ever made, the Blue Stepped Titanium Chaparral features a full-flat-ground CTS XHP stainless steel blade, a sturdy back lock mechanism, and a reversible deep-pocket wire clip that supports ambidextrous tip-up carry.
