There are no Case knives in my collection yet, but it’s certainly not for want of wanting. The abalone-handled Trapper shown here is particularly unlikely to call my house its home, since it’s fairly pricey (even for a Case) at $180 each. Instead of Case’s usual ‘Tru-Sharp’ steel, this semi-custom Trapper has clip and wharnecliffe blades of 154-CM steel. Nobody ever complains about Tru-Sharp, but the extra-fancy metal in this model calls out the steel geek as well as the Case collector.
And it doesn’t hurt that it looks just freaking gorgeous.
