I love splated wood and knives so this Cross Knives Lil' Trapper from Pete Winkler via DLT was just perfect. The wood has outstanding spalted patterns with deep color and distinct lines. Handle feels perfect in the hands, big enough to feel comfortable but not bulky. Blade is ground to hair popping sharpness. Can't wait till Nov. 1 to try it out at hunting camp in Texas. Another winner from Pete at Cross Knives and DLT.

I bought one of these knives for myself several months ago and liked it so much I bought another one as a gift for my favorite Alberta whitetail guide. I selected the Cocobolo handle scales with red liners and mosaic pins. He was thrilled with the knife and liked the blade shape and generous handle. Apparently he plans to enjoy the shear beauty of the knife until November at which time I expect it will be put to some serious use. Overall great knife!
