    That slimline trapper is a great knife, very handy. I carry one in my left front pocket every day.

    I just acquired a used, but new to me Case 6249 copperhead made in 1976. It’s seen a good deal of use and has pocket wear on the bone handles and staining on the blades. It’s still tight and snappy. Been cleaning, oiling the joints, and sharpening. It will bite you now if not careful. Will be carrying it in my right pocket for the next several days.

    One of today’s, this Tony Bose designed Swayback Jack is an absolutely great little knife.

    Slimline Trappers are really comfortable in the hand and will handle most cutting tasks, this one is just gorgeous. i got pulled into one of my wifes craft classes because they needed a knife to cut wine corks in half, i was the only person with a knife. i was a little worried about cutting 300 corks (not the easiest material to cut) but the slimline came through with only kneeing a blade touch-up, no blade wobble at the end.

    A Case trapper is a perfect pocketknife. Smooth white bone on this one. Gift from my boss.

    Yep, the slimline trapper has grown on me as well. I have a bunch of them now & as you say, W&T is exceptional on all of them.

    Yesterday this Case 6332, today this Case 63087. I'm usually pretty satisfied with a Medium Stockman of some sort. Matt, I prefer the simple shield too. OH
