Tim Robertson Trapper Slip-Joint Folding Knife
Tim Robertson is a part-time knifemaker, with a full-time job. He was born and raised in the small town of Thackerville, OK, where he still lives today. Tim started making knives about 17 years ago, when someone told him he couldn’t make a slip joint. Whether you want to call it perseverance, persistence, or just plain stubbornness, he did it. It wasn’t the prettiest thing he ever created, but it functioned, and he knew he could build it better with the next one. Tim was self-taught until about 3 years ago when he was introduced to another maker who introduced him to the knife community. Since then, he has been helped by countless knifemakers, many of whom he is proud to call close friends. Tim primarily builds traditional slip-joint knives and prefers using natural handle materials. His goal is to build the best knife that he can build, and to make the next knife better and cleaner than his last knife. Tim is an Official Member of The South Texas Slipjoint Cartel.
This is Tim’s single blade Trapper slip-joint folding knife. The blade is CPM154 stainless steel, hand ground, with a satin finish. The relieved liners are integral to the bolster and are 416 stainless steel, as are the pins and Federal shield. The scales are two pieces of dark blue Micarta that can look blue or black, depending upon the lighting. There is an ample nail nick cut below the swedge. There is no play in the blade in any position, and it sits centered between the liners when closed. Nice walk and talk too! This would make a great EDC knife. Comes in a Robertson Knife Works padded, zippered case. New from Tim at Blade Show Texas 2023.
