A favorite among Case collectors, the Trapper has been in production since the 1920s and is still a popular and utilitarian jack knife. Originally designed for trapping and skinning tasks, this lightweight is a great all around user thanks to the versatile design. The classic slip joint design offers two large steel blades at the primary end of the comfortable bolstered handle. Great for daily use or an addition to your Case collection. The “barehead” moniker reference the traditional American feature of no bolster at the cap end. This version comes with Tru-Sharp stainless-steel blades and Sawcut Jig Amber Bone covers.

Brand new directly from W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co.

Blades: The standard Trapper pattern, this folder features a full-size clip point and spay blade both at the same end of the handle. Satin finished Tru-Sharp stainless-steel blades have shallow hollow grinds for balanced performance and durability. The blades open smoothly via the nail nick openers with a solid snap from the back spring keeping the blades secure and ready to use.

Handle: Polished nickel silver bolsters top the Sawcut Jig Amber Bone covers for a rustic look and feel. Brass liners house the blades and springs, which deliver snappy slip joint operation. The handle front sports a polished Bombshell shield.

Case Tru-Sharp: Case Tru-Sharp is another name for 420HC, a stainless steel that provides excellent rust resistance, ease of re-sharpening and moderate edge retention while being exceptionally tough for a stainless steel. With appropriate heat treatment, it is said to preform similarly to VG-10 in wear resistance.
