Gift from my Brother-In-Law

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.

Gift from my Brother-In-Law

Post by Runted » Tue Sep 15, 2020 4:02 am

The other day my Brother-In-Law stopped by.
He had called and said he was coming and he had something
for me that he had come across.
Well below is the picture of what he brought over and gave me.
Sometimes In-Laws aren't all bad.

Now I have to find something to give him. It's going to be hard to match this.

That's one very generous B-I-L. I think he's a keeper.

Wow, very nice! I assume he didn't get that beauty for $5 at a yard sale? ::tu:: ::tu::

That's a wonderful knife! Enjoy it!
It made me think of an almost identical Case (not a bicentennial) given me almost 2 years ago by my best friend. He passed away just a few days later. :(
