Case Tested XX

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.

Zuber7 Welcome to AAPK ::tu::
Case Tested XX Congress Knives are very rare and impossible to find in the condition of your knife.
I’ve been looking for one a long time.
Sad to said your knife is a very good fake , sorry

Sorry to tell you sir, but it is 100 percent original. This knife came from a case collector who had collected, bought and sold knives for 50 years. I suggest you take a better look.

This is why I make a point to stay completely out of the Tested era ... I don't have the expertise to spot a fake & it's not worth the cost to me to take the chance. The really pristine examples can be worth IMHO stupidly high value, thus it draws unscrupulous types into the fray who make very convincing fakes. It's too bad there has to be this "element" in vintage knife collecting, but wherever there's (relatively) big money at stake in almost any endeavor, you'll have this type of thing - must just be human nature ...
