Pros: Blade Material, Blade Sharpness, Handle Material, Overall Quality
Great small daily user!
The mini-trapper is a great pattern. The difference in the two blade shapes gives great versatility, with the spey-blade making for great slicing power, while the clip-point will get in tight places, and has great penetrating power. The saw cut amber bone scales look fantastic. The CV blade steel takes a razor edge with very little effort, and will hold it longer than Case's stainless by a long while. Just be sure to keep a light coat of oil on it, or it may rust. The blades also feature a solid half stop, which is a nice safety feature, and allows the blades to be closed safely with one hand. The size of this knife makes it disappear in your pocket, so it is great to always have. You'll forget it is there until you need it, and then the combo of two blades means you have the right blade for the task at hand, no matter what it is. Case's quality control has had issues in the past, but this knife is a sign that things (to me at least) are back where they should be.
