Knife appears to be from the "Kinfolks era" 1926-1932. Kinfolks made the same model for Cattaraugus and a few other companies. The blade shows a lot of wear, the edge is down over 1/8". Case and Cattaraugus formed Kinfolks in 1925 to make fixed blades for both companies but Case took manufacturing back to Bradford around 1932. Kinfolks continued to make fixed blade for Catt up to WW2 and made knives with their own mark in Little Valley until they were bought by Robeson around 1956 and Robeson made Kinfolks marked knives until they went out of business in the mid 1960s. Kinfolks was a prolific maker of contract knives for other companies, I know of at least 15 other companies whose fixed blade knives were made by Kinfolks.

Some hunter was saying, Where the heck did I put that knife??? Feel bad for the guy, whoever it was. Heard a story about a guy who was helping his brother in law load a flatbed trailer. He used his Tony Bose Case knife to cut some rope and laid it on the fender of the trailer, never to be seen again.

Great old Case fixed blade, in pretty decent shape considering.
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!
