Well said Craig!

You should have stopped by Jungle J's David!

I totally agree with you about the stores J.J.!

Boxes don't matter if it's an EDC Billy, but if you are a collector of mint knives and never use the knives at all then boxes are a must!

Tobias, unfortunately all the mom and pop Hardware stores are going away and all that remains are places like ACE etc., it depends on location I think!

You guy's are guilting me out for not stopping in on my local Authorized Case Dealer recently.  Jungle J is only about 5 miles away.  It's run by some of his kids now but still has an amazing selection.  I last bought a Case Scout knife in mammoth from them to give to a friend's son when he got his Eagle Scout badge.  Thought I had a picture but can't seem to find it now.

One of the problems with dealer being called "Authorized Case Dealer" is, there are different levels of "Authorized Case Dealer".  If I remember the base "Authorized Case Dealer" can have just a few knives in stock after the first big order. I can't remember all the titles, but there's Platinum dealers, Master dealers, Exclusive Master dealers, etc, etc.

All/most of the dealers I do business with on the internet have HUGE selections. Waiting for a box is like Christmas to me! LOL! And some of the dealers will hand pick for you! I have a couple that I've done a ton of business with and they'll search through all their stock to find what I'm looking for. But not all dealers will do that. 

Also some online dealers will get in some new/old stock which is nice.

Big deal, blister packed. No box, into the pocket it goes.

I came across this video, yesterday, and thought it was hilarious until I realized this guy was serious.  

I don't think that I'm buying a collector knife when I buy one from a hardware store or a big box like Lowes.

My very first Seahorse cane from Lowe's and the much touted box went into the trash.

I think that many Ace Hardware stores carry a small stock of CASE knives.  Hardware store up the road, couple towns away, has more than the supposed dealer.

Toby is probably right in saying that folks don't go there to buy knives, but on the rare instance that you really need a working knife I'd like to be able to think I could find one there.

I think part of the problem is that folks don’t go to hardware stores to buy pocket knives anymore.  And the big box stores sell the cheap-o Tacticals and such because they are volume “take it or leave it” retailers.

Got that beat JJ, my local excuse for a hardware store, one that is supposedly a "Case dealer", (Ace franchise), has a grand total of 3 Case knives available over the counter; Yellow Delrin Trapper & Mini Trapper, ($49.99 & $39.99 respectively), & a lone Jigged Redbone Trapper, ($64.99). They have a few Bear & Sons and a few Buck flippers, (not even a 110!!!), & many many, (TOO damn many IMHO), Frost & Rough Riders. It's really a sad sight.

This is certainly true,  John, but sometimes the need for instant gratification outweighs the alternative.

Point I was making, though, is how can a place that only has 9 knives be an authorized dealer?

No Cabela's nearby, Toby, though we've got a Tractor Supply that usually stocks some of the more common patterns.

It's looking like the closest decent CASE dealer is probably 65 miles away.  And my wife wonders why I search for dealers near where we go on vacation.

Comment by Max McGruder on May 16, 2018 at 22:43

I buy from four Case dealers all online, unless I go to a Case show at a dealer but that's always out of state. It's always a good time too!
