Case Knives, now owned by Zippo, has an interesting knife museum in Bradford
Pennsylvania. The museum has samples of the early knives and the stories behind them. My nephew, Tim Pike accompanied me since he has been a knife fan for years. His grandfather, Thomas Pike, used to have Fort Tuscarora on Route 172 in Lisbon Ohio. History, guns, and knives runs in the family.
My quest for the best pocket knife was easy at the Zippo/Case Museum, because of the abundance of knives there. This place is open to the public, and I highly recommend it to knife collectors. These pictures were taken in 2006, so things might have changed since then. According to their website, the place is open 7 days a week, and boasts of 100,000 visitors per year, from all over the world.
You should have seen all the pocket knives last Saturday in Niles-Liberty Ohio. The Ohio Gun, Knife & Military Shows packed the house with vendors and
customers. They used the vacant Big Lots store in Liberty Ohio, in the Belmont Plaza. The next show at that location will be January 23 and 24, 2016, in case you missed this one. The address is 3495 Belmont Ave., Youngstown, Ohio 44505, next to Aldi’s. Most of the tables had rifles and hand guns, be we were there for the knives. There were more knife tables than we saw at our last regional knife show. We were impressed, even though most of the tables were for guns. Ohiogunshows.com is the place to go for more information on upcoming shows.
Here are some pictures of just a small percentage of the knife displays from last Saturday, December 19, 2015. If you are a knife lover, you should enjoy these. See you at the next knife & gun show! Tim Pike, my nephew usually goes with me.
