Fixed Blade what do I have?

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.

Kind of looks custom to me? ::shrug::
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

It is not a custom or modified knife, it is an original Case hunting knife from the early 1920s. It appears to have a nickle guard which would place it before Case had all their hunting knives made by Kinfolks which began in 1925-26. Being as there is no provable evidence that Case made any hunting knives before 1922, you knife should be circa 1922-1925. Very cool old hunter although somebody did do a heavy buffing on it.

It is a very hard knife to find, looks like it is in good shape especially for it's age. That pattern is not often seen.
