There were 37 knife patterns manufactured in the early to mid 1990s that make up the Case Classic line of knives. They are the product of Jim Parker's realization of a dream to replicate classic knives of many years past.

Your knife was made by Queen Cutlery for Blue Grass Cutlery (not a knife manufacturer) who was the "middleman" for having the Case Classic series produced for W.R. Case . You have a very nice original Case Classic knife .

DOES THIS MEAN THERE WAS A PAPER INSIDE THAT SAID 1 OF LIKE 2500 MADE. I DONT SEE IT. NO ENGRAVING OF NUMBERS ON THE OUTSIDE. I GUESS IM CURIOUS IF THIS IS THE ONE THAT SELLS ON EBAY FOR A COUPLE HUNDRED OR IF THERE WERE OTHERS IN 1992?

In many cases, there were no Certificates included with the knife. I bought many Case Classics as they were released , that didn't include the COA. If your knife is mint and unused, it will get a couple hundred I think.

Did you look under the insert ? That is where I keep mine . There were 250 of that knife made in 1992 and the Case Classic Value Guide lists it at $450 which means that Classic Case is correct . On today's market you can expect to get 1/3 - 1/2 of the price in the value guide .
