The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
One of the two patterns I collect is Case Mini Blackhorns. (The other pattern is fish knives.) They are a Case knife but are an inexpensive knife to collect. Also there is a wide variety of them. I have 25 of them, all different. The ones I have date from 1988 to 2016.
Does anyone else collect the Mini Blackhorns?
Here are pictures of a few of mine.
Those are cool Charles and you're right, they're not an overly expensive pattern to collect either.I don't have any but I know my son had a couple of Christmas ones still in the packages at one time.
Inexpensive and can also be a good user. They are one of the Case lines that even a new collector can get into without breaking the bank
I bought my first Mini Blackhorn at Lowes as a user. It was just a standard Mini Blackhorn and cost $12. I carried it for two or three years as my EDC until I switched to my Rough Rider work knife. The Mini Blackhorn takes up very little space and adds almost no weight in your pocket. For someone who does little or no heavy cutting, it mades an excellent EDC. I must say that a few times I did some fairly heavy cutting with it and it was starting to get a little loose. The RR work knife that I carry now is a more rugged knife because it has brass liners while the Blackhorn only has the zytel handle. So far the RR has not loosened up any.
I looked up the company, they have forging going on :)
It is an amazing skill !
