I lost my Case Trapper. I've had that knife for 17 years and it's up and gone. I'm wondering if the new case knives are as good as the ones made back in the day? If not then what full size trapper would you recommend? It would be a daily carry and I use it for skinning coon, fox, and occasionally I'll gut and skin a hog with it.

Case still makes a fine knife, bought several over the past years.

Check out deadwoodknives.com

A yellow handled trapper is always in my pack. It's my go-to. Given to me by my brother.

I really like Moore maker knives. https://www.mooremaker.com/store/c1/www.mooremaker.com

I have had mine since 1994.

Of course, in the last 17 years new steels have been developed. Seems like every year there is a new Stainless Steel produced. You'll just have to do some investigating to see what your preference is.

I'm sure the new ones are as good as the old ones maybe even better.

I like the new stainless Case trapper. I’ve had one in my pocket for 5 years and can’t say anything bad about it.

Me, for a EDC, a Havalon Baracuta. Now if I was to buy a traditional folder it would be a Fry or a Kabisch.

I am a Moore Maker fan, myself. I have several and they are all well-made.

I somehow lose a Case about once a year

At one time, I had 10-12 NIB in my drawer...I'm down to 2

I have wanted but have never owned a Hen and Rooster

My father in law has an extensive collection of case knives. I bet he could replace the exact one that you lost. If you are interested, let me know and we can look and see what he has. I am pretty sure that he has just about any style knife that case has produced over the years.


Let's go Brandon!

Yellow handle carbon steel Case trapper is just about the best knife I own. And I have a few.

Case makes a single blade trapper that is a lock blade, with a pocket clip. I think I may have to buy one.
