"As they say in Italy, Italians were eating with a knife and fork when the French were still eating each other. The Medici family had to bring their Tuscan cooks up there so they could make something edible"
Looks like Case took all the patina, scratches, and tar off the whole knife when they repaired it, Now it will take you years to get it back to looking broke in. LOL. Nice little knife that one is. If you water it some it will turn into a 6254
Picked up 2 Lanny's Clip beauties from my favorite gal, Eva at Lehman's Hardware in Kidron, Ohio. She actually held a Chestnut and an Antique bone for me to select from. I couldn't decide between them so I took both. At $233.10 each I got a great buy too.
