Master knife maker Bill Ruple has been making knives since 1988 and specializes in making high quality slip joint folders. Bill has instructed and inspired a countless number of custom knife makers and continues to deliver exceptionally fine folding knives. Mr. Ruple only makes a few knives a year lending a high collectors value to his pieces. The elegance, simplicity and top level fit and finish has to be seen in person to be truly appreciated. This custom single blade Trapper comes with brushed stainless steel bolsters and liners, Jigged Bone covers and a hand rubbed satin finished CPM-154 blade.

Blade: The sweeping clip point blade is made from American CPM-154 and then hand ground to a fine, hollow ground, recurve cutting edge. A long swedge is added for both style and performance. The blade is finished with a handsome, hand rubbed satin and opens via a generous nail nick The moderate spring tension delivers smooth operation with a half-stop for safety and excellent walk and talk.

Handle: The trapper style handle is constructed of brushed stainless steel liners with dual integral bolsters front and rear with jigged bone covers for a warm, organic feel and added traction. The fit and finish is seamless with a stainless back spring for snappy operation.

Comes with a padded nylon zipper pouch for storage and transport.
