Case Yellow Handle Knife - Slimline Trapper
Case knives are still made in the USA. That alone should be enough said. I learned a bit from my grandad "you want a knife that will rust" and he always had a sharp knife. The SS theory I already traveled they wont hold an edge even if they will sharpen. I find that granddad was right, rust is a charistics I look for. Treat it like a gun drop on a bit of oil on the hing and blade sometime. Pocket knives sharpen em keep em sharp throw em away get a new one. When I go for it in a time of need / its gota be sharp. If I was doing surgery I might consider SS and somebody else sharpen it. So far the phone has not rang / Just me 2 cents.

Great Knife for Small Game!!
I own an older version of this knife that has jigged plastic handles (working knife group). This is the knife I carry when I'm out in the squirrel woods or kicking up rabbits out of the brush. The long narrow blade makes dressing small game a snap (hence the name "Slimline Trapper"). Mine has a ss blade which requres some time to obtain a sharp edge (I use a sharpening steel), but then stays sharp for a good while. A very useful tool for hunters!

I bought this knife two years ago to replace another Case that I had carried for ten years and then bought it again this year after it had been stolen. This is one of the best knives I have ever carried. It takes and holds an edge with ease and is thin enough to carry comfortably in the pocket of my fishing shorts. The vanadium blade will discolor with time and use but I feel this just adds to the character of the knife. Highly recomended.
