Reviving this thread because I just gambled $12 on the sawcut Delrin trapper at Lowes.
It's actually very good. Backsprings are all flush, both opened and closed. Plenty of snap. Blades are as sharp as Case ships theirs these days. No gaps anywhere. Very comparable to a USA-made Schrade Old Timer.
It's better than any slippie I've bought in a tool store in years.
Dunno about the little one-bladed bone-handle slippies or the lockback. And the linerlocks look like the usual silliness. But this trapper is alright. I'm pleasantly surprised.
BTW, we were shopping around for a floor-standing drill press because my wife had to have one.
Married right this time. We wound up with a Ridgid 15" model.
