I may be wrong but I don't recall seeing a dedicated Case thread.
Here are few to start the thread.

Case and son wreck from 1901 1904 ish.
A big 6231 1/2 1965-69 that I just traded for.
Medium stockman
two mini copperheads
three carbon yellers.

Have a great day folks

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.

Thank you very much Pertinux! It has been years in the making I guess. Learning is always fun when knives are involved.
The Case you're talking about is known as the 35 1/2 measures at 3 1/4 inches closed and gifted to me by a friend a few years back.
Never used or carried and snaps like a gator!

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...).

The Case you're talking about is known as the 35 1/2 measures at 3 1/4 inches closed and gifted to me by a friend a few years back.

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 )
