The Beauty of Ebay

There were 37 knife patterns manufactured in the early to mid 1990s that make up the Case Classic line of knives. They are the product of Jim Parker's realization of a dream to replicate classic knives of many years past.

The Beauty of Ebay

Postby just bob » Fri Jul 22, 2016 12:34 pm

I think I am right here in thinking this is a Case Classic made in the 1990's? Seller has a lot of explaining to do. How could a knife made of metal lay in the ground for 70 years and not turn into a solid block of rust? Only he can explain that. I'll bet if you tried to tell him the knife was made recently he would be mad enough to fight. The ebay auctions used to carry a warning that said "caveat emptor" which meant something like - buyer beware. Hopefully no one will buy into this story and get torched.

That's a good one. I wonder how he figures that 70 plus years underground if the house was built in 1950?

We had a fellow in Cumming, Ga. by the name of Junior Samples that could reel of those tall tales like that just one after the other.
