Cattle Knives, 45 pattern!

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.

Jdub, Nice Case XX 6345 1/2! In the XX era the 45 knives were made with premium nickel silver components (pins, liners, bolsters) so it is a well-made knife like the 6380 you collect.

It has been a long time since a Case 45 cattle knife has joined my herd - there don't seem to be many of these hitting the market. These pictures are a Case Tested XX 05245 1/2. The 2 blade 45 patterns with a single back spring have a very slim profile. Thanks for looking.

Jerry it seems you like the thin single spring knives pretty well. That stag is really nice.

Just some very nice knives being posted. This is my only contribution, a smooth black cattle. Picked it up at a flea market in the condition you see.

Greg, your Tested XX 05245 1/2 is really pretty. The stag is fantastic. Thanks for bumping the thread. 45's seem pretty scarce lately and you found a super nice one. ::tu:: ::tu::
