    But it's the perfect size! I notice that the younger generation generally carry their smartphones in their pockets (I use a belt holster), and a trapper is much smaller than a smartphone. My trapper weighs only 3.8 oz, two ounces less than my iPhone 7. It's more noticeable in the pocket than a Vic Classic, but when I carry a Vic nowadays I carry a Tinker or a Spartan, which are comparable to the trapper in size and weight, I think. At least to me any differences are negligible. But I'm from Texas! :)
    I was only referring to the first one in 1836, when Texas became an independent republic.
    Thanks, Gary!

    I just assumed it was because @5K Qs hasn't seen the Moore Maker Jumbo Trapper! That thing is a beast, but the one I saw wasn't as well made as my 4 1/8". Other than secession from the Union, I believe Texas is the only state with a declaration of independence. Because TX is of course the only state that was a country when we entered the Union.

    Not about me today. Texas Gulf Coast weather + hours on the mower means Ti and CF with a pocket clip. But, Kim is working with a couple of nice traditionals today. Spinning some yarn this morning with the MOP Case Mini Trapper I got her for Christmas.



    Kim needed new pruning tools. This showed up in the mail Friday :). Case Hawkbill in amber jigged bone.

    @5K Qs Thank you GT. Looking forward to you posting your @r8shell scrimshaw knife. I’m certain it’s beautiful. A thread about conversation starters is a winner.

    @Jack Black - Love the Image showing your backyard.:D A Ram Horn Lamb is a brilliant idea. I’m already queuing.:thumbsup:

    Found another TEW Barlow. Wow. It’s a beast of a knife made to last.

    Also carrying...
