    Guys, what do you consider the “classic” or “quintessential” or “traditional” color for a Case knife such as the Stockman or Trapper?

    Thanks,

    Mitch

    "Yeller Delrin" or "Red Bone".
    None of the current offerings match the quintessential red bone of the glory years, pre-1980.

    I like yellow Delrin, just not enough to carry very often. Bought a "dark red" bone peanut recently for my wife, but it's not like the old red bone. Too bright, even pinkish on the ends. Not for me. Just my preference. Love the amber bone.

    Yellow Delrin.

    Although for their more recent models, Chestnut jigged is stellar.

    Probably the yellow delrin, but I don't have any and really love their amber jigged bone.
    I think it screams Case.

    Amber bone or yeller delrin.

    It might be seen as their stock standard jigged bone pattern, but I think Case do a pretty good job of it. :thumbsup:

    (I still can’t resist playing around with a bit of potassium permanganate solution, sandpaper and stropping compound though.)

    If you know someone who’s handy with a sharp scribe ( @r8shell ), I hear the yeller delrin makes a good canvas for some awesome scrimshawing. ;):cool::thumbsup:

    Right you are, my friend.:thumbsup:

    I’m enjoying having a fellow Aussie here.:)

    (Anyone who wants to see a bit of classic Case delrin in Oz, scrimshawed by our very own @r8shell , just hit this link.)

    I agree about the admiration for the Old School Redbone, but it's hard to find.

    Should mention Jigged Delrin too! a good working-knife.
