Recent Reviews - Case Knives

I am very pleased with my Case Bowie knife. It has great balance and looks great!

I have owned several of these knives in the past 20 years and have a new one in the drawer now. They are very thin and light weight, you can carry it easily in any kind of pants pocket and not even know that it is present. It is very sharp and pinned sturdy and will suffice for almost any job. It snaps shut when you close it and you can tell that it is Case quality all the way. It used to be $10 years ago, but at around $20 today you are receiving a very good bargain that will last and last for an everyday knife to carry.

This is the third Case small pen I've owned...I would highly recommend to my family & friends

Used it for around 2 seasons skinned around 20 whitetail.. Gut hook is now very dull. also find that my average height of 5"7 makes the leather sheath ride low on thigh when waking and sits high on the hip when driving and while sitting in tree stand. This Christmas I purchased the Buck 191BR Zipper hunting knife for my son. During a school day I borrowed my sons knife for an after noon doe hunt just few days before the season ends. So determined to season the blade of the Zipper and disappointed that 10 days of hunting with my son we came up empty handed. As the barometer reading readings indicate a slow and falling barometric pressure. I got dressed and the first thing recognized was that zipper felt like an extension to my hip un like the Case Cutlery Gut Hook Hunter. The balance of the Zipper in hand noticeable due to the curvature and brass ending on the handle. The e Zipper is extremely sharp and produced some of the cleanest cuts while skinning and quartering a late season Doe on the forest during the night . Do not get me wrong I like my case as and many other skinning knives. My all time favorite knife and most seasoned is the Browning 322-608 Kodiak Twin-Blade Field .

The knife was much better than the picture. It arrived in a timely manner and was in perfect condition

The quality of the Case 6233 is excellent. I just bought another one this morning. They are small enough where they don't wear a hole in your pocket and I don't even know it's there, but if it isn't there I sure notice it. I have owned this model knife more at least 15 years and would highly recommend it to anyone.

About Case Cutlery

Case Knives

W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company of Bradford, Pennsylvania, is one of the most recognized names in the knife industry. The company, which has made handcrafted knives since 1889, has introduced innovation while continuing to make knives the old-fashioned way - through the hands of skilled craftsmen.

Case offers knives to fit virtually any need, from the convenience of a handy pocketknife to working and hunting knives and specialty cutlery such as the RussLock® which can be opened with one hand and this year’s new Mini Trapper with Golf Tool and Hobo® with Spoon. Case offers hundreds of different styles of knives, including many original designs such as the popular CopperLock‰, Baby Butterbean, Sod Buster® and XX-Changer®.

Case’s commitment to quality begins with the materials used in production and is perfected by the talented hands of the master craftsmen and skilled employees who make Case knives.

Only the finest handle materials are used by Case. Materials include: imported Brazilian cattle bone used because of its density and strength; hardwoods such as rosewood; elegant mother-of-pearl and the new turquoise and black Jet stone.

In addition to a wide variety of handle materials, Case distinguishes certain handles with specially created patterns called jigs. Jigged bone is bone that has been notched to give it a rough texture. Jigging is done by hand for any knife sporting a Vintage Bone handle. Case has a variety of jig patterns including: Smooth, Standard, Rogers, Corn Cob, Rogers Corn Cob and PeachSeed.

Case customers have a choice of two different types of steel: the convenience of TruSharp™ surgical steel, a high-carbon stainless cutlery steel, or the tradition of chrome vanadium. While the surgical steel blades are easier to maintain and more resistant to rust and corrosion, many traditionalists prefer chrome vanadium, the original type of blade used by Case.

Case spares no expense on the internal components of its knives. While the average consumer doesn’t always notice the genuine brass liners or the nickel silver bolsters, these special touches are key to making a knife that will last for generations.

Perhaps the most famous quality assurance Case has is the distinctive “XX” that each Case knife wears like a badge of honor. The stamp of quality on each Case knife blade signifies that the blade has been properly tempered and tested — not once, but twice. It is more time consuming to produce a Case knife — on average, each knife takes eight weeks to make and is touched by more than 125 sets of hands — but the folks at Case believe the end result is a knife unlike any other on the market today.
