Many thanks Ken!!! Much appreciated!!Mumbleypeg wrote: ↑Mon Oct 21, 2019 2:14 pmThere will likely be some knives and Case related items (hats, coffee mugs, etc) given away. You'll need to sign up (put your name in the pot) for hourly drawings to win something. You'll have a chance to meet a lot of great people - don't be bashful just introduce yourself.
Case will have several representatives there and there will be some Case Collectors Club members. All of those folks will likely be wearing name tags. Lots of Case knives being shown and talked about so bring a few if you want to sell or swap. And there will probably be a couple of Case employees sharpening knives - no charge but you may have to wait in line a few minutes which is no problem - just more folks to talk knives with.
Bring money if you want to buy something - otherwise it's all free! Take some pictures and give us a report. Have fun!
Edit: according to the CCC site the "Event knife" for the Harvey's Hardware event this year is the Russlock. There were 75 made with special customization.
Thanks for the info Chris! Not really planning on buying anything, just taking in the event. I just have an impossible time paying full retain for anything except underwear.royal0014 wrote: ↑Mon Oct 21, 2019 7:37 pmDon't expect estate sale or pawn shop prices ......

I find it best to already have in your mind what you are looking for.
Maybe then you don't get sensory overload from all the shiny !
If the show is small enough, try to make a lap before you buy.
See what you like and note location. Otherwise you might buy one and then find one better.
HAVE FUN !!!!!

Often at the diner's expense, but it is a great time to meet folks and talk knives. And during the event, there may be an auction or three for various Case knives. Sometimes the dealer will have special discounts on Case knives purchased during the event.
Thanks CO!! lol
