The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
I always liked Yellow handles. Not my number one favorite, but I like them, a lot. Don't know what it is. there is something about yellow handles. They just look good to me. I know a lot of other people like them and collect them.
I remember looong ago some guys were talking about yellow handles and they mentioned when they thought yellow handles were first produced. In the 1930's? I can't remember.
1. Do YOU like them. What do you think of them?
2. Does anyone have the information, or can remember when yellow handles first showed up on knives?
Hey Bob, A SodBuster Jr. was my very first Case too (about 1976-78)! But, with the standard black delrin handles. I wish I had kept mine!!
The two Schrades were my 10th anniversary service award from TVA.
I feel the need for yellow. That Yellow Case Trapper you have there Max makes me feel all tingly.
Craig, That was the first knife I bought after selling off or giving away many knives after moving back to the windy city, I just thought it was time to get out of knife collecting. Then I was at the Ace Hardware warehouse sale for employees only at their headquarters in Oakbrook Il. where my wife works and they had that there for $1.00 well bought it and that bug bit me hard! been back at collecting since!
Glad I did cause with all the online forums and info bout events got to meet many new people that have some of the same problems i have, Buying and Hoarding knives, I call it collecting.
One dollar?! Good grief.
Prior to a few years ago, I was away from serious knife collecting too. It seems the knife bug bit harder this time around! More knives, more knife info, and more knife people now!
