Ode To The 07

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

Gifts can be deceiving, Floyd...That may not have been a gift so much as a "Trojan Mini Trapper" or perhaps a Mini Trapper lure designed to seduce you into the Mini Trapper Tribe until the Mini Trapper meat hooks have been firmly set and you can be slowly reeled in. Before you know it, you find yourself scooped up in a Mini Trapper gill net, thrashing about helplessly, drowning in a flood of Mini Trappers, powerless to resist. ::uc::

Either that or it was just a gift. ::hmm::

Thrashing around helplessly pretty much describes me Q. I don't think I can ever focus enough to get hooked on any one thing. Usually my favorite is the one I am looking at. (in everything except wife) I still don't know what I want to be when I grow up. But I do know a gracious gift when I get one and I am appreciative. ::shrug:: ::nod:: ::nod:: ::tu::

:lol: Yeah, me too Floyd. ::handshake::

The latest addition to the obsession. I wish they had swapped the handles front to back but it will be fine like it is. I think I'm going to make this my last Corelon. Way too many different colors and patterns.

Today's addition to the growing pile of 07s. 2018, came in a tin, barn board jigged handles and torched I think. I got it because of the shield. It may be intended to be a rendition of the flag but it looks like a belt buckle to me.

I'll admit that I've purchased knives for lesser reasons than the shield, not much less, mind you, but somewhat less, nevertheless.

But, belt buckle/stylized American flag shield notwithstanding, that's still a good looking 07. Gotta love those Barn Board covers; torched or not, what could be more "American" than a knife with handles made in the style of lumber salvaged from an old barn?

I guess that with these two latest 07 pick ups I have officially embarked upon the slippery slope of synthetic handles (other than the Delrin and G-10 Carhartts, of course). Must admit they sure are pretty; but, I think they'll be my last...I'm just too much of a nature boy. For me, knife handles must be bone, stag or ivory.

You picked a couple of lookers to facilitate your fall from self proclaimed grace. Good Picks. ::tu::

I just noticed I didn't post my latest in this thread. This one is very satisfying. I like it a lot.

John, I hope you don't mind if I 'massage' that picture some. That bone is just too beautiful to hide in a dark corner.

I like the mark side bone on this one...

The pile side...um...well, not quite as nice. (This is an example of what I would call "mismatched").

I wonder what they were thinking when they chose the handles for this knife? ::shrug::
