Nice to see that beauty again.
Big ole Trapper
I've gone for a long time saying that a conventional trapper is "too big" for my tastes. I have a Rough Rider trapper that I originally bought just to see what the brand was like (it's a nice knife), and a few months ago I bought this Moore Maker sheath at the local knife shop and found that it fits that trapper very well. Last week I came across this Case yellow CV trapper at the same shop and found it quite appealing! Plus, I wanted to support a local business that has been closed for a while due to the "recent unpleasantness." Darn, it's a nice knife, I think as well done as any Case I have. Good pull, good snap, perfectly centered, etc. I like how the spey blade sits so low (the RR's sits higher) and the clip blade has beautiful proportions, perfectly suited to the handle size (the RR is slimmer from spine to edge). OK, I'm a convert. This won't be my last trapper, I'm sure.
Trappers are great. I've got two Case and one Böker, and I love them. Perfect size for the hand, perfect size for the blades, lightweight, and can be carried in the pocket or on a sheath.
Saturday's new Case and Colonial. I thought I had succeeded in straightening the tip of the Case, but it disappeared during sharpening. I don't think I'll bother Case for a shield for this one.
I assumed the Colonial would have some kind of fake bolster, but it seems to be pinned through.
Nice Classic yellow Trapper.

I'll mix up the chalk and epoxy today and fill the shield hole.
