Product DescriptionGerman Eye Brand Trapper, 2 1/2" Carbon Steel Blade, Yellow Bone Handle
Reviewer's note: Great using knives with hammer forged steel. They don't go to alot of trouble to fit and finish. Expect minor imperfections. Handle pins are not domed and spun, just hammered down. Best carbon steel around. A favorite with Ranchers in Texas!
Hammer Forged blades: Eye Brand Knives is one of the few companies that still uses the age old method of hammer forging its blades. Most traditional knives today are cold stamped, but Eye Brand still forges the steel to shape. Hammer forging compresses and realigns the blade steel's grain structure, thereby increasing the toughness and edge holding characteristics of the knife blade. It is a more costly and time consuming process, but worth the effort.

They are well worth every bit of the comparison between them, Case, GEC. All three are good in their own way. But if you want to take a big step up into a level of their own, Eye Brand will not disappoint.
