Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

I know there is divided sentiment about Case Vs. Case Classic knives from the Jim Parker era. I, for myself, have a multitude of both. I had some interaction with both Jim and his son Buzz when Jim was still alive, and appreciated Jim's passion about knives, and his willingness to go the extra mile to make sure I was completely satisfied in our dealings. I really liked that about him. Anyhow, I have several Case Classics, trappers, light trappers, and clasps. Today, I'll show you some clasp knives, You can either cheer or boo, it's up to you- ;) ;)

I love Clasp knives and Case at one time had some of the best. I am sure they still are making great Clasp knives, I just haven't kept up with them.

  You have some real beauties, here. Thanks for posting.

Just beautiful John, no question with those colors and combined with great functionality Case sure had a winner there. No question everyone had an opinion on Jim Parker. No question though he had an impact on the hobby during his time.

John.

I owe my love of knives to the Case Classic line.  I also have plenty of both but always have to admit, the classics are still.....well, classic.  The clasps are a world of their own and you have some outstanding examples!

My favorite Case Clasp of all time "The Bulldog" in stag
