- Technical Description
Sycamore wood’s utilitarian quality made it a popular choice for makers of 19th-century furniture, specialty products like trunks and cutting boards, and even Pullman rail cars. Today this beautiful species carries its reputation for performance forward in this new knife series. The Trapper gets its name from the consumer it was designed for. Because of its basic trapping and skinning blades and its lightweight, it is a must-have knife for those who trap small game. It is a jack knife with two full-length blades; a slender Clip and a long Spey.
The Clip blade is commonly used as a multi-purpose blade and preferred for detail work while the Spey blade is commonly used as an all-purpose utility blade. This knife is constructed with Case Tru-Sharp stainless steel which is a special high-carbon steel that helps the blades hold an edge longer than conventional steel.
- The Clip blade is extremely versatile just the thing for those everyday tasks at work or around the house. With a sharp point for piercing, the shape allows for better control of the cutting edge.
- The Spey blade was a vital tool for farmers and ranchers who would use it when castrating livestock. Also a favored tool for skinning games, this all-purpose blade shape is found in many popular knife patterns such as the Trapper.
