The Boker Plus Urban Trapper, designed by Brad Zinker, was inspired by the classic trapper knife. This folder has a modern spin, boasting contemporary mechanics that allow smooth one-handed operation and improved cutting capability. 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. If you're looking for something sleek to add to your collection, consider this stellar design.
Holds a good edge, light in the pocket, I forget it's even in my pocket.
I really loved this knife at first. A true gentleman's knife that I wore and used it while wearing a suit or slacks. The thin nature really disappears in your pocket. Blade shape and steel are wonderful. Unfortunately, the pocket clip is very bad. Bends like tinfoil and when I tried to push it back to the knife with my fingers, it broke in half. If I could find an aftermarket clip for it, it would be one of my favorites. I feel it is pointless to get another clip from Boker if it is the same garbage it came with. UPDATE Contacted Boker on clip issue and they resolved it quickly.
Like others have said it's a nice gentleman's folder, but it's a bit thin for my liking and felt a bit flimsy.
I like the looks and blade shape of this knife. The flipping action is good, but it's not super. I use it mainly when traveling or picnicking, as a food preparation knife. The only reason that the rating is not 5 stars is that there is some lock stick. Sharpie marker lessens the lock stick, but does not eliminate it.
I love the form of this knife, and I got it specifically as a gentlemans mans folder. This knife is really not capable of anything other than light cutting tasks, which is all I expected of it. The lock is a little sticky, and squeaks when disengaged, the flipper tab is a little short, and not super well designed. Failure to flip happens pretty frequently even when button pushing and light switching the tab. This could be a detent issue, but I think it’s mostly due to the flipper. The titanium clip was a little bit of a disappointment, it’s kinda short and broad, and not very spingy. The clip deformed wildly with only one snag, and I had to go back with pliers, a butane torch, and a dremmel to fix it. The blade is a great shape and the grind is good. Overall it is one of favorite date-night knifes. It’s got a “folding steak knife” look that is fine with to use when eating in public.
