Case Line up

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.

As strange as it may sound the plural of moose is Moose :mrgreen:

If the plural for "goose" is "geese" then wouldn't it make more sense for the plural of "moose" to be "meese?" ::hmm:: And yet, the plural of "mongoose" is "mongoose," not "mongeese." ::cb:: (Doncha just love the English language!) :lol:


Sorry to derail the thread with language trivia...now back to naming the patterns in the line up... :)

I can't identify all the patterns, but I can clearly see what's missing (Hint: a 6207 Mini Trapper ::nod:: )

Redrider, if I was a bettin' man I'd say that the 2nd from the left is a 92. Doesn't it look a bit shorter than Moose? ::hmm::

The only ones I think I'm sure of are numbers 1, 8, and 9.

Number 1: 6231 1/2
Number 8: 6245
Number 9: 6235 1/2

That's the best I can do and I'm probably wrong anyway. :oops:

Redrider, I must be starting from the wrong left. Like they used to say to us at Parris Island, "Your other left, Dummy!" As I look at the posted picture, I'm calling the left side the one that is on my left, the green bone, the black one is on the right side, I think?. ::shrug:: I'll just keep quiet. ::facepalm::
