Description: This large Damascus Trapper by Tobin Hill features feather pattern damascus blades and dramatic mammoth ivory scales. It is an truly amazing folder. 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.
Both blades are formed from feather pattern damascus hand forged by Journeyman Smith Mike Tyre. The damascus was forged from carbon steels, ensuring a keen, long lasting edge. 410 stainless steel liners and the backspacers are meticulously hand fileworked. The blades open smoothly using right-handed nail nicks. They close smoothly with no play, and are well centered. Each blade has a firm, perfectly timed half stop. The 416 stainless steel bolsters are nicely fluted.
Nicely matched mammoth ivory bark handle scales. The ancient ivory combines caramel tones with chocolate veins. The right scale is set with a damascus 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.
