Son just gave me this Case

My oldest son is a security guard and the other day he had to stop someone going through the metal detector when itwent 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 blades…See More

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.
Interests
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. 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.
