Jim Dunlap - Trapper (Black/Red LSCF)
This Gents Folder, a slip joint shadow pattern Trapper, is from Jim Dunlap, it features a blade of CPM 154 steel with a hand rubbed satin finish, pull is around 4 1/2 to 5 on a 10-point scale. The scales are Black/Red Lighning Strike Carbon Fiber. The strength and rigidity of the Carbon Fiber allows the knife to be made without liners, so it is an extremely lightweight (approx. 1.1 oz), easy to carry and it makes for a great EDC (Every Day Carry) knife. The blade has a half stop and is flush in all positions. The fit and finish of this knife is on par with knives costing twice as much, if not more.
