At Knife Newsroom, we like to dream big – and well, Christmas is probably the best time to dream. Here are the top 6 knives on my Christmas wish list. You can see a larger version of each knife by clicking the smaller image.
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.
