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.

Here are a couple of recent pickups.

Case Bradford rogers bone medium coke 6237 1/2 1915-20 3 1/2" closed

W R Case & Sons Bone Congress 6288 1905-15 4 1/8" closed

I believe the 6288 to be pretty rare as it is the only 2 blade large congress I have seen from this era

Thanks for looking ::tu::

Tom
