Great info here! In the video for the Case patterns, you can blame me for the Walnut Burl and Turquoise Trapper. It was rehandled as specified by the owner as to how he wanted it done and has been shown in at least one more of his videos. Since it was a shorter vid I watched it first, but I'm going back now to catch the first one. Most of what I know was pre-internet just like Phil, but the internet has made knife research a lot easier now. Still, buying the right books can teach you a lot and bookmarking a site is easier than having a photographic memory (mine is instamatic, but instead of developing before your eyes, mine seems to disappear just as quick).
AAPK has turned into one of the best places for those seeking any type of knife knowledge and this thread is another step in the advancement of spreading the word. Thanks for all the info!
