Product Description

With Leather Belt Sheath

"Nothing contributes so much to tranquilize the mind as a steady purpose - a point on which the soul may fix its intellectual eye."
Choosing the correct steel for knife blades has been a difficult decision for knife makers for centuries. A blade must be soft enough to take an edge easily, but hard enough to keep its edge through all the difficult tasks you ask it to perform. Whether for a shepherd's knife or a samurai sword, forged and layered Damascus Steel is known the world over as the best steel for any blade. 512 layers of alternating hard and softer high carbon steel form a superb blade that can be easily sharpened and yet holds its edge extremely well. The forged layers are then acid-etched to bring out beautiful striated patterns of light and dark steel on the blades.

The Bear MGC Co., (now Bear and Son Cutlery) one of America's finest and most collectible knife makers, has produced the steel for this two-blade Trapper folder. The overall length of this Trapper is 3 1/2 inches closed. Nickel silver bolsters, brass liner and stainless steel frame and pins make this knife one you can count on for many years of sturdy service. Shown with Fossil Mammoth Ivory - Cream, with an inlace Sperm Whale shown in Dark Brown. Contrasting inlay Sperm Whale is an option at an additional cost.

Choose a scrimshaw etching as shown below, or add a hand scrimshawed picture of your own boat for a small extra charge. Of course, it comes with free scrimshaw personalization - up to 7 letters.

As an option, we will scrimshaw an etching of a ship of your choice, or your own boat (sail or power)on one side - Just email or snailmail us a picture.

This is an heirloom piece that will be proudly carried - or happily accepted as a fine gift. Included also is a genuine leather vertical belt sheath.
