I'm in agreement here. Unless it was a fluke, Case did not pin shields to Delrin handled knives.

This shield isn’t going anywhere! Have had this knife in my collection since about 1967. Bought it from George Goring for $3.00 at a Detroit gun show. Funny how you remember certain things.

When I was old enough to drive, I went to gun shows pretty much on a weekly basis. At that time most of the shows I attended were the Michigan Antique Arms shows and the Bill Goodman shows held at the local Roma Halls and various other venues. I would hang out at George’s table, ask intelligent questions and look at most of his knives. Eventually I ended up sitting with him behind his table and talking with him about many things, not just knives. I did this for a number of years and we became friends. Got some great knives from George but more importantly knowledge about how the world worked, at least according to George. George is gone now, I don’t attend shows nearly as often as I would like but when I do, a part of me still keeps an eye out for George and his green covered display tables.
