the old case knives i have are noticeably better built
and ground to a better geometry than the newer ones
i have. jmho- i think case is catering to the collectors
more so than the traditional users.
as far as imported knives, i have some that will work
as well and hold an edge as just as well as some 40
year old + American made knives i have. i have a
newer marbles folding hunter that is a great knife.
i have several rough rider knives that are really great
i sold the randall knives i had some time back.
not because they were defect in any way, i just
needed the money more than i needed the knives.
as far as dressing game, i try to not use a folder unless
i really need to get whatever dressed out in a hurry.
i try to use the commercial butcher-type knives i have
for ease of cleaning and sanitizing. i don't like having
to try to clean blood and hair out of a folder joint, then
maybe have a few deer hairs or fish scales fall out into
my ham sandwich sometime later on a camping trip or
that said, i have used pocket knives that weren't really
suitable for the job to dress out game during spur-of-the-
moment hunts or fishing trips. it can be done with a teeny
knife just like some like to say, but it sure is a pain.
The United States doesn't have a gun control problem.
We have a people control problem.
