Like most other pen knife shapes , this one was often used for whittlers. Case's most popular whittler is the 6308 made in this shape, so the firm calls it's ordinary two-bladed, swell-center serpentine with a clip master blade a "half-whittler." Collectors sometimes use the term half-whittler for other pen knives with clip master blades.
