Case & Case related knives over 100 years old

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.

Thanks Ken! Those pre-tested era knives are getting really hard to find in good condition. Gotta snap em up when they surface if you can.

I just picked this one up. A W. R. Case & Sons big Sleeveboard Whittler 63076 "1905-15" measures 4" closed. Has the "Made in USA" stamp.

Can't let Greg be the only one with a new vintage whittler!

Thanks for looking !! ::tu::
