I just noticed this picture of the Muskrat knives and was wondering if they came in this case originally? I had this very same numbered set, same case, only they were the celluloid handles and unfortunately were completely ruined by gassing. So sad :(

Rob, Refering to your brownish celluloid single blade Jack, I believe it was called the "Short Boy"

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?

As most of you know, eight years ago today we lost Frank Buster. These last few yeas have been a very difficult time for our company, but we are clawing our way back. I am still holding true to our principles. To make great pocket knives you must keep the quantities limited, the quality top notch and give them something different. One of Franks favorite ideas was that of a Fight'n Rooster automatic, but whether it was the laws, timing or details he was never able to see his idea to fruition.
November 2012 I spoke with a brother of mine on his idea. He in turn put me in touch with a company that held much of our same principles. A couple of months later a design was chosen and details hammered out. Now it may have taken longer than we would have liked, but everything happens for a reason.
This is the Fight'n Rooster edition Ultratech by Microtech. We have produced 40 of these beauties for our 40th anniversary with an addition 10 special edition Ultratechs with Sterling Silver Rooster Skull lanyard pulls. Retail on these are $400.00 and $450.00, however, if you preorder yours before the 10th of this month you'll pay only $280.00 for the standard and $315.00 for the special edition. Don't miss out on the first Fight'n Rooster Automatics to ever be produced!
