Case Brothers Commemorative Series John D. Case

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.

Case Brothers Commemorative Series John D. Case

Post by knifelady1 » Mon Apr 19, 2021 6:31 pm

I'm not having much luck trying to research this Case Brothers commemorative series of knives. We have a John D. Case Muskrat ( I think) , a Jean Case copperhead and a Andrew J. Case trapper. All are red jigged bone. Paperwork shows limited edition of 1000 and they are in a wooden display box . I know there were four knives in this set. Can someone tell me the name of the forth person . I would like to try to complete this set.

I'm not familiar with this commemorative set but it would stand to reason that it would be their other brother W.R. Case. Jean was my Great Grandfather and President of Case Brothers.
Regards, John

Welcome to AAPK knifelady. I’m not familiar with that set but John’s answer makes sense. John, Jean, and Andrew Case were three of the four “Case Brothers”, William Russell (W.R.) was the fourth, and oldest, brother.

If you want confirmation or other info about the set send an inquiry to Case. You can email them at consumer-relations@wrcase.com.

I found these knives in the Shepherd Hills 2003 winter catalog no.26. The fourth one is W.R. Case and it is a sowbelly. They are all in separate wooden boxes and they sold for $127.99 each.
