a while back, i flew to visit my parents. my stepdad was terminal..and spending time with them was a priority. flying, i had to leave all my EDC choices at home. i was carrying on my luggage. no benchmades, no Sogs..nothing.
i feel naked without a knife. like what would i do if i found an avocado that needed opening? the horrors. my stepdad pulled out this cardboard box and said..pick one. the box was full of random stuff. mostly dime store junk. rusted out no-name blades. but what caught my eye was a Case knife. i picked it up. it was heavy and dense for it's size. dull as all get out..butter knife dull. i ran it over a old arkansas stone he had..it just felt "right"..i got a working edge on it and just used it normal. oranges, hang nails,, checking the doneness of a steak fireside, ..boxes..letters. it was pretty nice.
when i tossed it back in the box, he said to keep it. i was going home and could care less if my bag got lost, so i checked in my pack. in it was the CASE. it is slowly growing on me. if i have troubles at work, i find myself rubbing the scales to help me think. countless avocados have been sliced. harvesting fruit from trees..done!! not all knife openings need to happen with a theatrical CLICK!
my stepdad has passed and i am so glad i have this small reminder of him. i recently sent it to CASE for a cleaning and a sharpening. i just cant get it that sharp. i got it back today. they cleaned it up like new!!! it is sharper than i could ever do..(not shaving sharp )..it is fantastic. i'm a fan of case knives. i might even order another one. my wife loves this one, and always sneaks it off into her purse. Case has wonderful customer service.
here it is. anyone else?
