This is one knife that I use a lot. The first time I carried it, I was at a horse show. A friend saw it in my side sheath and asked if she borrow it. Of course, I immediately said yes being happy for my knife to already prove its usefulness. About an hour later, she returned it with a bent tip. She used it to pry a broken key from the lock of her horse trailer! Oh well, it is a user! It is also one of Case’s best current production efforts. The action is buttery smooth. I prefer knives without half stops. And the hoof pick works well.
