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.
This is my first post here. I've perused this site and learned a great deal about pocket knives already. What piqued my interest in pocket knives is that I came across a knife while going through my late uncles belongings. I have learned that the knife is a 1977 Electrician Knife. What I am wondering about is how uncommon this knife's configuration is. It has a sheepfoot main blade and I haven't seen many like it while searching the net.
Any comments from informed collectors would be appreciated.
I've seen a few of those, although not many. Then again, I haven't been actively searching for one either so that might be the reason. It's definitely not as common as a Case Stockman, Canoe, Cheetah or something of that nature. It's still a cool knife though.
