We went to see Jimmy Webb a couple weekends ago. I asked him to sign a trapper for me for obvious reasons.
Jimmy Webb is the songwriter that wrote, "Wichita Lineman".
And yes, I do like Case trappers...These are the ones I have along with the other Case knives I have collected through the years.

Is the top one a single blade knife?
Correct, I call them slimline trappers, not sure if that’s official name Or not
What is the pattern number stamped on the back of the base of the blade?
Yes, Case calls them "Slimline Trapper".
That's the one I had as a teenager in the sixties. Can't remember what happened to it.
I love Trappers but the only one I own is a yellow handled Slimline with a single clip point blade.
I have eight Case Trappers. Most are bone or stag handles and I have one set of Davy Crockett and two other guys. These Trappers are among a full set of 30 Case knives I am saving for my Grandsons to have some day. I will buy more Trappers, They are good knives.
YES, I have been collecting Trappers for several years now. I have 8 of them. I enjoy these knives as well as Sowbellies and Saddle Horns. Collect them all. Have a few other such as two tooth picks and a Stockman or two. I just enjoy knives. Started recently buying some Great Eastern Cutlery knives. Wow am I impressed with them. Some of the best I have ever seen.

Copperlock is my favorite pattern.
Followed by Canoe.
Generally prefer the locking blades though.
But I collect many of their different patterns ... mostly in natural materials but also have a few synthetics.
