The Old CASE Knives
They are getting to be decently collectible these days.
Mine is a WW II knife. I bought used it when I was about 15 or 16 I think. Here is a display board of older Case Knives. It's a large photo so I'll just link to it.
A Case knife like mine above is showing in the bottom right corner of the display board.
In case any of you are wondering what type of magnet would be strong enough to hold this knife in the sheath...they are called Neodymium Rare Earth Magnets.
And they are STRONG AS HELL.
I was goofing around with two larger ones one time & ******* me got my skin caught between two of them.
I could not even wedge them apart!
I honestly thought I was going to hafta just cut my skin away.
I would be damned if I would go into the Emergency Room stuck between two damn magnets.
I finally got them apart.
They tell you to keep the larger ones 4 Feet away from your computer hard drive.

Keep even the small ones away from your computer monitor. My grand-daughter put one on the side of my monitor & the whole left side of my picture turned gray. Three weeks & it gradually came back.

VERY nice work QK on the sheath - very attractive and traditional pattern.
Knife too has that ''classic'' look - stories to tell I'll bet

This is the first time I've thought the sheath might be as interesting as the knife! Interesting idea with the magnet.

That sheath is awesome. Really, really nice work. I've heard about those magnets but never thought to use one to secure anything. I am afraid of those magnets. Knowing me, I'd get myself stuck to a truck door or something!

Nice knife with character. Using knives get that character and have a special place in the grand scheme of things. One gains confidence in such knives by constant use, breeding familiarity with the tool.
I've got a kabar that was issued to me in 1970, it's characteristics after hard use are what make these types of knives valuable.
