    That Case is a stunner. I love the 11031SH. I have one from the same era.

    I also have one from 1977. The later versions did not have the nice swedge. I think they stopped including the swedge in 1970.

    @paulhilborn I love your new Case! @Travman Nice ones too!! I lost mine from 1976 to customs at the airport not too long ago, such a bummer. Sure do miss that knife. I’d love to get an earlier one with the nice swedge.

    It’s been the 78 for me the last 10 days then in came the 66 today just in time to brighten up this gloomy rainy day.

    How cool Travman, I owned that gem at one time:thumbsup: that one is so unique with those DARK covers:thumbsup: I regretted letting that one go, so I've been looking for an adequate replacement:)

    I think they had the nice cut back swedge till 74 if memory serves? they have the circle CASE shield as well:thumbsup:


    Thanks Dwight:)

    As much as I admire your White Wright Knight, the fisherman in me favors the Kent Fish Knife, Jack.

    There are few fixed blades in there, Ron. That one is by Ed Love; incredibly light weight for its size. The 2OTs were upstairs when we were downstairs. I'll rectify that next time.

    Buzzbait is correct, you've found a rainbow with a fabulous old knife mother lode at its end. Great blades and peachseed on that Schrade and the luscious bone on the barlow - sweet.

    Thanks, and back at ya.

    That's a handy looking hunter, Jeff. The blade looks more like a skinner (e.g., Sodbuster, Plow, Bull Nose) than drop point, but it could be the angle and it looks useful. I've not used ram handles when wet, but i like their looks.

    Thanks, GT. Yes, the cutler is laying on his stomach on board attached to the grinding wheel. Out of your tremendous trio, I'm partial to the peanut.

    Thanks, guys. That pair of 2OTs is pretty special, as they are the reason that I came to Blade Forums. And they are quite handsome, if I do brag. Yes, Dwight, they are like those very iconic boats (I love them!!) and, yes, Dylan, I understand they may have modeled for the Washington Jack.

    Those are really beautiful knives, José.

    Thanks, GT, just some old customs that I found in one of my piles. I enjoy honoring their makers. Yes, the snow persisted. I went out this moring at 11:00 a.m. and coame back in at 3:45 p.m. after a snowshovel-thon. Helped neighbors and then got our vehicles out, but our hill was still too icy to risk venturing out (regardless of 4x4).


    I like that knife and that blade - so useful and compact.

    Very handsome gunstock, Travis.

    Beautiful Cases, guys. Love that walnut, Paul.

    Just peachy, Nick. You and Steve are setting this thread on fire with some of those old beauties, too.

    That Martini was a helpful restorative after a first day of the snow fall. I was "forked" after tending home fires, but nothing like the workout of today. Manhattans were the libation of choice tonight.

    Beautiful knife!

    BTW, what is that shield called? Looks similar to a Corset but slightly different.

    Thank you, Stuart, the Bolus drop point is very sodbusterish, and being a hunter, the skinner blade is just why I got it. Can't wait to try it next fall. The M390 blade is VERY sharp and should do a bang up job on any sized game: a perfect mate to my larger fixed blades.
