W. R. Case and Sons® is probably the most collected knife brand in America. This brand has been used and collected for over 100 years and, with the exception of a few forays into the modern tactical market, has always been made in the U.S.A. For generations many "firsts" in pocketknives have been Case® knives. These knives are still being handed down from father to son and from grandfather to grandson.

At the 2018 BLADE show, they introduced a traditional style folder with assisted opening. Those were the KickStart Folding Hunters. The TrapperLock Folder is the second in that line. The Kickstart® mechanism is Case's version of a spring assist. Using the thumb stud, move the blade slightly toward the open position and the spring assist takes over to quickly power the blade into the open and locked position.

As part of their Holiday 2021 offerings Case released several models with smooth Autumn Maple Burl wood handle scales. When a tree undergoes some form of stress it creates a burl. This growth has an unconventional grain that resists splintering making it an optimal choice for a handle material. The captivating handle scales are set off nicely with a nickel silver Case Diamon shield inlay and nickel silver bolsters and brass liners. Each knife in this collection is made with Case's own Tru-Sharp stainless steel that has been mirror polished and has a hardness of 54-57 Rc. Mixing old and new, this series features a modern handle material yet retails a classic look. Made in the U.S.A.

Measures 4-1/8" closed with a 3-1/8" clip point blade. Weighs 3.2 oz. Suggested Retail $193.00.

Case Knives

Finally, the W. R. Case Knife Company seems to be in good hands. The family that has guided the Zippo lighter company through so many successful years has begun to make a difference at their knife company. They have called back from retirement, skilled craftsmen who are teaching the current crop of cutlers. These new Case knives look more like those of the 1950's rather than those of the 1970's and 1980's.
