Newest Case Pick-Ups

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.

Nice choice on the Autumn Bone...you got some especially nice colors in the bone on your Ratcliffe. The slanted bolsters are a nice touch as well...they compliment the shape of the Wharncliffe perfectly. It would appear as though you have perfected your Ratcliffe mod to factory specs...actually even better, more like custom shop specs.

I wish my Autumn Bone 6207s were 6107Ws...but, alas, you can't always have your (Autumn Bone) cake and eat it (with a wharnie) too!

Thanks guys. That orange looking coating was some old, gummy oil. I found several knives, bought three, all new but shopworn - the grime has cleaned off, joints all oiled and snapping nicely. OH

Swapped for this baby today.
P62-4 1/2
Anyone know what years these were actually in production? The tang stamp indicates sometime between 1965-1980, be nice to narrow it down a little more.

If anyone has a line on an original sheath drop me a PM please.

Picked up a Case Sodbuster and a little Peanut recently. First Sodbuster and I love it's simplicity!! It feels really nice in hand also and reasonably priced. Thanks for looking. :)

Lol. You got that right. I was reading the history of the sodbuster last night and it is styled after the Antique Roman folders. They call it a folding butcher knife. A peasant knife. Neat history on them. I showed it to my boss and he loved it. So I am going to buy him one for his retirement which is coming soon. He is a big hunter and said it was the perfect skinning knife. I used it to cut some veggies for me and the Misses today. I'm glad to have it and don't know why it took me so long to pick it up. Have a great weekend Greg!! :)

Here is one that came in today. These 06247pens are one of my favorite carry knives I saw this 1974 with these really pretty bone handles and had to have it. :D
