    A practical guy and his SAK

    I'm a bit of a minimalist. A Vic Tinker does all I need done. As a professional carpet cleaner it's dang near perfect. I can unclog my vacuum cleaner, repair vacuum hose, open product lids, cut stray yarns, unclog the slots in my wand, remove a splinter, cut my fruit and 100 other things I might...

    I think I may be done

    I too have found my sweet spot in the Case Texas jack. I tried a peanut and it will usually get the job done but since I am a fruit-a-holic it's just a bit easier to slice a big ole apple with the bigger jack. Not to mention, Case does a nice two bladed knife in the jack or peanut!

    Buying patterns you don't like

    Well I have a goal of owning one of each Case pattern for a display I'm building out of old barn wood so I have bought a few that I would never carry, like a teardrop. It's an odd design, yet has a sleekness and beauty to it. I also have a nice full size trapper that is just way too big to carry...

    How small can you go ? ( a fun experiment)

    The Yellowbelly is one of my favorite carrys. You get nice heavy duty blades in a medium package. Tony Bose did a heck of a job designing those. Gotta love some yeller Delrin!

    How small can you go ? ( a fun experiment)

    I bought a Case Yeller peanut in CV a few weeks ago and so far it has done everything I needed it to. The nice thin CV is just an unbelievable slicer. The short length of the blade does require some creativity to cut up a large apple but it cuts through it like butter. It's the sharpest out of...

    The One That Got Away

    When I turned 15 I inherited my Grandad's 1964 Ford Galaxie which my Dad also drove many years. Well I was cleaning out a little area where the bottom of the seat meets the upper part and lo and behold there were at least 10 pocket knives that my Granddad had owned and they had slipped out of...

    Things you've warmed up to

    Stag looks so much nicer in person than in pictures. It never caught my eye either but my wife bought me one for valentines day and I was blown away with how nice it was on my Case medium stockman against those nice shiny bolsters.

    Things you've warmed up to

    For most of my short knife collecting career I would only buy stainless. Well I recently bought a Case peanut in CV and I have to say the grey patina forming on the blades looks quite nice against the yeller handles.

    Knife for in the garden

    A $30 Case Sodbuster in stainless steel with yellow or orange Delrin handles might be a good choice.

    Cult of the peanut , members

    Bought my first peanut this week. Yeller CV. Love it so far. I sort of wish I would have ordered one in stainless but I like to buy local if possible. They are great slicers and the box shaped handle makes it feel larger. I also love that there is separation between the blades being a two spring...

    Sodbusters

    Sodbuster Jr. from Case has become my favorite. I have one in orange for working around the farm and one in ocean blue for going out or to church. They are great slicers and heavy duty. The handles give you plenty to hold on to and are very comfy to hold.

    Converting a stockman to a jack?

    Thanks for the replies. I might just turn it into a single blade for the fun of it. It's a Sparxx white medium stockman and after I got it I just wasn't too thrilled with it so I figured I would do something with it to spice it up a bit including dying those scales. I'm thinking a jet black...

    Converting a stockman to a jack?

    Well with my carpet cleaning business at a standstill, I have lots of time on my hands so I was wondering if anybody knows if it's possible to turn a medium stockman into a medium jack? I have never taken a case knife apart but I always love learning how things work. I want to put the pen blade...

    Why do we love knife so much? Seriously why?

    Besides the usefulness, for me it's the nostalgia as well as the identity that comes with knife ownership. The kind of knife I carry is part of my personality. I like things that are basic and utilitarian, therefore I carry work knives like a Sodbuster Jr. or a Case Sowbelly in Yellow Delrin...

    Sowbelly Stockman

    It's a little heavy, but a really well made and beautiful design. You know when you are holding it that you have a heavy duty tool in your hand. The Yellow Belly.

    BEST tool on a SAK besides the knife?

    I've got to have an awl. Only because it's the perfect tool for unclogging the slots in the Teflon glide on my carpet cleaning wand. Love my Tinker! I love the flat screwdriver too for making quick vacuum cleaner repairs. Perfect EDC for a professional carpet cleaner.

    When did Case start making the Sod Buster model?

    I never in a million years would have seen myself carrying a sodbuster but I ordered an orange handled sodbuster jr. and it has become my favorite edc. They are unbelievable slicers and the jr. is just the right size for a front pocket. Lightweight too, not to mention I'm a huge fan of delrin...

    New Knife Smell and box

    I don't know because my wife always opens them up before I get home. She even took over my ocean blue sodbuster jr. recently. Doggonit!
