Passed down knife collection
« on: January 11, 2020, 11:36:19 AM »
So, when I was a kid we used to get my Grandfather a pocket knife every year for Christmas. He passed away last year and the collection was split up between grandsons. The ones below are the ones I got. The Old Timer 340T is a true USA made and I cleaned it up and have been carrying it recently. Hope yall enjoy. Chime in with any info yall have on these knives!

That's a cool tradition and a great legacy gift. Looks like grandpa really liked the Paul knife. Don't blame him would like one myself!

That's way cool.  I buy a new knife every time I go through East Tennessee for a tradition.

Very cool, those Case knifes have been growing on me for a while. Thank you for the post and pics.
Will work for CZ pics! (including but not limited to all CZ clones)

 Thanks that brings back memory's of my father that passed a few years ago at age 92. After his passing I was the one who had to go through his things and in a small box I found his treasure's all gifts my children and I had given to him.

My most treasured knife belonged to my grandpa. It is plum wore out from decades of use in his hand. It's a wonderful reminder of the gentleman he was throughout a lifetime well lived.

Just pretend this is witty.

These knives are legit and even more so because of their history

That Gerber with the tan-ish gold looking handle and what looks like a button is interesting. I dig unusual stuff like that. Nice collection.

That’s pretty sweet man. I think I just found my next internet treasure hunt.
