Default Case Pocket Knife

Been thinking about getting a small Case pocket knife. One that I might be able to carry for a long time. Seems to be made in USA. Anyone have experience with Case pocket knives?

I have a couple and no complaints. Case is probably the most popular all around pocket knife. Has been for many years.

I've carried one since I was big enough to walk. Can't go wrong!! I've mainly carried Sodbuster Jr.'s or trappers, but my son got me a Copperlock for Father's Day and that's what I'm carrying now. Check out Shepherd Hill's Cutlery online, they have just about every Case knife you can think of.

I second this one been carrying a copperlock or mini copperlock for close to twenty years. Shepard hills cutlery has a huge selection of knives at good prices. If you ever get up to Lebanon Missouri the store is worth a look.

Some of the best pocket knives built. I have a few of them. I also have several that my grandfather owned.

Got my eye on the "pocket worn old red bone lockback". Its 3" closed. Seems about the perfect size to carry in your pocket. I like the lockbacks better than non lock.

Been carrying a Case ever since Schrade went overseas. Honestly I like the cases better than the original Old Timers. Trappers and Stockmans are what I always have on me.

I have two. One thatís a daily carry and one thatís engraved with mine and my wifeís name and out wedding date. Iíve had the daily carrier for 3 or 4 years with zero complaints. Easy to sharpen and I keep a little oil where the blade rotated as a preventative. Blades are still tight and the handle finish still looks brand new.

This is the only knife I carry, and have been for as long as I can remember. I get all three of my boys one every year for Christmas, this is the best knife around. I hope when they have boys of their own they will do the same!

Iíve always carried the CV blades in the past. Theyíll develop a patina and rust a bit if you donít watch them. But they get really sharp and are pretty easy to sharpen. The one Iím carrying now is stainless. I havenít had to sharpen it yet, like I mentioned I just got it for Fatherís Day. But Iíve used it every day since then and havenít had to sharpen it yet so it seems to hold an edge pretty good. Either one will be fine for normal use I think.

The CV blade will hold an edge longer and will sharpen better. the CV might get a patina on it over time but that's OK in my book.

If you like Patina, stick blade in a potato over night. No more rust, with normal use.

They make that Sodbuster pattern in a bone also. Go to a good Case dealer that has alot of knives. My dealer has probably 100-200 different knives. Go to Motts in Spurger, Tx and he will have even more.

Get a yellow trapper with the carbon blade, you won't regret it. It ages and gets stained but it stays sharp and will do anything you ever need.

Do yourself a favor and buy a Boker Tree Brand or an Eye Brand made in Germany.

Been carrying a medium size stockman in my left pocket for going on close to 4 years now. Was a full size case trapper for 10 years before that. Really like the smaller size for fitting in your pocket. Been carrying an assisted opening Kershaw leek in right hand pocket lately for quick work when hands are full

What yall think about the mini trapper? Sheppard hill seems to have some good prices. Just dont know what you need those two blades for. Is that trapper blade capable of breaking, more than like a drop point?
