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.

Another nice find Tom! And pretty rare when you find a Case that Tony hasn't ever seen. ::nod::

Thank Ken & Royal, Here is another pickup from the Kentucky show, a Little Valley Knife Assn. Winterbottom large cigar knife 4 1/4" closed 1898-1903 , like an 06294. This knife has hardly been used at all, was really pleased to acquire it.

Thanks for looking ::tu::
