It would be difficult to find a bigger fan of pocket knives than I am. I have carried one without fail since I was a small child. Many of them have been Case, but none of them looked like the new Abalone series. To put it mildly, they have a little flair.
Case has brought their already extensive collection a lot more shine with the addition of these polished Abalone-handled knives. The series boasts Peanut, Lockback, Small Texas Toothpick, Trapper, Medium Stockman and the Slimlock, pictured above. They are beautiful and worthy of some drool — okay, a lot of drool. Once your tongue is back in your head look at the price tag and feel free to gasp.
Prices go from $120 to just below $400 for some of the larger handled blades. Blowing that kind of cash on a knife makes a definite statement. Either you are a serious collector or you need an I-love-me-jacket. Crazy or collector, they are some pretty knives.
