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.

Thanks, Old H...I'm glad to know there are others out there who enjoy looking at my knife pics as much as I do.

Your Tsunami metaphor is particularly apt as I often feel I am being swept up and drowning in a tidal wave of Mini Trappers. Nevertheless, for some reason I just keep adding more and more to the rising tide, somehow just barely managing to keep my nose above the waterline.

Here is my collection of 1st ISSUE 07 Mini Trappers. I'm still looking for a Yellow Bone in order to have one of each color released. At the same time, I'm always on the hunt for either the straight edge or the serrated Wharncliffe version of each color to complete the full set.

Nice first issue set - if I ever see a yellow I’ll let you know. OH

Posted else where but I'll show it here as well. A Case XX Tested Centennial 1889 - 1989 FB 207. The FB shows that the scales are from Case's old Foster Books plant floor boards. Got it from our own Nutmeg State Knives with the box but no paper work. Serial # 0032. Also like the shield.
