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.

Cons: None
Perfect discreet EDC
I am a bedside nurse in a hospital with a 'no weapons' rule and a very restrictive policy on allowable knife size. I also need to cut things frequently, usually while one hand is otherwise occupied. Finally, I'm pretty loaded down with tools and supplies already so I don't have a lot of spare pocket capacity. So, I need a knife that is discreet, non-threatening when used, easily opened and closed with one hand, and is light and small enough to vanish into a pocket. At the same time, for my own satisfaction, it needs to be big enough to be useful, which in my book means it'll go all the way through a large orange or reach the center of a normal-sized man's kidney (kidding, I'm kidding!). I have a few knives that were close but no cigar. My Deejo was a perfect size and weight but couldn't be opened with one hand. My Kershaw Scalllion was a one-hander and a nice friendly blue color but a bit too small. After looking long and hard I settled on the Urban Trapper. It's been my EDC for some months now and I couldn't be happier. It weighs nothing. The blade is a high quality VG10 steel that holds a terrific edge. I see some reviewers have trouble with opening this knife but mine snapped open smoothly and convincingly from the start. Because it has a short broad pocket clip that doesn't look like it belongs to a knife I put it in my scrub top pocket behind my nametag and it essentially disappears. If I didn't compulsively flip it open and closed all the time no one would know it was there. I am very happy with this knife.

Pros: Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Handle Feel, Ease of Opening, Blade Material, Weight, Lock Ease of Use, Overall Quality
Cons: None
I've been carrying this knife for a year. It's easy to sharpen and it stays very sharp. I'm glad I picked up this version before they ruined it on the v2 with the grips. I didn't care for the clip and thought it took away from the knife so I removed it. You cannot feel this knife in your pocket. I should have bought two.

VERY nice knife
I also was concerned about the small flipper. The knife did not open consistently right out of the box. But with a drop of lubricant in the right places, the knife immediately began functioning perfectly...and VERY smoothly. Fingertip action was all that was necessary--my fingernail did not come into play at all. The liner lock worked well, the blade is well centered between the handles, and there was no blade wobble. I've only had the knife for a few days, so time will tell. Some of the other reviewers have mentioned that the pocket clip needs to be flatter, and I agree. But I did not have the same problems with it holding the knife too tightly to my pants pocket. The blade is not really a satin finish--it's closer to mirror-polished in my opinion. OK by me, but beauty is always in the eye of the beholder. It was very sharp right out of the box. I expect that the VG10 steel will hold an edge for a long time. The knife is very light, and I'm unaware of its presence in.on my pocket--great for dressier slacks/going out for the evening. Its construction seems a little delicate for an everyday, on-the-job tool. And at 3 1/2 inches, the blade is approaching the limit for a "gentleman's knife." That said, I would love to see a similar model but with a longer blade--in the 4.3 inch range.
