Added a few this week....
That’s so strange. It almost looks like something was wiped across it that triggered the corrosion.
I use desiccant packs, rust prohibitor tabs and Ren wax on all my safe queens. Triple protection from the beast.
Thanks all, it's a mystery. Duncan and I discussed the same thing as to some remnant of oil/oils being left behind, yet I'm very cautious when putting in their place, a "final check" as it were. The logo "etch" is completely gone and the angle of the red rust follows exactly the way the blade lays in the well down

Delightful denim duo!
More terrific thematic tandems, JJ; the knives you post are always immaculate!!
What knife do you typically carry for everyday use?
Your lambsfoot and your team are both winners, John!
Delectable bone, Steve!
Gadzooks! That Brookes & Crookes really Cookes, Harvey!!
Your Barlow is rated XX, Dean! Do you have any group shots of the Case Barlows you've acquired this year? My impression is that you have quite a variety!
Congrats on your new ZT!! Not my cup of tea, but you're obviously very stoked about it!
How was the pasta? I've never tried that brand of fettuccini, but we LOVE Marie's fruit pies (Razzleberry's my favorite)!
Glad to hear that your "no-rain dance" was finally effective, Jack!
Handsome stag/ebony pair!!
Majestic knife, José!
Charlie's cool coal-colored couple of cutters are commendable, Ron!
Impressive French pair, Vince!
I know you have some amazing knives from UK, Spain, France, and US; what country will you conquer next in your quest for world (knife) domination??
Couple of sensational slender stockman patterns, Gev & Paul!!
Hope you had an enjoyable time, Jeff! That Owl Head sowbelly is a stunner!
Love those covers, Buzz!
(Must be tough to get that Warthog off the ground with that massive payload, though! )
Red bone Barlow bonanza, LT!!
That stag RR sowbelly is superb!
Outstanding bone, Paul!
I hope your shoulder rehab is as fast and pain-free as possible.
Big Knife of the Week for me has been a Case amber jigged bone Sod Buster Jr (not really big, but the full-size Sod Busters are big, and by putting my SBJrs in the "Big" category, I get to carry them more often than I would if they were fighting for space with many other knives in the "Miscellaneous" category ):
Miscellaneous Knife this week is a Case mini copperlock (thanks, @Leslie Tomville):
Peanut of the Week is a Case brown Delrin stainless peanut (thanks, Cory):
Stag/Horn Knife of the Week is a Case stag peanut:
Thanks, Gary. Not sure which country will be next. I may obtain some more Spanish navajas, but the ones I want are kind of pricey. I have an Italian stiletto on my list. I find the Finnish knives intriguing. Maybe some more English knives, although the cutlery industry is not what it used to be. May look for some old knives. There are beautiful Sardinian knives I've seen here on the forums. The Portuguese knives are comely too. And I DEFINITELY will be acquiring more French cutlery. I know the industry is not what it was, but it seems to be in good shape in France nevertheless. I know there will be more Laguioles in my collection, little by little.
Very nice choices this week: all Case! Coincidence?
Got this in my pocket again:
I used it last night to cut some twine on a Christmas tree, and then accidentally dropped it on the floor. Dinged up the edge pretty good, but I guess that's the best place for dings. Used some diamond rods (followed by ceramic) to smooth the edge again, and now the dings are gone and my Lag is RAZOR sharp.
@Amir Fleschwund - Thank you Jeff. Ironically, some say the same thing about me. Very nice pair. That F&F is cool and different
@JohnDF - Thank you John. Your Old Timer looks like a perfect jeans small pocket carry.
@JJ Cahill - Thank you JJ. A great looking pair. Love the color of the Schrade cover.
@Jack Black - A lovely pair headed by your HHB.
@Gevonovich - A beautiful pair of MOPs with words to live by.
@5K Qs - Thank you GT. Your Case SB Jr. is a stunner.
@Prester John - A lovely Laguiole, Vince. Since sharpening mine, it’s carried daily. A very useful and practical knife.
Thank you, GT.
Thanks, Harvey. You aren't wrong.
For football watching duties...
Thanks, Harvey. Practical and beautiful. And a great size--fits my hand very well.
Thanks @5K Qs !
I am really stoked with the ZT 0230 and more and more everyday
The Marie Callender’s Fettuccine is really good at least I enjoy it especially for a quick and easy meal I normally add a couple pieces of French or Italian bread with it.
Btw those are some beautiful knives you’ve posted but I wouldn’t expect anything less from you!
It's strange how with all the knives that pass through our hands one in particular ends up being "the one" that speaks to us. We don't choose them, they choose us.
I have a recently acquired Northwoods Presidential in blue camel bone in a pocket slip in my right front pocket.
So true. I have found that I don’t really know how a knife will “fit” me until I have it for a while. Some knives, which look so good in photos just don’t do it for me after I have it in hand. This is the prime reason I buy and sell many knives. And buy certain ones again.
In addition to an Ebony Lambfoot, I slipped this Case 5140 L Stag Lockback in another pocket. .
