Default Knives, knives... more knives!

Two of my hot rodding buds from high school were on our way to see a guy that has LS motors on a pallet ready to install in any car... we stopped by this hardware store that's been in operation at least 60 yrs & the owner's son is *really* into Case knives! The son is a big Case collector & had these 4 displays of gorgeous collectable knives! Never seen anything like it... I think the cheapest one was about $75!

Wow! That's impressive. Not a collector myself but my deceased friend Leo (his story is chronicled on UDS in the Dodge Coupe build) collected quite a few.
When he went in to the Vets Hospital he left them with me. Later he transferred into a nursing home and thought he could smuggle the several boxes of knives in. Well, the administration found them and confiscated them. Leo died and the collection was never recovered.

Your friends sounds like my mom,bob.
They had to toss her room every week for contriband.
All the stuff they found was returned to me though.
That's a great collection Tripper. Thanks for the pics.

Cases and cases of Cases!

Bobw, that shouldn't have happened. I don't think I would have let the nursing home get away with it...

I love Case knives but lose them faster than I'd like to admit, either that or my wife or kids steal them!
