Eye Brand Carl Schlieper Vintage Large Trapper 5" Closed / Zebra Swirl Resin / Hammer Forged Solingen Stainless ( Pre Owned )
This Vintage Large Trapper folding knife from German Eye features a classic design that is sure to please. The knife has 2 blades made from satin finished Solingen steel and measures 5" when closed. The handles are made from a fun resin pattern and feature a blank shield inlay and nickel silver bolsters.
The smooth action and build rival that of the current line of G.E.C. knives and just have the fun mystique of the logo and being hand made / hammer forged in Germany.

This specific example was brought into the US sometime in the mid 90's by C. Risner Cutlery. The knife pictured is representative of the knife you will receive. This was part of an estate and we got several of this specific model as NOS. Does not include a box or paperwork (as they would have been sold in the 90's)
