My First Case Tested XX

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.

My First Case Tested XX

Post by CarMan »

I know it’s rougher than a cob, but got a pretty good deal on it & it had a good tang stamp. I collect TL-29s and never thought I would be able to get one of these. I can’t do anything about the blade loss, but thanks to a member & good friend on here I now know how to clean it up. My concern is that I can’t find any other pictures of a Tested XX with the TL-29 stamped mental shield, all I can find is with it pressed in the wood scale.

I believe that one is fairly rare, the shield complies with the government MIL spec. Several companies including Case made them on contract for the military.

When the people fear their government, that is tyranny. When government fears the people, that is freedom.
