About Me
My dad always had lots of pocketknives in his chest of drawers when I was a kid and most were Case. As a youth I felt a special attraction to case knives every time I went in a hardware store with a display. I moved to Athens AL. in 1976 and spent 3 years there working for Auburn University as a research associate doing on farm soil test calibration of fertilizer and lime in 12 counties in north AL. I met Bill Strain in Athens, AL. who had a nice collection, then I met Jim Sargent who lived in Florence, AL. I was 25 yrs young in those days, I visited Jim fairly often and he would let me go through his knives looking them over and admiring them. In the course of doing that I wiped every one of them clean and he told me he appreciated my visits for one thing because he got his knives cleaned! Of course I would buy a XX when I could afford to add one to my collection now and then. Now 4o years later I have quite a few rare old Case knives of my own to enjoy.
