What is a Trapper Pocket Knife?


A Trapper knife also known as a “traditional trapper pocket knife” or “old fashion trapper knife” is a two bladed pocket knife with both blades on onside of the knife. These blades are made of stainless, carbon or Damascus steel. The blade configuration is as follows; the largest blade on the trapper is the clip blade and directly behind the clip blade is a slightly smaller spay blade. Both blades are slip-joint non locking blades (the backspring of the knife creates a “snap” that keeps the blade from closing).  Trapper knives usually have two (2) polished nickel silver bolsters. These bolsters can be squared or rounded depending on the exact model.

Trapper pocketknives range in size from 2 inches overall closed to 4.125 inches overall closed. The smallest are considered Tiny Trapper Knives followed by Mini Trapper Knives then Small Trapper Knives and the largest are Standard Trapper Knives.

How to care for your Trapper Pocket Knife?


As with any knife; with proper care maintenance of your Trapper Pocket Knife will insure that your new Trapper will last a lifetime. Follow the steps below and you will be rewarded with a great tool.  

  • Always keep your Trapper blades sharp. It is much easier to touch up a blade with a medium or fine grit sharpening stone than wait for the edge to be totally dull and have to reshape the edge. Plus, a sharp knife is always safer to use compared to a dull one.
  • Clean out the inside of your Trapper knife. Dirt, dust and lint all collect on the side of your knife where the blades lay when closed. Also around the tangs of the blades is a area that needs to be cleaned regularly.
  • Oil your knife. It does matter of your knife has stainless or carbon steel blades. It is important to keep a think layer of oil on the blades and pivot points of the knife. This will keep your Trapper blades moving properly and will help prevent rusting.
