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.

Greg, your Bradford 6151 is a beauty! It has a lot going for it with beautiful bone with crisp jigging, the raised letter arrowhead shied, and the crisp stamps including the pattern number. Fabulous old knife. ::tu:: ::tu::

Jerry, Larry thanks for the kind words. I'm really growing fond of that 51 pattern and that one is a pleasure to hold.

Roger, that’s a fantastic find! I’m thinking it may be one of the early members of its kind?
