Next generation of collector.

"Great way to start her collection.   Now if you will just give her a knife on every birthday she will amass quite the collection, that is what I did with my 2 boys.  Anyway congratulations."

"I did not know Mr. Webber but the loss of any fellow collector is a great loss to the whole knife community. I will drink a toast of my best Burbon to him tonight. My sincere condolences to his family and friends. May God be with you, good bye."

Profile Information

How did you hear about iKnifeCollector?
I just stumbled in one day
Do you currently subscribe to any knife publication (offline)
How long have you collected knives?
41 to 45 years
Favorite Kind of Knives
stockman preferably with stage grips. But I have been known to buy a trapper or a canoe or a congress or a barlow or a toothpick or a tactical or a lockback or... who's kidding they are all my favorites. I can always find something that I like about a knife.
About Me
54 year old IT Tech, though I was schooled as a Draftsman and worked for over half my career as one, living in central Ms on the Ms River.
Married to the same woman for 35 years with 2 grown boys.
Now a 63 year old retired former IT Tech still married to same woman but with 2 boys a daughter-in-law and 2 grand daughters.
I now spend my time as an Uber driver for the girls and a baby sitter when called on.
My collection is various in nature, when I see a knife that I like the looks of I usually buy it. Most of my purchases are production not custom.
Other Hobbies
It seems that I sometimes I just can't help myself and go and purchase a gun, usually a handgun, more than likely over .40 in caliber. The problem with collecting guns is they go up in price but my retirement check doesn't go up at the same pace. I also have a small collection of 1/18 scale diecast cars, mostly 60's and 70's muscle and somehow a M48 & M4 tank and a M3 Half-Track.

Son just gave me this Case

Posted on July 23, 2019 at 16:55 3 Comments

My oldest son is a security guard and the other day he had to stop someone going through the metal detector when it

went off.  It seems the man had a yellow handled Case 3254 carbon steel trapper.  He informed the man that he couldn't take the knife in with him and did he want to return to his vehicle and put the knife up.  The man told him no you can have it or just throw it in the trash.  So naturally my son brought it home to me.  It had been so long since it had be oiled that the…

I've tried to PM you twice now through iKC. Perhaps, the attached link presented an issue.


I'd preferred to send this via a PM out of courtesy to Jan ..because.. it involves a different knife form. Anyway .. I'll send it this way. 


I am a member of another forum that specializes in Queen City, Schatt & Morgan, & Queen in general. It is the site from which I gleaned the scissors & clippers.


It is unfortunate, the forum is Fb based. None the less .. I will include the "LINK". The name of the group is "Queen City & Schatt & Morgan knives". It's a "closed forum" ..but.. you'd be readily accepted.


When I mistakenly attempted to contact you through Fb .. I took a guess & contacted "Rome Patrick Rushing" who also hails from Vicksburg, MS. Obviously .. my bad !

Rome, as host of the iKC Arsenal group I extend an invitation to you to join the group.  Also by posting a picture that relates to guns, shooting, or hunting you can win a knife.  You can enter the contest at this link.
