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.
A friend has this Case knife and is considering selling it. He has no idea of a model or worth. I really don't know anything about it, it does have the longtail C on the tang stamp so I'm thinking early 1900's maybe. Any information will be greatly appreciated! Jim
Hard to see tang stamp. Old 61051 “Fishtail” with bow tie guard.
That man is a success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much; who leaves the world better than he found it; who never lacked appreciation of earth's beauty or failed to express it; who looked for the best in other's and gave the best he had.
