  1. Slimline tonic...Review by

    As a pocket friendly design, this one is very useful in terms of the blade reach and light weight. The versatile clip blade is well suited to many tasks. The satin finish hollow ground blade is easy to keep sharp by stropping or an occasional touch up on a Sharpmaker.

    I find that what Case refers to as their 'as ground' finish makes a blade perform very well. I think the slightly coarse satin-type grind adds a toothy quality to the edge (just my opinion) compared with Case's more usual mirror polished hollow ground blade. Or perhaps the high lines of the grind translate into less drag and material contact with the actual sides of the blade. Just a guess. At any rate, this knife easily cuts, slices, and pierces. I have the same model in Yellow CV with a polished blade which by now has a naturally developed patina. Also a great performer.

    Side by side, they're both excellent working blades. But compared to a similar polished blade on a stainless Stockman, the coarser finish of the 'as ground' blade seems to give it noticeable effectiveness. Again, a toothy eagerness.

    The stainless Slimline Trapper is easy to pinch open, thanks to the rougher finish and the squared back of the blade. Good news if you don't always find it easy to locate and use a nail nick. One hand opening is also relatively simple, just pinch and push, and away you go. Not lightening fast, but also without the sheeple-stampeding flair, flourish and SNAP! of an assisted opening, flipper, thumb hole, thumb stud, etc type of folder.

    But OHO is easy and at times practical with this stainless model. More so than the rounded and polished CV model, even with its patina. Be aware that hard use may scratch the 'as ground' finish. Mine has a few honourable scars, but, come on, it's a working knife not a showpiece. And it works just fine!

    The blade spine is made with slightly sharp corners. In a good way. Pockets are not at risk nor are fingers, at least not from the back of the blade (ha). But the crisp corners makes the blade into an excellent scraping tool. For extra effectiveness, pinch both ends of the blade and use it to strip bark off small branches of green wood, remove paint or varnish from the edge of some types of woodwork, or even to quickly shave down a sticking door. Go with the grain.

    The Slimline Trapper is the slender cousin to a full size Trapper, but without the bulk and weight of its double bladed relative. This pattern is a personal favourite. At times it has also been marketed by Case as a Utility knife, or a Farmer's knife. Because of this it has a lengthy agricultural heritage as the farmer's friend. But it would suit anyone wanting a slender lightweight traditional slipjoint.

    Supple yet sturdy, the Slimline Trapper will firmly hold your attention!

    Great little knife - cutting edge is just less than 3 inches so I choose to EDC it. Not a mirror polished blade but other than that very good fit and finish for everyday use. Very unobtrusive, but difficult to open if you have short fingernails and not much of the blade sticks out of the handle when closed. (Posted on )
