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.

Spyderco Mike Draper
Very nice looking knife with anodized titanium handles. Blade sharpness leaves a lot to be desired.

Spyderco Mike Draper
I had my eye on this knife for awhile, but the price point kept me from buying. Spyderco discontinued the Draper and many knife companies marked them down so I purchased one then. As always with Spyderco, the quality was great and the materials were machined to perfection. There wasn't really anything about this knife that I didn't need to know before purchase since I had been checking this knife out for awhile. The only drawback to the Draper for me was the lockup bar, its a little to flush with the scales to make it easily closed, other than that, I am pleased overall with my purchase.

Great knife and great deal
Another example of Spyderco's excellent quality and innovation. The titanium scales are pure perfection, the VG10 steel blade razor sharp. I really like the way the pocket clip is produced to match the pattern on the scales. This is only a right pocket clip as there is no way to reverse the clip. The one con (and it's minor) is the blade lock is firm to release, but this promises it will not fail. There is Quality in every detail, I can find nothing to criticize. And Knife Center provided a substantial discount which just adds to my enjoyment. It arrived in just a couple of days after ordering.
