My first Case knife...


Well-known member
...and it is in such good shape I am making it my every day carry.
A few inches down, open with the blade facing up...could have turned out bad for me but I always wear gloves and never dig in holes with my hands.
It was made in 2010 but no clue on when it was lost but it was down there long enough to make the nickel silver bolsters turn from silver looking to black.
It was in a patch of nice, loosely packed black normal dirt which is so rare around here, if it was lost in my usual red clay garbage who knows what condition it would be in.

A Case Copperlock Mini, high carbon rust resistant SS blade, (thank goodness), and bone handles.
They use Brazilian steer bones for the handles from what I have read.

A little more detailing, oiling and sharpening and it will be perfect.
I was told some metal polish and a buffer will make those end bolsters shine again but I kinda like the dark color, I assume there aren't many of these out there that look exactly like mine does now and I like being unique.

I found the other knife on the way home when I stopped to hunt some turn of the century curb strips.
This is what most of my knives seem to seem to look like when I dig them, time was not kind to that one but it might have been down there for 50-100 years or more.

Nice save I have found dozens of really old knives that are junk but only a couple newer ones. This one is a rebuild, a friend made the Damascus blades from scratch.

Congrats on the Case knife find! Case was always one of my favorite knives growing up.


I have found various knives in various conditions over the years. My favorite is the One Armed Bandit found years ago at a fairgound in Clark County, KY, I am still using it.
