Its should be Thanks to you my friend!, there are some fantastic knives out here in HJ land! Look forward to your Pics Paul!

Here's my latest, another amazing Charlie HJ. Scariest punch ever made and wonderful colour and jigging on the scales.

Have a great day folks.

Oh Robin, - that just sent me over the edge!...... that's a beautiful knife right there!!

That "tortoise" looks good in the NZ sun, Duncan!! Nice score, Robin!

That Northfield fits perfectly, rinos!

Thanks to you Charlie, simply a perfect knife-you just cant fault it, this fantastic knife is right up there in my collection without a doubt!

WOW, I finally know who has the other one! Great going Duncan, you have the only other Tortoise Shell to exist in this HJ series,,,, in the WORLD!
Thought I might as well revive this thread with showing all mine here. No I don't own any older ones, pretty sure Charlie bought all those,,,lol. BTW Charlie, the Tortoise is still holding on, all I do is watch it everyday! The candy stripe seems to be fine. The first is the Buffalo Horn 1 of 1. You know what the rest are, these shots were all taken tonight btw, so everyone can see current condition.

Perry - thank you my friend, and Oh man...ooops excuse me - just drooled all over the key board!
I love the Candy stripe as well - beautiful!!
That one of one doesn't look right to me - it needs sending my way to check it out, I promise to send it straight back - although I cant guarantee safe arrival - you just cannot trust the post these days! ;)

Duncan and Perry, your HJ's are priceless :thumbup:

Although I love this pattern I only have two. The "Real Harness Knife" was gifted to me by Duncan and to me it is one of one :thumbup:---THANK YOU DUNCAN!!! The #66 HJ I was able to pick up here on the forum :)

You guys are zinging my heart strings with these HJs!!
How can a guy feel so strongly about an old, mostly obsolete pattern such as this one???
They just take my soul to another simpler time, I guess!!

Here's another interesting one. I think it suffered a chip in the blade, so someone just widened the choil to take the chip out - sigh . . .
It still looks pretty good though. Maybe a Case wizard can date this one for me??

Indeed Charlie, a simpler time indeed :thumbup: Nice to know that the pattern still lives on when the times have changed. The punch still to this day serves a very useful purpose. I've done handyman work in my off season for the last 15+ years and the SAK awl was ever so useful. I picked up your #66 HJ earlier this summer and it was such a nice transition from the SAK to it.

Lately I rec'd the "Real Harness Knife" from Duncan just before Christmas and although the punch is noticeably different by design versus the #66 I find I use it in many many applications. Other than using the punch to start a hole, help untie knots etc... I find the sharp side of the punch makes an excellent stripper of wire sheathing :thumbup:

In a nutshell, it may not be used for it's original purpose much anymore but it's nice knowing there are modern day applications it truly excels at :)

I really really like this pattern and see another weakness that will be hard for me to overcome ;)

That CASE by the way is a true treasure as well. Your collection boggles my mind Charlie.

Many thanks for all you do, I hope you don't tire of hearing that time after time but I feel it just can't be said enough.

Charlie, google search turned up this:

"Actually Case Brother's Plant in Little Valley burned down around 1912. They rebuilt in Springville in 1913 but ceased to exist in 1914. So they were in Springville a very short time. That is why Case Brother's knives with the Springville stamp are rare."

I think we should take a little walk down Charlie's memory lane.;) We might as well start at the beginning...
SFO #1 was this teardrop made by Queen @ 3 3/4" with a Cooper punch, came in 4 bone covers... IMG_0708.jpg IMG_0710.jpg IMG_0722.jpg


I'll be right back!

On to the second run, another Queen SFO, this HJ is 3 1/2" closed with a Mayer punch. She came in 3 covers, 75 Goldenroot bone, 25 ebony and just 9 Candystripe. But I believe there was some problems with the Candystripe so I don't know how many are out there. I don't have 1 to show you. :mad:
