    Pocket knives are extremely addictive. I went out of business on them almost 10 years ago. I sold 60, kept a very few, and I try to stay away from them!
    That's a dandy for sure.

    Cool......................!!
    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming, 'Wow! What a Ride! ~ Hunter S. Thompson

    Nice looking knife.

    I make a living by sharpening knives and other items. Frequently, I will be asked to sharpen collectible knives. I remind the owners that to retain collector value, the factory edge should not be touched.

    You have a good looking trapper. That style was one of my Pop’s favorites.

    That's a nice looking Trapper. I had a collection of about 35 Case knives I had to sell off during a tough time. That's ok though, since I have replaced them with a firearms conglomeration.

    Close to the last of the breed.
    Gone are the days of HIGH quality American made utility pocket knives . Sure Case is still around but Guys collect Case ,, they seldom use them. Nowadays we get foreign made knives with very nice handles and mediocre blades .
    1993 is about when Camillus was making the second generation of the Remington Bullet series for Remington that probably inspired your knife . Bet they made 30 different styles for under 20 bucks. Purpose driven styles and designs are gone and we are left with the omnipresent tactical design for every thing. More interest is paid to how fast they open than to how or if they cut.
    There was a time you could pretty much tell a fella's trade or activity by what style of pocket knife he carried. Your Rimfire Trapper excelled at caping and skinning small game.
