I received for Christmas one of the walnut display boxes Case made for their recent run of V42 reproductions. I have both an original V42 and a reproduction dated 1991. The display box is meant to be mounted on a wall and the knife is held in position vertically by magnets that attract the cross guard. Curiously, it works just fine with the reproduction knife but not with the original. While the original is weakly attracted to the magnets, they are not nearly strong enough to hold the knife up. The difference is at least 10:1 in holding power. Curious if anyone else has run into this, has any idea what the original cross guard is made of (304 SS cold worked?) or any good work arounds?
WooHoo I get to open my Case knife tomorrow!
LOL Tom is right we need pics

Thank you Craig, Merry Christmas!
Those look great Bill! I'm partial to the green. Maybe because it looks like the green of a Christmas tree with a red ornament.
Thank you Billy! I wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas :-)
