Surely one of the Case collector guys knows about this knife ?

I agree you'd think someone who collects the newer Case knives should know about them. That's why I am surprised there is so little about the Cub on the Case Collectors Club Forum, as most of those who post there collect newer knives. From what I can deduce these were made since 2000 - long after Parker's time.

The Cheetah pattern was a 111-1/2 (6111-1/2 for bone, 5111-1/2 for stag). So I guess they just shortened it to 11-1/2 for the Cub. The first "1" being the number of blades, would mean the handle die (pattern) number was "1" also (as in the second "1"). The 1/2 denotes a clip master blade in Case language.

Which would mean the Cub pattern number is "1". If that's the case then its the first pattern "1" I know of. Historically the Case "01" pattern has been a small pen knife.

The following information was taken from Steve Pfeiffer's book Collecting Case Knives: Identification and Price Guide.

"...The Cheetah Cub was introduced in 2005 as an exclusive Life Member Knife to Case Collectors Club members only. It was then introduced in the second edition of the 2005 catalog in Pocket Worn Peach Seed Jigged Caribbean Blue Bone, Smooth Genuine MOP, 6.5 Bone Stag, Smooth Red G-10, and Corn Cob Jigged Bright Green Bone..."

Since then the Cheetah Cub has been offered in many other natural and synthetic handle materials. I have one in Genuine Stag and Cabernet Bone, and I have seen Abalone and Red Stag as well.

The pattern number is "1 1/2L." So, a Cheetah Cub with bone handle scales would be a 611 1/2L.

It has not been 'officially' discontinued or cancelled, but it is not currently being manufactured either.

Thanks Gary! I should have known to look in Steve's book. ::facepalm:: Since I couldn't find much about the Cheetah Cub on the CCC forum I asked some questions about it there, in the "Ask Case" subforum. You can answer my dumb questions there also if you want! :lol:

I'm back after a "Cool Down" period. I lost three or four hours of work, composing, and loosing, a few posts that included pictures. I just now spent more than three hours, composing, and loosing a couple more posts. Oh, Well, I'm a glutton for punishment. Here goes another one. While researching the Case Cheetah Cub knives, I believe that I've discovered the Case' Company's most well kept secret. It's their Cheetah Cub Knives! There also seems to be fewer Case collectors interested in the "Cub" knives, than any type knife, that Case ever offered for sale. This, in my estimation, makes the "Cub" knives "Rare Birds" indeed! I have , by a slight mistake, acquired another Cheetah Cub knife. A well known Case dealer, slightly "Pulled the Wool Over my Eyes" , and thereby, I believe, "Skinned Me", a bit. Oh, well, "Live & Learn", as the old saying goes. This "Cub" is a nice knife, and as "rare as Hens teeth" according to the dealer who sold it to me. All of this "Rigmarole" has made me believe that I must become an absolute, spectator, only. I need to do it as soon as I can make myself. Here's a picture of the knife that gave me a "Comeuppence".

Sut, I appreciate your post and even more knowing the time spent in posting them. Great little knife. I was unaware of the cub until your post. Probably will never find one but I will be on the look out. Thanks. ::nod:: ::nod::

Hi, All;
I've let the dust settle on the Cheetah Cub situation again for a while, and in the meantime I've acquired a couple more Cheetah Cub knives, for a total of five Cheetah Cub, knives. Iv'e been able to pair up two of them with regular Cheetah knives, of mine, a yellow, and a white stag. Here is a picture of my five Cubs, along with my std. Cheetah in rootbeer bone scales. I would like to find a Cheetah Cub knife knife to pair up with my rootbeer bone handled Cheetah shown, but can't find out whether case ever made one. I've tried several times, as members have suggested to get in touch with The Case co. That doesn't work for me at all. I've also bought, and studied some Case Knife Collectors books, and didn't find found the information that I need there ether. Maybe one of our members can come up with it later. Thanks.

Willy;
I just read your post again, and would like to see pictures, of those three Winchester / Cheetah knives that you mention in your post. Please.

Sure. I still need to twist Scale Military knife arm to take pics for me. Here are sellers pics (they don't due these knives justice). I bought 2 of the coke bottles. They are one of the biggest knives i'v ever seen. I think even bigger then a full size folding hunter... ::hmm:: The build quality is same or better than case knives. Not the premium (Tony Bose) but probably standard case.
Enjoy!
