When will Case reveal the new decade tang stamp ?

Post by Lansky1 » Sat Aug 24, 2019 11:42 pm

I haven't been into knife collecting long enough to know how Case's release of a new decade tang stamp will roll out. Will be interesting to see what 2020 will bring (I've always liked the 2000 decade tang stamp best - that one is different and easily recognizable). Anybody that's been around knives longer than me know if this type of release comes with great fan fare or if on Jan 2, 2020 they just start pumping out knives with a new stamp ?

Yes, it will be interesting to see what they come up with. Whatever it is, I hope it's simple to read and understand. Can't be too much longer. ::pace::

I could swear someone on the Case Collectors Club forum asked the same question recently, but I can't find it now. ::facepalm:: IIRC someone from Case posted an answer, basically implied it won't be announced until late in the year and the employees don't know yet either.

As much tomfoolery and shenanigans as counterfeiters deploy, I frankly don't see any advantages to Case from early announcement. In fact I think I'd wait until January 1st!

Anyway I can't find the post. Maybe I just dreamed it. :lol:

My guess:

CASE XX

(remove one foreslash each year for the first 5 years on the front end of the decade and one backslash for each year on the back side of the decade)

I don't know all the history of Case and how they change their stamps. I hope they make it simple, maybe just write the date on it.

Something like this maybe.

Case actually did that in 1990.
Story goes that the 'collectors' did not like it and wanted the dots back.
So mid-year 1993 Case went back to dots. ......

I like ~Q~'s suggestion. Though not extremely attractive, it's simple yet efficient. They should have stuck with the full year stamp. The Collector's club would have gotten used to it and if sales sagged it would have only been briefly. Knife people are not going to jump ship over a little thing like that. The many suffer while they pander to the few or a classic example of the tail wagging the dog.

But what do I know. I'm not a Case aficionado/supporter.

While I do favor Case knives, I can honestly say that a tang stamp isn't something that gets me all in a tizzy.
It is what it is. It will be what it will be. If people are looking for a specific year, doesn't matter what the tang stamp looks like, just what the date is.




But that's me.
Take care and God bless,

I think it's a marker of our own time as knife collectors - at some point you'll realize you just saw your last Case decade stamp design!!

I doubt they will go to something straightforward like actually placing numbers on the blade
for a year. Maybe something very traditional or old school?

Had a curiosity attack this morning and Goggled the Case 2020 tang stamp which led me here. It suddenly hit me that a late announcement leads to discussion of the possibilities which produces a lot of free publicity.

I'm speculating that Case will return to all dots this next decade (ala the 70's, 80's, 90's) but use a different variation of the word CASE. OH
