In many ways, the Urban Trapper is the ultimate gentleman's knife: it's lightweight, slender, classically inspired, and as capable as it is good-looking.

I just got this knife and I have absolutely fallen in love with it. It is deceptively light. It has an amazingly smooth flip action and once you get past the detent in closing, it drops closed so easily. It is slim and super lightweight, you'll barely even notice it in your pocket. I'm left handed and have no problems at all carrying it in my left pocket. This is my favorite folding pocket knife in my collection as of right now
I purchased this to carry as a work EDC in my slacks I don’t even know it’s in my pocket this is in my rotation now would recommend this to anyone who needs a gentleman’s knife to EDC
I got this knife as a birthday present 3 years ago and its like my "dress up" knife. For as thin as it is, its super strong .. I've seen a few people saying its "flimsy" .... Its titanium and VG10 so im not sure if we are talking about the same knife :/? Anyhow I absolutely love it and recommend it if your thinking of getting one. Its one of my all time fav "gentlemans knives".
Very light and slim in the pocket for such a long blade, one of my EDCs and I barely notice its there. Sturdy build despite being so slim. Flips and locks in place with ease, though needed some oil and breaking in. Flipping action is addictive. Is it sharp? ***gasp** terrifyingly sharp... my poor fingers! One thing I always consider for an EDC is personal protection. I live in a developing country where occasionally its good to have something sharp and stabby on hand. I have determined that this knife will also serve as protection, but used with caution as it is not as strong as my usual EDCs due to the light frame design. I got this one with the drop point as I found it more aesthetic in design and was not disappointed when it arrived.
The best size to weight ratio I can find. Nice and thin behind the edge despite the slim blade, yes it's a hollow grind. Excellent fall shut smoothness despite the blade being so light, has a detent ball ramp and track. As to it's supposed weakness, I can only speak for my own use, it opens packages, breaks down cardboard and used an eating utensil and it's never failed or felt unsafe, but I don't use it for tactical operator hard use moose skinning type stuff- my cold steels are for that. It does flex when you squeeze it but not as much as the benchmade bugout.
Light, quiet, fast, and smooth. Great knife for light use. I liked it so much I got my girlfriend one too. She uses it all the time for little tasks. Well made, completely worth the money. Only problem, the clip bent out of shape.
I have personally had no problems with my Urban Trapper, but a coworker also bought one with questionable action. I love the look and fit in pocket and hand. The blade finish is very nice looking. When I received my Urban Trapper it had the worst edge finish of any knife I've ever purchased, but that was of little consequence to me since I had intended on putting a fresh edge on it. The action on mine has not changed over time - still well centered and very smooth. I think that I purchased mine before the price went above the $70 mark, so especially stoked about the overall value.
Index finger when griping knife push against liner lock opening it possiblely and for sure loosening it. The knive also flexes a great deal because is supported by only one post spacer. This also weakens the lock integrity. I have been down with health issue so it too late to return this bad product. Too bad because I would. Don't buy it.
