Recently got back into Case knives last year, when I bought the Tony Bose Sowbelly at the SMKW Case Virtual Event for 2020. Been a Tony Bose fan ever since. However, my first into in Case was by my grandfather. He used to carry an old yellow Case Stockman (the bottom knife) made of carbon steel (no SS) that he would use on just about everything including skinning squirrels. When he passed away a couple of years ago, the knife had been sharpened so many times that they are nothing but nubs of rusty metal now!
