Project Fail,,,,
on: February 16, 2022, 12:37:29 AM
I was so looking forward to toting this for Wood Handled Wednesday tomorrow.

Bought this Case Whaler at the flea market last weekend. Paid up for it too, as I have really been looking for a nice rams foot traditional. It had been abused and needed much cleaning. It also had a slight bend in the blade that made it rub hard on one liner. You had to purposefully push it closed. As I began applying light pressure to the blade to see if it would straighten at all,,,,, SNAP!!!!  :rant: I dang near cried.

So,,,,, the Whalers just became a little more rare I suppose. And I have officially broken my first blade.  :facepalm:

I'm feeling for you.  I am always so hesitant to straighten blades.  Tap tap tap and pray pray pray or pray tap pray tap pray.

I wouldn't have thought it was that brittle.
