    Good grief.... I think that fully 60% of my knife collection has some kind of wharncliffe on it, either primary, or secondary..
    I prefer my wharn's to be on the shorter, more blunt side, rather than long and sleek. Something about like this imported swayback..

    My beloved GEC Viper -- old no.34, from 2014 -- is my only traditional Wharncliffe. It's a great utility cutter, and the blade shape perfectly complements the Swayback handle. :)

    Seeing the guys post their #55's in the Tidioute thread has me wanting to post my Northfield.

    I really like the Wharncliffe, and think this Case version is especially well-designed, and useful!!:cool: Seahorse Grp to Ore 1.jpg

    Thank you so much. :)
    I searched long and hard for that knife.
    In the end, a generous forum member sold it to me a at a very reasonable price.

    Technically, that would be a "herd" of seahorses....:D

    I really like that Case Brothers at the bottom...great bone handles

    I'd post a picture of my beloved old Case swayback gent, but I am ashamed to expose myself after carelessly rounding off the tip on the sharpmaker - instead here's a picture of my old reliable Case Mini Copperhead and a new addition - the GEC 62 Congress -- the Case really packs a lot of blade comparatively!

    My first venture into G10 ... has a real nice tactile feel to it, seems lighter too --->

    Two really great knives right there.
    Your #55 and mine are practically twins, except yours has the Liner Lock. :cool::thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:
