Description: This Slipjoint Trapper by Tobin Hill features a CPM-154 stainless steel blade and beautifully matched amber stag handle scales. Though Tobin has only been making knives for a bit over 3 years, his work does not reflect the short time he has been at it. Tobin learned to make knives from legendary folder maker Bill Ruple. He is clearly a maker to watch.
The clip point blade features a hand rubbed satin finish. CPM 154 stainless steel ensures a keen, long lasting edge. The spine and backspacer are hand fileworked in a detailed vine pattern. Liners are also hand fileworked. The blade opens smoothly using the right-handed nail nick. It closes smoothly with no play, and is well centered.
Nicely matched amber stag handle scales are set between 416 stainless steel front and rear bolsters. Rather than pinning on separate bolsters, Hill has milled the integral bolsters and liners from one solid piece of stainless steel. The right scale is set with a textured arrowhead escutcheon. Hand domed stainless steel pins are used throughout.
This Slipjoint Trapper is an exceptional knife. Accompanied by a Hill Knives padded, zipper case.
