appears to be coming through the bone. The brass liners and pins look good and the bone is in good shape, I'm at a loss on this one.
Knife is a Case 54 pattern made in the 80's.

Due to bad experiences with other types, I've found alternate storage. Other than Sackups, I'm done with rolls. Except for transporting knives from place to place, like to and from a show (which I don't do much of any more). I just don't trust what harmful content knife rolls may contain - chemicals, dyes and so on used in their manufacture may outgas over time. I've had knives damaged by leather and elastic materials in knife rolls.
I do use and endorse Sackups. I've used them for years for knives and firearms without a single problem. But I guess I don't think of them as conventional "rolls". Sorry I can't say the same for others. As I said, learned the hard way and it's a hard lesson when you open that roll and find your knives damaged.
