The Case Mini Trapper is a traditional classic pocket knife that lends itself to everyday cutting and slicing tasks very well. It even does a fine job with food prep. The long Spey blade is the same thickness along its length. Sometimes I use it to pry with - within reason - something ordinarily to be avoided with a pocket knife. The California clip blade, however, has a distal taper along its length, ending in a fine thin point. Not good for prying but excellent for slicing cuts and detail work. Case's CV steel is wonderful to work with. A few strokes on a Spyderco Sharpmaker produces a very keen edge. Finish by stropping with some buffing compound on an old belt or a piece of non-corrugated cardboard and you have a beautiful sharp edge. The yellow scales are tasteful, not garish, and lend an old-world charm and grace. The half-stops are a nice feature. Overall, this pattern is a great choice where a smaller pen knife, say, the superb Case Peanut, is just a little small for the task at hand. Sits almost unnoticed in one's back pocket, next to a wallet. A good dependable choice for EDC.
