Case red oval shields

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.

Case red oval shields

Post by Mick » Sat Jan 11, 2020 3:54 am

Hi, thanks for having me on the forum. I've never been a serious collector but do limit myself to one type knife, the tiny toothpick. I've got quite a few but mostly what appeals to me as far as looks, nothing even close to classics or older knives.
I have a question concerning shields. The first toothpick I bought probably 15 yrs ago was a Bermuda? green with a red oval shield. That shield appealed to me and over time I've bought every toothpick I could find with that specific shield. The latest was the Silver Sparkle. I'm wondering how I'd go about finding out how many different handle patterns used the red oval shield. At this point I have 6, navy blue, greeen, white sparxx, black and a 2 blade in natural. It's bugging me not knowing if that's all they made because of course I want them all!

Welcome to AAPK. My recommendation is to send your request to Case. Email them at

If anyone knows they might.

2007 Black Rogers
2007 Natural Bone
2208 Bermuda Green
2008 Navy Blue
2009 Navy Blue
2010 Navy Blue

Love the red Tang BTW
