    thanks @Buzzbait and @Whetstone39 !, very helpful. Don't think i'll re-profile (way above my skill level), just some touch-up sharpening in near future. I will definitely practice on a beater before the good ones :).

    Thank you Ray. I have been buying Bret’s knives, new and used, for quite a few years. After I took the pics, I counted. I have 18. I am hoping to get a total of 20. Gotta keep looking.

    I’ve got a couple of Vic florists with that same textured grip, and find it really inviting in feel. Your use of light really brings out that texture. Nicely done.

    Good golly, it is a struggle for me to keep up with this thread, even just to offer simple thank-yous, much less to laud the fine knives being posted.

    Thanks, guys.

    GT, I agree with Harry (@Old Engineer) and Vince (@Prester John) that a folding hunter is a desirable addition, but not essential, unless you ARE A HUNTER or need one to complete a collection theme. Personally, I like the size and functionality of a large folding hunter, and I have many because I like and use them. That Case 6265 is 5 1/4" closed, 9 1/4" OAL. I have larger. They are great workers and easy to hold securely. Here's some:




    Thanks, but I'm relatively new to them, too. Yours has that nice wide spear blade AND a bottle opener - an obviously more desirable knife.

    Ron, I like California clips and spey blades, but I agree with you. Case should have made both variations, as they are great knives. Thanks for the kind words.

    Back to lockback. By the way, I wish Otter would make smaller version of this one with the same lock. This is my favourite knife to take with me when traveling, it works well as a folding food prep knife. Excellent slicer and all round edc knife if I need a longer blade.

    Prester John, what model is that Case Stockman? Does it have flat ground blades?

    Thanks for the punny comments, Stuart! :):cool::thumbsup:

    Thanks, Harvey; I especially appreciate your pro opinion on my photo efforts. :)

    Thanks for your input about folding hunters, Harry & Vince. :thumbsup::) I'll probably get one this summer (maybe a Case in CV and chestnut jigged bone, since I have several knives in that series ;)).

    Jaw-dropping pair, Stuart! :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

    Couple of keen oldies, Jeff! :cool::cool::cool:
