I collect Case Knives.

My two favorites are my Grandfather's worn out genuine stag medium Stockman and the same model I purchased just after he passed away.



My everyday work knife is the Victorinox® Mechanic™

+1 on Benchmade. I carry one daily.

I used to have a Spike in full auto (like the pic above) but got wary in CA. Got an Elischewicz (sp?) and promptly lost it. Replaced them with others. Will try to post a pic in a bit.

I actually have that Mel Pardue in auto and standard. I carry them both. If you're not a gang banger, you can carry them in CA with out too much worry...

My first car was a '77 Celica GT Coupe. Being in Vermont it was a real skin cancer case, and after a couple years of ownership I came across another '77, this one in a fastback body. While exploring my $75.00 investment I came across this tucked under the driver's seat:


It was a basket case: the blade was bent and twisted, rust covered every metal part, it didn't have a sheath, and you could just make out the words
R. H. Ruana, Bonner, Montana stamped into the handle. Held onto it for several years and brought it with me when I moved out west. I was visiting a friend in Missoula and noticed on the map that Bonner wasn't 20 miles away. Looked up the knife shop in the phone book, told them what I had, and they said I should bring it in. They (over) polished it up for me, made it a full sheath, and explained that their granddad made that knife and he made it well: the blade was fashioned out of steel that is 3/16" thick cuz it seems granddad was damn sick of people snapping the tip off his blades
It is heavy as a maul, doesn't hold an edge very well and is a bitch to sharpen in the first place cuz the steel is so thick (and it wasn't hollow ground like other knives out there). Wouldn't trade it for the world.

I like my newest knife; hard to dice tomatos with it, though:
