I purchased this knife 2 years ago and was initially very impressed. My knife has the red Case oval shield which I find very complementary to the blue bone handle and was the weighing factor to my choice. All blades were highly polished and extremely sharp upon arrival. The blades all have great half & full open snap and have retained their qualities to this day. Still sharp and still snap. With minor disappointment however, I noticed that the blue bone handle had separated slightly away from the brass liner near the front bolster within 3 months. It was evident that the pin was not securing the bone handle tight against the liner. I sent the knife with a description of my issue to Case and they repaired it at no cost. A few weeks without the knife and a few dollars for shipping was of only small anguish. Overall, I genuinely like Case knives and have purchased others since. My scenario above is likely a fluke for I don't remember dropping the knife & I certainly never mis-used it. I still carry and use this knife and have had no issues since.

Not sure what happened with john's knife. Always had great results with case knives. Maybe his was made on a Friday before someone's vacation.
