Support BladeForums! Paid memberships don't see ads! Scored this Case XX 316-5 SSP at a pawn shop for $5: I'm pretty sure it is from 1965-69 from what I can tell. One just sold on eBay for 50 bucks in much better condition with the sheath, so I don't want to spend a bunch to fix it. The stacked leather handle is in bad shape. I have been trying to bring the leather back to life with pure neatsfoot oil, but it is not responding much, if at all. A piece was broken and it fell off, so it's very loose.( was loose before too). So, I can see if Case will replace the handle(for a charge because I'm sure this would not be covered by warranty), OR I have some antlers that I've been wanting to put on a blade. I have also seen guys redo the leather handles and they come out nice, but that looks a little above my pay grade. I need a nudge to cure my indecisiveness. What would y'all do?
