When did Case stop making the 35 pattern?

Postby Railsplitter » Mon Oct 08, 2018 10:24 pm

I've already had this question answered for me awhile back but danged if I didn't go and forget the answer. ::dang:: Can't find it in a search either.

Anybody know the last year that Case made the 35 pattern? Here's a photographic example of a 6235 1/2 for reference.

Thanks.

Thank you, Bruno! I'll write it down this time. Probably should get that book too.

Yes...officially discontinued in 1985. But I have never seen a 1985 example, so its possible that the last ones were actually made in 1984. At the time that it was discontinued, the pattern was made with delrin handles and stainless steel blades.
