Wow - I didn't even know Case had made any leverlocks. That is pretty darn cool. I wonder if the seller had any idea what he had? You would think a collector would have given much more information in the description. It would be a shame if some do-gooder alerts Ebay and the sale is stopped.

Starting price was $599, so I'm guessing the seller did have some ideas that wasn't a $30 knife...

The last one I saw on ebay made it to $2600 before they cancelled it.

Nice knife.

Did you see the Clauss/Case at the bottom of that link? Pretty old nice green bone. Blades used up a bit but a good old gal.

Auction closes in two hours. Currently at 66 bucks. Likely a fine old user with lots of character.

It appears to be a low spot in the stag? I have looked at it enough over the last few days ::paranoid:: but I am uncertain.
