Large Single Blade Trapper

 The knife pictured to the left is the one I carry everyday.  It has stainless steel double bolsters, stainless steel liners, hand-jigged and honey-dyed bone handles.  The blade is ATS-34 stainless.

 

The trapper is one of the most carried knives in Texas because the blade can be used for many different tasks.  The blade is heat-treated to 61 on the Rockwell scale.  All heat treating is done in-shop.
