Ode To The 07

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

So far, I've been able to stand strong. Right now it's a stand-off between the Wharncliffe and those handles (not that they're really super unappitizing). No way of knowing how long that will last.

Listening to some good blues got me in the mood. So, I went back to the basics on this one. What can I say?...I'm a sucker for a red shield.

My friend came by today looking to do some knife trading. These aren't necessarily ones I would have bought for myself, but this is what I ended up with. The Giraffe and the Shamrock covers look a bit cartoonish to me, but I do like the clover leaf bolster stamp. I already have a Mediterranean Blue Damascus 107W, so now it looks like I have two. At least they're not identical twins.

I guess when it comes to knife trading, sometimes it's more about the fun of swapping than about the knives themselves. :|

Thanks, John. I gotta admit, I do like the Devin Thomas "Ladder Damascus" much more than the "Forged Wrought Iron" Damascus Case used on some of their other Damascus knives. Since I now have two Mediterranean Blue 107Ws, if you're interested in getting one for yourself this could be the time to do it. Just let me know; I'm sure we could work something out.

I think it will be much happier living with you, jerryd...I'm glad it found a home where it will receive the appreciation it so rightly deserves. Now if you could just find the Bengal Tiger and the Zebra patters you could start your own private safari zoo! (Maybe even throw in a Rattlesnake, Lizard Skin and a Buffalo Horn for good measure.)

Found a Tiger but it's too expensive for this month. I'll just have to wait and see if it lasts into July.

This is a Queen #51T, not a Case 07...but, it is a mini trapper so I think I'll go ahead and post it here where it should feel right at home alongside its 07 Mini T cousins.

It seems the OCD Mini Trapper Monkey that usually rides on my back was instead on the Mini T sobriety wagon during the month of July...I actually sold more 07s than I bought...can't remember the last time that happened (or if it ever did).

But, the 07 OCD Monkey is like a bad rash...just when you think you've got it under control, it comes roaring back with a vengeance.

It really didn't take all that much for Mini T Monkey to fall off the wagon. In fact, he actually leaped off the wagon with shockingly little hesitation or restraint, shrieking impatiently, after spotting a 207W that I didn't yet have in my collection (Periwinkle Bone). Just one small sip to "wet the whistle" and, like so many times before, he ended up taking me on another out-of-control, no-holds-barred, full-throttle, white-knuckle, crash-and-burn Mini T bender.

The smoke has yet to completely clear so I'm not entirely sure what the full extent of the damage will amount to. But, here's some of the debris I managed to salvage from the smoldering ruins (of my pocketbook) OCD Monkey left in his wake of wanton destruction.

I fear this is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg; there may very well be more as yet unaccounted for and/or still on the way. I'm no longer surprised at what the Monkey drags in...it's the sheer volume that astounds me. Apparently, 07 OCD Monkey lacks all semblance of discipline or self-control. Tragic.

You are very welcome, Steve. Having an addiction is much more enjoyable when it is shared with others! :lol:

After a period of buying, selling & swapping, OCD Monkey becomes restless and agitated if things start to get the least bit disorganized. So, in an attempt to quell his fear of chaos and certain doom, I had to make sure all his favorite 07s (107W and 207W) were accounted for and in good order.

Fortunately, he's not quite as OCD when it comes to the non-Wharncliffe 07s. As long as they're organized according to some kind of system (handle color, handle material, year of manufacture, etc.) he's OK.
