While on a fishing trip recently, we happened upon a sporting goods store to buy some bait and whatnot. I have always been a knife collector, and this trapper series Buck really caught my eye. It's sharp as a mother, and it's a perfect utility size. The only thing that keeps it from a full 5 anvil rating is the way it settles in my pocket. After a few steps the knife will fall to the bottom of my pocket horizontally, which it awkward and uncomfortable. If there was a sheath I could buy it would be a full rating. Otherwise, amazing piece of art.
