Description
BO01BO730: Boker Plus Urban Trapper
Boker Plus
 
Although we have seen many products over the years, resourceful knife makers continue to find ways to surprise us. For instance, Brad Zinker from Florida with his Urban Trapper, one of the thinnest profile titanium framelocks we have ever experienced. At a mere 8 mm grip thickness (without clip), the term "slim" only inadequately characterizes the Urban Trapper for its usable size. The large holes in the titanium handle transform the Urban Trapper into a true lightweight that can be extremely conveniently carried in a suit pocket or light summer trousers alike. Considering the minimalist overall design of the knife, the size of the flipper is equally sparing. When used, it impresses nevertheless with its outstanding functionality, and reliably opens the ball bearing hinged VG-10 blade. The blade shape of this classic trapper pocket knife, widely distributed throughout the US and worn by Brad Zinker for many years, was the inspiration for this unusual piece.

Pros: Blade Material, Handle Feel, Handle Material, Overall Quality, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Blade Sharpness
Cons: Ease of Opening, None
Dress Pocket Knife
This is a beautiful, thin, sharp knife that is so lightweight is can almost be forgotten in dress slacks. The only problem initially was that it was difficult to open. After slightly springing the locking tab, it is now very easy to open.

Dress Pocket Knife
The knife is beautiful, ultra-slim, and so lightweight as to be forgotten. A 3 1/2" blade and it doesn't even show up in dress slacks. Only downside is that it was very hard to open initially. I was able to spring out the lock clip slightly and not it works quite well.

The flipper us actually very functional
This is a great light EDC knife especially when you factor in the relatively low cost. It's merits can be garnered by reading the many positive reviews available at various online outlets, thus I don't need to add anything to them. However, despite otherwise great reviews, I consistently see the remark that the flipper is inadequate and requires the fingernail to flick open. This simply isn't true. When I first received the knife I treated it like the reviews said, practicing opening it with my fingernail because it seemed like opening it with the finger tip would be uncomfortable or unfunctional. After some time I decided to forego that method and try it the finger tip way and found it to be quite functional. It's not uncomfortable unless you're some kind of wuss and is MUCH more practical (plus you won't chip a nail, you girly-men). After the break in period it becomes even easier. It is my recommendation that the buyer not let the flipper deter them from purchasing this excellent light EDC, but to open the box with no preconceptions of how it should function.
