Thanks John, it's pretty much "like new" except for a couple of small pepper spots. Very happy to have it! The 2005 model I have is quite different than this '77, still nice but not the same quality.You can say that again... 70's Case knives are great!
That one looks as new as the day it was made too... Beautiful
Such a beaut'!
What a neck-breakin' looker!6202
They sure do have some heft to them. Nice example!

This one was a nice surprise. It has great fit and finish. If this knife was stamped GEC and had the word Scout in it’s name, the flippers would be selling it for $500! I admit that current Case knives have more fit and finish problems than GEC, but Case dealers have lots of knives in stock. They will work with you to hand select one that meets your expectations. Not a bad deal, and the prices are so reasonable. You might have to spend a little time on the phone or emailing to make sure you get a good one, but there are lots of great Case knives out there.
Really digging’ the red pearl handles and I have been looking at the saddlehorn for a while. I have a question.This Saddlehorn arrived today..... It is a pattern I enjoy with this one making the third one I own..... The blade grinds allow for nice thin blades behind the cutting edges.....
This particular knife arrived in near perfect shape..... Fit, finish, centering, etc are all great..... The sharpening left a little bit to be desired..... But the grinds were even and at usable angles, so it didn't take me long to finish the edges and get it cutting paper like a razor...

I like it a lot. I carried a full size trapper for years in a belt pouch. The thin, single blade sowbelly, rides comfortably in my watch pocket.
