Thanks Tiger!!.... it is a dandy pattern for sure..... Please post pictures when you receive yours...
Speaking of the pass around box I haven't forgotten, I've been so busy with work and rain I haven't had much opportunity to get pics taken. On top of that a knife I had ordered just to include was delayed in the mailMy boss picked 2 out and she nabbed one I had my eye on lol. Please be patient with me guys, I'll be starting the next round Sunday. Sorry for the delay!The Copperhead was not at all on my radar until my wife scooped one out of the passaround box here. It is an RR but really nicely built, my wife took to it like a fish takes to water - she loves it! With that sort of enthusiasm, I scooped up a Case one that I believe is from the recent release (got it from @JTB_5) and my wife fell for that one too.
My wife has never been opposed to knives but she has never taken to a pocket knife like these. As a result, I am more than willing to continue feeding that enthusiasm so I will definitely be picking up a few more throughout the year.
Personal impressions are that it is a very comfortable frame in hand and I think Case executed the Clip main very nicely. I'd share pictures but my wife is away for the evening and she took the knives with her.
CASE Copperlock knives as recently released from the vault are different from Böker's, and I think the RR variant is based on that, the Böker is certainly worth looking into if you fancy the pattern Clip/Drop-Point.
Which one did you order? I’ve had a couple of them, a beer barrel, I sold, and a red jigged bone that I still have, but haven’t used and don’t carry.I did not realize that the RR was based off the Boker version - that RR feels great in the hand, so I ordered a Boker version just now. My wife is going to start rolling her eyes hard at me every time I hand her a new knife - she doesn't know the monster she has created .
I personally don’t know, my red jigged bone version is SS but not made in Solingen. It’s a “plus” which I believe is made in China. I’m not a huge fan of their Copperheads so I don’t really pay much attention when I’m looking around.Is there a Solingen made SS Copperhead out on the market today?

Those are beauties, Ed. I do like Case's execution of the Clip main on their Copperhead (not something that I am used to saying, to be honest). However, the pen secondary does feel a bit misplaced compared to Boker's configuration.
