    Hello ,
    I was wondering if the Buck Creek( Germany) knives are as good as Case knives.Trappers,canoes ect type folders. What are some of your opinions. I'm wanting one but is it worth it to buy a Case because they seem to be way more expensive. That's OK if there is a big difference. Thanks for your time.

    if you like the buck creek then take the plunge, the price didnt seem that much cheaper than Case, personally id go with Case as thats what ive been edc'n for 3 years now, funny i never really thought of my CV stockman knives as "hollywood", who knows maybe they are but neither one cost more than $40 and both have been used and carried
    The Case yellow CV lineup would be comparable as would some of the CV amberbone lineup
    Maybe check out Boker. Buck also makes slipjoints that are well thought of, As does Queen or GEC steer clear of Bear unless you can handle first as the quality of F&F is spotty
    case offers alot of niche knives for sure, but also working knives. of which im a big fan
    good luck

    I had 2 Buck Creek knives - both sodbuster style. Didn't think much of them. Would prefer Case any day.

    Could you explain this? I can't figure out how Case is "Hollywood". They have always seemed to be more "working man" knives, well made, functional, and affordable.

    I recently bought a Case Cheetah in yellow delrin and a Buck Creek Swing guard in jigged bone.

    The BC is ok for the money, a little rough around the edges, I don't think I'd buy any more .

    The Case Cheetah was twice the price , but it's flawless.

    I agree, I bought a Case Slim Trapper last winter, you can't get more of a working man's knife than that.

    Thanks for the response. I think a nice Case is in the near future for me. They just bring back memories of when i was a kid. Had a few then, you know how that goes. Well a semi nice case, they can get up there in price.

    I'm not sure what size or pattern you're looking for , but Case is now making their large stockman in yellow with CV blades.
    It's not too expensive either.
    I've been looking at that one for a few months now.

    That's right, he's my dog and he works just fine. His job is to get my beer and have a bad attitude.
    So you've assumed correctly.

    But I digress... what knife would you recommend? or are you just practicing your stand up routine....

    yeah i like to hear some constructive recommendations, im fine with people not liking or even hating a manufacturer, but if thats all youre bringing to the thread well then perhaps read more post less
    he spoke his piece and then proceeded to get funny with everybody posting a differing point of view

    oohhh, just like that dog is great at his job of getting beer but ya might not want to use him to pull you out of an avalanche (st. bernard)-- theres a different knife for every job too. i got a million knives. depends on what yer lookin to do.
    .........no animals were harmed in the making of this quick reply (i love your dog)

    so now youve jumped from vitriol to sage wisdom, judging by your cute responses you feel that the trapper isnt a working knife
    of course theres a million tools for a million jobs, i would love to here your sagely advice on what is an acceptable working knife.
    but then again this might be a case of feeding a troll?

    I'm still trying to understand how Case knives are "too Hollywood". Poop Fungus, in all seriousness, and without animosity, I'm asking if you could explain this description. I've never thought of Case as "Hollywood", but I think that's because I think of "Hollywood" knives as being those non-functional fantasy blades that most slasher bad guys use in horror films. Case knives are very functional, and non-fantasy.

    Hollywood: Sure, Case knives are the Star of the slip joint world. Bradford, PA, hardly a Hollywood, but a much nicer place to visit. :D:):D

    Bradford is just North of me.
    Those Case boys make a fine knife.
