It took 124 years, but a collaborative effort between Carhartt and Case was finally announced at this year’s SHOT Show. The two companies, both founded way back in 1889, will launch a new collection of knives aptly called the Carhartt Knives by Case Collection.
In case you didn’t know, Carhartt is a U.S.-based clothing company that’s known for its rugged work clothing, which makes the collaboration with Case perfect.
The new collection will feature 22 different models with a made-in-the-USA stamp and will be available within the next few months.
Here’s a more detailed description of the types of knives in the collection from Tactical Fanboy:
Made up of 22 individual models, the knives are divided into three separate categories: the G-10 knives which features 7 knives with an ultra-tough handle material with an earthy color and rugged texture inspired by Carhartt’s signature Duck Canvas, the Molasses Bone family with 9 knives that feature a dark brown and bone-colored handle, and the 6 knives in the Rough Black-over-Cream family which are manufactured using a high-quality, durable resin.
These knives are targeted at blue-collar workers who need durable knives for EDC. Case took about three years analyzing Carhartt before realizing just how closely aligned these two companies were, according to an article in Outdoor Hub. New products will be added to the line in the future.
