Welcome to AAPK. You come highly recommended, by Gene, and by your family background. There are a few people here who are familiar with Case knives, and a couple who actually collect them.
I forwarded Gene's recommendation to Bryan who is the owner and overall genius that keeps AAPK running properly and I'm happy to tell you your store has been approved. I'm sure Brian will be in touch with you if he hasn't been already on the process of setting up your store.
While I am not a collector of Case knives I do enjoy using some of them and them also a fan of some of the companies that the Case family spawned, such as Western States and Cattaraugus. I will certainly be looking forward to any information you might post about your family, history and especially to seeing some of the knives and knife related items you have.
Many of us here on AAPK who collect knives are kind of amateur historians by default, we have to be researchers and recorders of history because there are so few companies that have a good documented history, Case Cutlery being one of the notable exceptions which might explain why they are one of the most collectible brands of knives today. The inverse is possible also; their history is well-documented because of their popularity!
I am hoping you will post an outline of historical information as well as Interesting facts and stories. I had never heard of Burrell Cutlery before today! It's always exciting to me to learn something new. Thank you very much for joining. I'm looking forward to your posts and your store.
If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a PM or email, whichever one you are most comfortable with.
