Spyderco C171TIBLP Mike Draper Folder 3.67" VG10 Blade, Titanium with Blue Spider Web Design Handle
SP171TIBLP: C171TIBLP Mike Draper Folder
Wyoming native Mike Draper is a Journeyman Smith in the American Bladesmith Society and an accomplished custom maker whose style includes everything from tough tactical folders to investment-quality art knives. His first collaboration with Spyderco reflects both ends of that spectrum to yield practical, highly functional folding knife executed with exceptional craftsmanship.
The modified drop point blade of the Mike Draper Folder is made from VG10 stainless steel and features a full-flat grind for a superior balance of strength and low-friction edge geometry. Its easily accessible Trademark Round Hole proudly proclaims it as a Spyderco product and allows swift one-handed opening with either hand. The blade is supported by a sturdy Walker LinerLock mechanism that is finished flush with the handle slot to prevent unintentional closure.
The Mike Draper Folder's eye-catching handle is constructed with two solid titanium scales that are intricately CNC machined to produce a stunning spider web pattern and a subtle surface texture. Portions of the pattern are then colorized to contrast boldly against the matte-finished titanium to further highlight the design. The handle flares at both ends to create a highly functional integral guard and a butt hook and includes a solid, full-length back spacer for additional strength. A custom pocket clip follows the flow of the handle contour and design to provide immediate access via right-side, tip-up carry.
