Thanks for the welcome. Looks like a nice place to hang out once I learn my way around. Did look at some of your pics earlier as I also like slip joints, old and new. I have about half a dozen Case knives, but for some reason I cannot and I mean literally, cannot sharpen them. Don't know what it is as they are the only ones I have trouble with. They're different models also. Strange. Toying with the idea of getting one of those "Chef's Pro" or something like that and give it a try. Boy, I'm getting wordy in my old age. Better stop for now. Thanks again for the welcome.
