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.

Just received this custom slimline with brass scales. I came across this thanks to a friend pointing it out to me in the store here. Thanks Mr Kennedy for a great experience and a unique knife.

My newest Case, I didn't even know they existed until yesterday afternoon. A Case Southern Grind, it is some kind of sharp right out of the box! My son-in-law told my daughter, "I bet Granddaddy doesn't have on of these!" So he bought 2, one for me and one for him. :) Can't wait to try it on one of Bambi's kin folks, a knife that cost that much don't need to sittin' around collecting dust.

Thank you, Larry. I reckon a "tactical" has to grow on a feller. ::hmm:: I usually have a traditional folder, a stockman or a trapper in my pocket and have been carrying a tactical in my bib breast pocket for several years. I've abused a Buck and a SOG for several years without destroying my "good" knife. :)

Never seen one of those either Phil, but a nice looking knife - let us know how it skins. OH

Posted in another thread but I'm waiting on these three. Should be here by the end of the week or first of next week at the very latest. I have a feeling I'm going to be very pleased with all three.

All sellers pictures of course.


Jerry, unfortunately the doctor's knife had to go back. It turned out to be a single blade (not as originally pictured) and the single blade on the one I received was blemished. But the Tribal Lock and truck with stag Peanut are outstanding. That jungle green camo Kirinite is spectacular, you really need to see it with your own eyes. ::tu:: ::tu::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

Bradford was incorporated in 1879.
W. R. Case began in 1889.

I suspect that's a centennial knife for Bradford, PA, which was incorporated in 1879 per Wikipedia. The Case "Tested" centennial knives were produced in 1989 in various sets of pants, including stag. I have a couple examples including this R6243 which sits in my EDC box due to a weak etch and the defect from a pin-spinning incident which you can see on the mark side handle (the pile side has the same defect). I was able to get this knife for a good price a few years back, but most of the centennial knives seem to fetch a premium over a typical example of the same production pattern.

Latest addition to the fixed blade pile came off the bay. A Case small Bowie, 8 3/4 OAL with a 4 3/4 saber ground blade and Rodgers jigged bone handles. Also posted in the Fixed Blades forum.

I always liked Case's autumn bone sides - figured it was about time to do up a Ratcliffe in autumn bone ---->
