The Chapter Knife - Straight

in Black + Black


The classic single-blade folder re-imagined

With the Chapter knife, simple is significant. The titanium frame-lock construction is the simplest there is, with minimal moving parts and maintenance. The blade, made of D2 tool steel, stays sharp longer than stainless and resists chips and abrasions. Simple is also beautiful, like the subtle “Electric Moss” anodized hits on the blade and thumb stud — just to remind you that you’re carrying something special. This is a knife that you will use for a lifetime.

About D2 Steel

D2 steel belongs to a family of alloys known as tool steel. Different alloys adapt the steel to particular tool applications: cutting, casting, forging. In general, due to its toughness tool steel is great for shaping other materials. The extra hardness of the D2 steel will keep the blade on your Chapter Knife sharp for longer and will also protect it from chips and abrasions.

  • 3.75” handle
  • 6.5” overall length



Keep your knife sharp all the time. This is rule #1 for a reason. There are many tools and techniques for keeping your knife sharp; learn the one that works best for you. You should sharpen your own knives.


If you get your knife wet, take a towel to it. All metals will corrode when wet for extended periods of time. Keep the grit and dirt out of your knife, especially out of the primary pivot area. If it moves, it needs to be clean, dry and lubricated (see below).


Keep your knife properly lubricated. There are a lot of different kinds of lubricant out there, and you can choose the one the works best for you. We recommend something light, that won't carry a lot of grit.
