Case Trapper with Pocket Clip – Smooth Yellow Synthetic
Item #: CS-81091
W. R. Case and Sons® have been producing knives for over 100 years and their brand is absolutely one of the most well known. For generations many "firsts" in pocketknives have been Case® knives. These knives are still being handed down from father to son and from grandfather to grandson.
The American Trapper, no matter where it is made, is a classic. The pattern is defined by two blades from the same end, a clip and a long spey. The Trapper has been the number two pattern with hunters, cattle workers and collectors for many years. Case has decided to take the traditional design up a step with a pocket clip attached.
Each knife in this collection is made with Case's own Tru-Sharp stainless steel at 54-57 Rc. with nickel silver bolsters and shield, and brass liners. Both the clip blade and spey blades measures 3-1/4”. Closed length measures 4-1/8”. Weighs 3.9 oz. The handle is smooth yellow synthetic. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested retail $99.40.
