Never seen Case Pattern

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.

Never seen Case Pattern

Postby mmajor75 » Sun Aug 25, 2019 6:53 am

I have a Case knife in my possession that I have searched the internet for his trying to learn about. If anyone can give me some information or point me in the direction to knowledge I would be greatly appreciative.

Welcome to the forum. That knife looks a lot like a knife that was posted on here about a year ago. The seller on eBay claimed he wasn’t sure but thought it was an early David Yellowhorse Knife, which it wasn’t. Someone contacted David and he confirmed that it was not. I think what you have here is another example of someone’s poor imitation of David Yellowhorse. If I can find that thread, I will edit this and include a link.
Since you have the knife in hand, is that handle material solid silver, aluminum of silver paint?

Edit, viewtopic.php?f=17&t=58720&hilit=Yellowhorse

The scales, I have no clue, but the pattern looks to be a 62087 Texas Jack,
