I collect knives made in USA with a patriotic design. Here's a few I've accumulated so far from manufacturers such as:

Buck, Pro-Tech, Kershaw, Zero Tolerance, Case XX, Guardian Tactical

I try to get a variety... Lock back folders, automatics, fixed blade, assisted opening, flippers, etc

Working on a display case for them now as my current project

Nice collection. I bought a new knife the other day. Not a collectors one though. I got a swiss army knife the tinker. Still deciding if that one will go in my hunting bag. Or in my vibe. I have a Officer Susie i keep in the saturn.

Here's the wall display I made for my small, but growing, collection of USA-made patriotic-themed knifes.

Still need to design and make a glass door for it (display is in my office/shop where it is dusty)

I like the finish you put on your display case. I might copy the design. The tanto next to the Leek looks almost like a Cryo what model is it?

The bottom left tanto is an OTF Guardian Tactical - recon elite model

The bottom right is a Pro-Tech TR 4.41 auto with a safety

Next up is a Buck Spitfire and two Case knives... A woodchuck and a cooperlock

Above those are a Case cheetah and a Zero Tolerance hinderer 0562

Then it goes Buck gent, Kershaw Leek and Buck 110

Then a Kershaw Link and on top a Case Bowie

I like the finish you put on your display case.
1- soaked some 000 steel wool in vinegar for two days
2- slathered that on wood (let it dry a few days) ... It greyed it out and "aged it" a bit
3- then finished by putting some minwax wood finish penetrating stain #271 (classic gray) on it

Added another to the collection

This Buck 5" fixed blade special edition (#1102 of 7600 made) called "Spirit of '76" has been languishing inside the wooden display box in which it was packed to ship/display for 45 years... and needed a good home. It now sits proudly in my wall display
