1977 Blue Scroll W/Engraved Bolsters

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

1977 Blue Scroll W/Engraved Bolsters

Postby wazu013 » Sat Aug 18, 2012 11:31 am

I have five of the seven that make up the Blue Scroll set with engraved bolsters so I thought I'd put some pics up. They made 1,000 sets with engraved bolsters as opposed to 19,000 sets of plain bolsters. I'm missing the Cheetah and Trapper paterns but I do have them in plain. I have quit trying to find the pieces that I don't have but I sure would like to see them.

Wazu, that is a beautiful collection of Case blue scrolls - it will be even cooler if you ever do find the other two (hope you just luck into them someday).

Here's a plain bolster set I rounded up and store in a Blue Scroll Clasp pumpkin box. It was the first set I got hooked on; the stag, stainless and etching cannot be beat! ::tu::

So how does this Case Baby Doc fit into that whole Blue Scroll thing? I'm sure it doesn't fit into what y'all are posting but I'm wondering, is it some later run they made or what?

Nice baby doc jerryd! Case did a later run of Blue Scrolls in different patterns, can't remember if it was late 90s or in the 2000s? ::shrug:: Whats on the tang stamp?

Edit- 2006?

wishful,
Nice set of Blues ::tu:: Are they all numbered the same? My 5 pieces have 3 different numbers,2x028,2x749 & 1x806. I always thought that someday I would run into somebody that had the engraved Cheetah or Trapper as singles that would trade me for my plain Cheetah and Trapper and some cash or another knife. I gave up on the idea a couple of years ago. Now I'm getting ready to sell most of the knives I've posted in this forum and start building another collection and get my kitchen remodeled. I just bought a new camera so I can get some nice pics.


redrider,
Isin't the stag on these knives great? It's easy to get hooked on it for sure ::woot::

I was at a flee market in savannah GA. on 2-10-13 and saw three case knives at an antique shop. It was a hunter,trapper and modle 52087 all blue scroll with engraved bolster. I am not sure how to grade knives but they look mint to me. He was asking $55 for the hunter,$40 for the trapper, and $30 for the 52087. So i asked him how much he would take for all three and he says $90. So i did not know what a deal i got until i got home and surfed the web. The set is #153. Sure would like to find the other four knives that makes the set complete. Not thinking thats going to happen.
