The TrapperLock (‘154L) – Case’s New Single-bladed Liner Lock

Bradford, PA (January 15, 2009) – Knife fans span generations, and Case’s newest knife pattern offers something for people at any age.  The new Case TrapperLock (‘154L) offers one of the knife industry’s most traditional pattern shapes with a more modern liner-locking Clip blade that opens with just one hand.  The new Case TrapperLock will be offered with a stainless steel blade in Pocket Worn® Old Red Bone, Genuine India Stag, and Rogers Jigged Mediterranean Blue bone.  Smooth Yellow Synthetic and Standard Jigged Chestnut bone handle versions will be offered with a Chrome Vanadium (CV) blade.  

The new Case TrapperLock measures 4-1/8” when closed and weighs 3.4 ounces.  It features a one-hand opening Clip blade made of Tru-Sharp™ surgical steel or Chrome Vanadium steel.  The blade is saber, concave ground and fitted with a specially-engraved torque screw for smooth one-hand opening.

Several unique pocket knife features have been engineered especially for this ground-breaking pattern at Case.  A special bushing built into the knife joint ensures improved blade action.  A steel spacer replaces the blade spring normally found on a traditional Trapper pattern, enhancing the TrapperLock’s visual appeal.  Other features include nickel-silver end bolsters and a Case oval shield on the handle.    

The Trapper has long been one of the best selling knife patterns at Case, and the new TrapperLock is destined to be a hit with knife enthusiasts of all ages.  

“Case has been very successful in redesigning traditional knife patterns for the good of the consumer knife industry,” says Ed Jessup, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Case.  “It is our mission at Case to add special features and functionality to our products for those who carry and use them every day.  We’re very pleased with the way the TrapperLock has turned out and we’re anxious to see the reaction to it.”  

A Pocket Worn® Old Red Bone TrapperLock has just begun hitting dealers’ shelves in time for the holiday season. A Genuine Red Stag handle variation will be offered as part of a limited production promotional family, scheduled for delivery late in 2008.  The TrapperLock will be offered in several handle/blade combinations in Case’s 2009 Product Guide; Genuine Stag, Long-Tail C Mediterranean Blue Bone, Pocket Worn Old Red Bone, and a John Deere licensed version with Yellow Bone handles will all be offered with a stainless steel blade. Two variations – one with Chestnut Bone and another with Yellow synthetic handles – will be offered with a Chrome Vanadium blade.
