I've carried pocket knives since forever. I'm not sure why anyone wouldn't. For years, I' e carried the Gerber ones. When I was a kid Gerber was THE brand. Now it seems they're cheap crap and don't last long since they're now sold in stores and are not catalog order only.

Anyway, this week I stopped at that Case Knives Outlet in Lebanon, MO, and spent way too much money. I bought a new pocket knife for myself, one for the wife, and a new set of kitchen knives.

This is the pocket knife I bought, minus the Boy Scout emblem. It's a Buck, and I've never had a Buck pocket knife before so I'm interested to see how this one holds up in normal use. It has a pocket knife clip on the other side, which is not shown. I've had a few of the little Case jackknives and I like those too but I wanted to try a Buck pocket knife. I used to have a Buck 119 but it was confiscated during a barracks inspection when I was in MOS school and I never got it back. I liked that knife. It was hardened 440 steel and held an edge real well. Sharpening it could be tough though.

This pocket knife I bought is listed on the site for $55.00, the box from the store has a $65.00 tag on it, with a sale price tag of $47.99.

Anyway, if you're ever through Missouri on I44, Id recommend stopping at exit 127 and checking this place out. There's a Waffle House with limited truck parking for access, in case you want to nuke your colon. There's also a full service truck stop across the street.

Case Knives also says this knife went to the moon and back. Or ones like it anyway. I don't know if that's true or not but they've limited production to 250 of them.

There's one sitting in that outlet.

Always liked fixed blade Buck knives for hunting. Well, for skinning/cleaning after the hunting part. Hold their edge very well.
