UR­BAN TRAPPER DA­MAS­TEEL

Recoil - - Unusual Suspect -

411:

This is a mod­ern­ized gen­tle­man’s knife based on the tra­di­tional trapper folder with a blade made by Da­mas­teel. The lad­der pat­tern is mes­mer­iz­ing, while the edge slices with ease and the tip punc­tures like a nee­dle. Plus, the skele­tonized frame­lock han­dle is made of ti­ta­nium. So why is it just $309 when its com­peti­tors are twice that amount? It’s made in China. For­tu­nately, Boker puts out qual­ity prod­ucts no mat­ter where they’re made.

PROS:

Lav­ish-look­ing gen­tle­man’s knife Light­weight and slim

Flip­per tab open­ing is fast and smooth. Un­like other frame­locks that un­lock awk­wardly, this closes as eas­ily as a liner-lock.

CONS:

Han­dle might be too thin to get a com­fort­able grip for those with large meat hooks
