Knife Collecting and Sweet Home Alabama

You probably know by now, I jump at any chance to spend time enjoying our knife collecting hobby. 

This past Saturday morning, October 4th, I had the chance to attend one of Case’s President’s Tour Events. With the demands on the home front and my real job, I don’t often have the opportunity to go to knife shows or events, but with this one being about 80 miles from my hometown down here in sweet home Alabama, I worked it out to go.

The Case event was held in Parrish, a small town 30 minutes NW of Birmingham, Alabama. Shelby (my mustang) and I arrived about 9:20 and I was not surprised to find a line of collectors stretching out into the parking lot.
