The Kimber Eclipse model is blued stainless steel. Not sure what their process is or what chemicals they use, but the end result is very nice.

It's not Cerakote or chrome. I'm not sure what the blackening process is. When I held it it looked like a bluing of some sort. The website says the slide and frame are stainless steel.
