Recent Reviews - Case Cutlery Knife Selection
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.
I really like the knife not only for the quality but for sentimental reasons. My Dad and. Grandpa carried Case knives. The stockman. 3 blade is the right size the amber bone handle beautifully made and the construction very sound, thanks Knife Depot.
The Mini Copperlock Chestnut pocket knife is like all Case knives - good quality, looks great, and has razor sharp blade. I really like the looks of the chestnut handle and the stainless steel blade. I got it for a good price at Knife Depot.
I've owned Case knives for 50yrs. This particular model for about 3 years. It's slim yet very strong and will handle tasks beyond its size. I don't pry or hammer, or chop with my knives. You probably shouldn't either. If you get the cv steel it will get wicked sharp very easily. It will also tarnish and rust easily too if you don't keep it cleaned and oiled. I don't mind the extra maintenance. If you work in a wet environment, try the ss model. It too gets very sharp but resists rust and wont tarnish. It also won't turn fruit brown when you cut it if you care about that sort of stuff. I own both models. These are lifetime work knives.
Very nice knife, and I'm very happy with it.
This knife was purchased for a Xmas gift from my grandson, loved it when he opened it and it was what he requested due to his father also having a similar knife!
The Hobo knife I purchased by Case is of the highest quality and surpassed my expectation. Price was high but worth it when you get this quality of product. Couldn't be happier.
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.
