Knife was given to me in 1972. It’s a “Western” brand. Still holds one heck of an edge. I grew up with it by my side. Just found it the other day when going through an old ammo box. Sheath is a 1975 shop project. Great memories!

These are two very, very old Case knives that belonged to my grandfather. The tan colored bone handled one was my first pocketknife from my grandfather when I was just a youngster. He carried the red colored handled one up until his death in 1974.
I dated them some years ago, the tan colored one was made in the 1940's and the red colored one was made in the 1930's.
My first three handmade knives. First one shown was given to my brother for his birthday. Second one shown, was given to my father for his birthday. The third one, is a present for a very good and dear friend.
