    Found it on eBay, a mistake on the sellers part led me to believe I was getting more than one but I like the knife and payed a reasonable price so I decided not to request a refund.

    It's a Sabre USA , My guess is Schrade as it looks just like their 708 but Camillus may be a good suspect as well.

    Love the covers on that one :thumbsup::thumbsup:

    A great knife :thumbsup:. I just picked one of those up. The dye job isn't as dark as I'd hoped for. Maybe I'll try darkening it.

    Yes, that is the problem with those Case knifes. The color and texture of the handles varies a lot! Shops usually use stock pictures of a particularly nice specimen (obviously) and you never know what you get. I ended up stalking ebay for several weeks because some of the sellers show pictures of the actual knife. There was one who seems to specialize on particularly nice handles, probably hand-picked. I ended up paying a few dollars over the standard Amazon price but that was totally worth it!

    One nice thing about Case is that there are so many dealers. Hardware stores, farm and ranch stores, gun stores, etc. Some have large displays. I usually get to examine before I buy. Of course, some places only carry a few, but you can locate the gold and platinum dealers online. I have ordered a couple of Case knives online and they were fine.

    Thanks GT, red & black do look right together. The Pioneer is Vic's annual color for 2018, quite unique and growing on me more each day. Hope you are having good Sunday.

    That Navaja up there is gorgeous.

    I hope to carry this one tomorrow. A little more grinding, 400/600/800 grit then hot wax. For the knife
