Here is a Case Trapper I picked up recently that I think is cool looking.

Just scored this lot of Case knives. I really only got it because it was a great deal and for the 6202. I'll probably be selling a couple of the others.

the 62055 is a Medium Cattle knife, the 6246 I believe is a half Whittler and the 3249 is an ez-open Copperhead with I think a Wharncliff main.

 6202 1/2 CV in brown jigged bone -  62055 CV in brown jigged bone - 6246 1/2 SS orange jigged bone -  3249 EZ CV in yellow delrin

(Image removed from quote.)

Holy smokes! If you decide to sell that Copperhead, let me know!!!!!

My dad had many knives through his life. He died unexpectedly at 42 and he had his favorite knife in his pocket...a Copperhead. They just seem like a tribute to him when I carry one.

2. I feel that the blades are a bit overpolished. The corners, grind lines etc, look a bit too rounded. Conversely, the Bose line has some really sharp grind lines. I know it is due to a different line of steel and blade making techniques...I jus think the sharper angles look professional.
...

That's exactly what put me off them for years. It was only when Nix sent me the Texas Jack that I really appreciated them for what they are - good American made working knives with decent fit n finish and a great history and heritage.

Recently, I've been looking at vintage ones, especially 60s, 70s ones - they really do it for me, they seem to have just the right balance of form and function and they're reasonably easy to pick up in good condition... I may have bought a few.  :facepalm:

Look at this tiny little Whittler that Stevey helped me get, the build's fantastic. The reason I wanted it was because of the beautifully done split spring.

Exactly Fuzz!  They have a character to them that the modern knives don't.

I picked up this Trapper at a consignment style flea market just because it was a CASE, it had SS blades, and it was Orange. 

It is now one of my favorites to EDC.



After arriving home I learned the scales are G10.
