Sorry for the picture quality.
While I have never had an FNR degrade be aware...any and all celluloid is subject to gassing. The material degrades. You will have less issues if it is temp controlled, out of sunlight, ect. My very best advise it do not store it with other knives. If one goes it sets off others and destroys any metal it may come in contact with. I have seen folk do everything from putting them in baggies to cryovac sealing them. We sold all our celluloids a few years ago and only have three or 4 left. They are in a drawer by themselves and inside fleece lined zipper pouches
Wondering what some of you might pass along regarding a celluloid issue.
Some say that their FR celluloid knives have not exhibited the nasty characteristic know as "gassing," the chemical breakdown of the celluloid which releases vapors which degradate not only the offending knife but those stored in proximity.
Any FN experiences to relate?
Sterling, Thanks for the heads up...THE FIRST OF FOUR NEW FNR'S!
