The Urban Trapper is an awesome knife.
Pros: Fantastic EDC blade shape and size. Super lightweight and the shorter deep carry pocket clip is very convenient. VG-10 is a great moderate quality steel and well rounded across the board. The action is quick and smooth, working from either a downward flick or by depressing the flipper tab.
The marbled carbon fibre is gentlemanly and looks great in the light, with a smokey/watery texture as the light crosses it. The knife arrived sharp and centered with a good fit and finish, and came with a mini wrench for adjusting if you don't already have a tool yourself, or if you want to have a spare for your day bag or car.

Cons: I'd have preferred the blade steel upgraded along with the scales, even if it means a higher price tag. The lock, although titanium, can be pushed vertically into the knife and has some slight lock stick. Not a huge deal since the lockbar is so thin, but I'd feel better if it were more stable. It doesn't create any blade play, but still.

I also would have liked the carbon fiber to be polished better. You can see some machining lines in the right light, which kinda counteracts the c.f.
The knife also lacks a stop pin of any kind, and I wonder how it's going to handle the fast flipping action over a prolonged period of time since it seems the liner lock takes the brunt of the impact.
