This product is made from solid titanium, not stainless steel coated with titanium. The titanium is colored by a process called Anodization. Anodizing is a process whereby an electrical current is passed through the metal and oxide buildup on the surface of the metal causes the color to change to vivid metallic colors. Depending on your monitor settings, colors on actual items may vary slightly from what you see here.
