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.
I bought this knife for my grandson's 17th birthday. It's slim and easy to carry when you are dressed up, and don't want to carry something that stands out too much. He loved the scales and say's it opens like butter with just a flick of you finger...
I only carry this knife if im dressing up(which isn't often for me). But whenever I do it turns heads. Multiple people have figuratively drooled over it. The action is butter smooth and the fit and finish is perfect.
This thing is a work of art. Long blade with a mirror finish. I'm a wood guy myself so I appreciate the scales. Looks great with my wooden watch and any leather you may have on for that look. Blade itself is still super functional and great. My only issue and maybe it's because I'm not used to titanium but it's sooooooo light weight it feel like I'm going to break it. Flips open like a dream and works amazing otherwise.
This is a strikingly beautiful knife, in materials and finish, and its graceful lines. It is thin, light, and delicate--you could probably break it with your bare hands. It's a gentleman's knife, so be gentle, man.
This knife is absolutely beautiful. I love the wood scales and the deep carry pocket. When you press the flipper tab the knife opens so smoothly, not quite snappy but it just glides open.
One of the best I've ever bought for EDC. Long blade and handle, yet super light weight. Better than my Al Mar. Opens with a flip. Looks "gentlemanly," not tactical. You can carry it most anywhere.
I am bummed I didn't buy this from blade hq because I would have saved 20 bucks. I love this knife so much that it is my main edc knife. It surprised me, lightweight but very strong. I forget that it is in my pocket. I have had it for a month now and I honestly have zero complaints. Everyone I show this knife too wants one. I will definitely be buying more these but from blade hq as they have a better deal and Blade hqs service is better than Amazons.
Super cool knife! But, it needs little tips to open because it has very small square flipper as the fate of modern gentleman's knife...
This is a gentleman's carry knife. Keep that in mind. I really enjoy carrying this knife. I've had it in my pocket daily for about 3 months now. it replaced a 940 that I couldn't keep from breaking the carry clip on every month or so. this knife is light weight, sleep and with the wood scales has a more classic look to it. It's meant to be a semi-stylish light weight gentleman's carry knife. it's blade shape is good for that. I found build quality on my example to be good. centering is good. blade came acceptably sharp. I like the deep carry clip, it has enough tension to stay where it should but not break off if it snags something (looking at you benchmade). it's not a utility work horse type knife. it's not a field knife. it's not a bush craft knife. I did not find the knife to be nearly as rough on my clothes as other reported or as much as any other knife. I suspect this is because the wood scales and the not overly stiff pocket clip. In other words unlike a PM2, a 940, manix, and a few other most costly knifes this one won't pull seams out of pockets after it's been in the pocket a few times. If this knife had some better steel and the liner / scale flex issue was addressed in a way that didn't change the personality of this knife, it would be a 5/5 knife in it's category.
Feels great in the hand; hard to just leave it alone in my pocket. Colors go well together: nice wood, aged looking titanium frame and satin blade. Lock has a good bit of grind against the blade when un-locki. I hope it soon goes away. Point is sharp, but edge is dull. No problem to fix. Over all very nice.
This is one of my most carried knife. It's has 3.5" of cutting edge but feather-weighted. Along with the deep-carry clip, it's hard not to pick this knife in the office. It's also great for food prep. The build quality, however, isn't perfect. It's hard to get the blade centered. If I want it to flip well (btw it flips like a dream), the blade would get too close to one side of the scales. I already have scratch marks on my blade from contacting the scale.
As a knife nut I had to pick up this Brad zinker designed boker just for the looks alone. It's a good knife but has a few issues. Pros: The weight is great hardly notice it in the pocket The blade shape is great The steel is good The wooden scales are very attractive Great pocket clip! Cons: The flipper tab is a push button only style flipper which takes some getting use to. The flipper tab has some sharp corners Relatively weak detent. Doesn't have a steel insert on lock bar so it's titanium against the tang of the blade :( Not a hard use type of knife so don't buy it for that. Overall this knife still gets 4 stars because it's a good knife. I carry this in the office and it doesn't scare anyone and it does its job well. However when I got to go out on calls for work I always switch to a stronger knife. Again still a good knife just know what you're gonna use it for before you buy.
The Urban Trapper looks great especially in the cocobolo wood scale. The long clip point blade is functional and gorgeous. It has a nice deep carry clip and weighs practically nothing. However it did not come very sharp and it does have some lock stick/lock rock issues.
The pivot on this knife has torx head slots on both sides, but it is, in reality only a single sided pivot with the lock bar side being immobile via a D-shaped pivot race. But it has a torx head so what happens? You break the knife. Ridiculously poor decision that. Other than that, this one shipped to me with the side of the blade contacting the liner. I had to pull it apart and fix that before ai could do anything else. That's how ai learned about the looks double sided but isn't pivot. Definitely wont be buying another boker product if they let this one out the door.
I have notice when grip knife in open position your index finger pushes on liner lock opening it. It flexes with slightest pressure. It makes it quite dangerous in use. It looks beautiful but it is poorly designed. I would return it if I could but I have serious hospital issue so it too late. Do not buy it. Also only spacer the whole length of a long knife. Shame I can't send it back.
