Urban Trapper 42 Gray Titan, Satin is a folder with remarkable design, made of very good materials at an attractive price. Designed by American knifemaker Brad Zinker, a member of The Knifemakers Guild, who specializes in handmade custom knives. The Urban Trapper 42 Folder is the perfect compact E.D.C.. It features a smooth, dynamic action of the blade-opening mechanism, a clip point utility blade, a deep carry clip and extremely light weight (48g).
VG-10 - Japanese stainless steel produced by Takefu Special Steel co. Ltd. This steel maintains a great compromise between long sharpness retention and easy sharpening. High resistance to cracking and chipping. Hardened usually in the range of 59-63 HRC. Due to a very restrictive export policy, virtually all knives (or their blades) made of this steel must be manufactured in Japan.
Blade - clip point type finished by Satin method in excellent Japanese VG-10 steel. The generous belly extends the length of the cutting edge in relation to the length of the blade converging towards the needle-sharp tip of the knife in combination with the high concave grind (Hollow Grind) gives cutting properties almost on the level of a razor. The blade is set on ball bearings supporting the work of the opening mechanism, thanks to which the folder can be efficiently unfolded by means of a milled recess in the blade (Nail Nick). The whole is locked with a proven frame lock.
Handle - chamfered titanium facings with holes characteristic of Brad Zinker's designs all over the handle. To stiffen the construction they are bolted with spacer sleeves so that we get the characteristic Open Spaced construction. Simple, solid construction gives you the assurance of many years of use. A single-position right-handed metal deep carry clip allows you to carry the knife discreetly in your pocket in tip-up position (blade tip up). This design and the use of excellent materials resulted in an extremely low overall weight.
Böker Plus - the most advanced series of knives in the Böker range. Well-known names in the knife industry were invited to collaborate on the design. The range includes fixed blade knives, folding knives, automatic knives and a wide range of accessories needed by a knife lover. Modern materials, German quality, all this makes the knives of the Böker Plus series trusted by customers.
