"I've seen them bring up to $45 for the double xx whittler and large stockman on eBay. But what they are to me, is a part of US cutlery history, that's lost and not likely to be repeated in our lifetime. When a quality product was more…"

Carrying a Case XX Stainless, 1940's era today.

Previous owner modified the etched fleshing blade, I'm guessing to cut thru sinew as well as flesh. They also reground the sheep foot blade into a coping blade. Suits me, one of my favorite EDC knives.

About Me
40 year antique Cutlery collector and cutlery history buff. Former gun & knife show dealer, until the 1990's and went online with ebay in 1997 as Speedy2. In 1999 changed to ezymny1, have bought, sold and traded thousand of knives until today. I still hit the gun/knife shows early in the morning, as the early bird gets the best worm groove bone handled antique sowbelly stockman! I have five children, 4 grandchildren and a beautiful wife of ten years!! I believe in Christ as my God and Savior , whose Word is sharper than any two edged razor bladed sword.
Interests
Grand children and family! Hunting, fishing, finding antique cutlery, buy, sell and trade.
Other Hobbies
Traveling, relic hunting, learning as much local history as possible before I move on to the next world.

Swapping interests.

I have changed collecting interests, over the years. Starting with Case trappers, then Case stockman, 47, 75's and 92's. Selling out in the late 80's, I went thru a cigar, cattle, and large equal end phase, Case 94's and old American brands. Sold those in the 1990's and started going for cheetahs, seahorse whittlers and russlocks. Classics appealed to me more than originals. Nowadays I pick up, odd German, old American stocks, and sunfish/toenails.
