Ode To The 07

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.

Ode To The 07

By special request, I am starting a thread devoted exclusively to showcasing examples of the humble yet amazingly utilitarian and artistically graceful Case Mini Trapper pattern 07. Please consider this an open invitation to post, discuss, examine or otherwise bask in the sweet glow and eternal magnificence of one of the most perfect patterns ever released by W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery in the history of mankind!

~Q~ thank you very much for showing those. You have some really nice ones.

Following in the footsteps of my Wharncliffe hero ~Q~, I've accumulated a few Case 07 W's. Now, do the W's come in stag??

My source is knifeaholic's latest and I hope I'm not misunderstanding what I read. According to the source, the term mini trapper didn't come into use until late1979 when the pen blade was dropped for the spey blade. My tastes run to the wharncliffe rather than the spey blade. I would really like them to bring back the pen blade as a variation just like the 6207W.

Wouldn't be a mini-trapper then Steve. Would be just a plain old Jack knife and I would be fine with that.
