Eugene Shadley Jigged Bone 2-Blade Peanut Trapper
Eugene Shadley has been making collector grade folding knives since 1988. Along with Terry Davis, they literally wrote the book on making multi-blade folding knives. Published in 1997, they co-authored "How To Make Multi-Blade Folding Knives" in 1997. Eugene's work is as collectible today, as when he first started making knives. You will often find him at knife shows, where he frequently sells out. You have to hold one of Eugene's knives to truly appreciate his fit and finish, and his attention to detail. The quality of his knives has been consistent throughout his entire career.
This 2-blade Peanut Trapper was completed in 1997. It is in the same new, mint condition as when it was first made. It features blades made from ATS-34 stainless steel. The main blade is a Clip Point and the secondary blade is a Spey Blade. The frame is covered with two (2) of some of the nicest old jigged bone scales I've seen in quite some time. They are beautifully matched in color and texture. The bolster is integral to the liners, and the frame is made from 416 stainless steel. The shield and pins are also 416 stainless. Eugene's tolerances are tight, and the knife is perfectly executed. Both blades lock up tight with no play, and the seating of each blade is spot-on center in there respective "wells". There are no half stops on either blade. Both have ample nail nicks with comfortable and smooth pulls. The knife is previously owned and in mint condition. The knife will include a signed COA. This is knife number 664, completed 12/30/97. Comes in a felt pouch.
