American-made Case knives have become icons of the EDC community. They’ve been in the hands of outdoorsmen and collectors since 1889, after all, and for good reason. Most important, they’re built to last: The blades are made from Tru-Sharp surgical steel hardened using proprietary heat-treatment methods, and the handles are crafted from natural materials such as bone and hardwood. That’s why World War I servicemen carried Case knives in the trenches, and why astronauts Gus Grissom and John Young packed them for their 1965 space flight. No wonder the Case Collectors Club, founded in 1981, boasts nearly 20,000 members.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of four different Mini Trapper styles. Prices vary by style. See photos below.
Among the most recognizable knives in the Case catalog, the Trapper has been in production since the 1920s. Originally designed for—you guessed it—trappers, this slip-joint knife is equipped with two full-size blades: one clip point, one spey point. (The BoneStag features a Wharncliffe blade in place of the spey-point blade.) While the clip point excels at detail work and the spey point excels at skinning tasks, both blades are designed to tackle a variety of jobs. As with the rest of the Case collection, these gentleman’s knives are not equipped with locking blades, nor are they fitted with pocket clips.
