Great knife, Bought it for my nephew. He loves it. I am in my 40's and I remember my dad telling me if and when you buy a knife buy a CASE, BUCK, OLD TIMER and the order. Although times have changed and there is great knives out there. This knife is great for skinning we are country folks.
This knife was a gift for my son and he loves it. It's just the right size for him to carry in his pocket and have it handy when needed as larger knives tend to be too much to carry around all the time.
My dad had a lot of experience with the manufacturer's knives. I was just as pleased with the knives as I thought I would be. The blades are extremely sharp. The balance is good and they are not bulky in your pocket. As claimed by the manufacturer, I think they will last a lifetime or more.
I received the case medium Stockman with the worn red bone handle as a Christmas gift from my father. What a gorgeous solid tool. I've been carrying an Opinel number 6 Carbone for the past year and that is a good knife (great blade) too for the money, but I am an admirer of quality and aesthetics. That is why the Stockman is in my pocket and the Opinel is next to the vegetable peeler in my kitchen drawer
What a knife! Very high quality and a robust beautiful design.
Like the knife, been carrying a pocket knife for 55 years and have seen a lot of them. My dad usually carried a case and I bought one 4-5 years ago and still have it. The only thing I have to gripe about is the blade tarnishes easily and lots of the stuff doesn't come off. I have even taken steel wool to it to clean it. I holds an edge pretty good and sharpens easily. I'm an old timer and still use a stone but use only a very fine stone.
About Case Cutlery
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 RussLockÂ® which can be opened with one hand and this yearÂs new Mini Trapper with Golf Tool and HoboÂ® with Spoon. Case offers hundreds of different styles of knives, including many original designs such as the popular CopperLockÂ, Baby Butterbean, Sod BusterÂ® and XX-ChangerÂ®.
CaseÂs 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 TruSharpÂ 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 doesnÂt 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 ÂXXÂ 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 Â not once, but twice. It is more time consuming to produce a Case knife Â on average, each knife takes eight weeks to make and is touched by more than 125 sets of hands Â but the folks at Case believe the end result is a knife unlike any other on the market today.
