Hi Ken,

At the top of the page you will find "Research" Hit that, scroll down a little & you can find this.:

1940-1964 are accepted dates for the Case/XX stamp, however, I believe that the Case/Tested XX stamp bled over into that period, especially the many rough black handled knives that are marked either Case/XX or Case/Tested XX. The first knife is a Fairmount Cutlery Co. knife, Camillus made, pre-WWII.

That Case is in real bad shape. Has the handle material on the pile side been repaired with JB Weld?
