    Case has to be my favorites considering they have their own shelf, minus my one and only GEC tucked in the back. Pardon my terrible photo skills.

    I have bought and sold many many Case knives over the last 10 years to help support my knife passion but these are my current heard.
    A Torpedo, a couple of Jacks and this older Hawbill that was rehandled in mammoth ivory, with new red liners for me several years ago.

    I have a lot of Case knives, most are post-1990, but I have a couple of dozen that are pre-1980 - I enjoy collecting, displaying and using them. The most surprising one of all to me has been this Bose inspired Saddlehorn; I bought it on a whim last week, used but like new from a pawn shop for a very decent price. I dropped it in my pocket with the intent of carrying it for a day or so and then putting it away. To my surprise it has been a near constant companion - I really like the design. The blades are thicker than most modern Case knives in the same size range, sharper, the snap is just right (opening weight is about a six and the closing snap is very positive), this knife is a near equal to many of my GEC's - just a very nice knife that is comfortable in the hand (also a surprise based in the look of the pattern). OH

    What, ALL of them? I don't have pics of most and very few group shots.

    Here's a few:

    Limiting it to those I already have some group shots of. I am way behind in my picture taking.

    Ooh-- could we please see more of that appaloosa-bone jack there on the right? What's its overall length, or thereabouts?

    (Have I mentioned lately that you have excellent taste in knives? :D)

    Robin, thanks for starting this thread. Love seeing the knives, old and new. Great pictures. I'd like to chicken-eye and coon-finger that Gum Fuddy jack... and those saddlehorns.

    I love Case knives (old and new) - this is a great thread - lots of eye candy! Thank you for the compliment on my Saddlehorn Singin and thank you Pipeman for starting this thread up - I hope it goes 80 pages or more. Here are my oldest and my newest Case knives (bought the 2013 last week). OH

    I agree. I love all the different possibilities, seeing what draws others' attention and affection, and continually distilling my own preferences (and often having them o'ertaken by something I hadn't considered before...).

    You could have just said, "...and is the perfect length" and that's what I would have guessed! :D

    So, in addition to excellent taste in knives, you have very good friends. Or at least one. ;)
    What a beauty, in every aspect. Thanks much for the additional pictures. :thumbup:

    My own Case knives are all new (2000 on, I believe), but I shall rustle them up for a group picture soon.

    The 6201 was my 2nd knife and very first Case I bought when I was eight.

    I'm not a fan of the currant almost illegible Case shields, I like the 1970's shields best ( bottom right ) and the 1980 ( bottom left )
