Limited to 2023 production

W. R. Case and Sons® is probably the most collected knife brand in America and the limited productions they produce are some of the most collectible. Case typically offers special knives to dealers that are available only if ordered at the SHOT Show in January each year. During the past few years, they have also offered special productions that could be ordered by dealers only at several Spring shows. These are limited to the quantities ordered during those Spring shows.

This two blade trapper with smooth navy blue synthetic handle scales and a Stars and Stripes Case Shield is one of those offered during the Spring 2023 tradeshows. The standard Trapper was introduced in the mid 1920s. It has 2 blades from the same end of the handle: a clip and spey blade. This version has a 3-1/4" clip point and a 3-1/4" spey blade. The blades are Case’s Tru-Sharp surgical stainless at 54-57 Rc. The fluted nickel silver bolsters, brass liners and mirror polished blades are set nicely against the smooth navy blue sythentic handle scales, making it a very attractive knife. Ships in a cardboard cigar style box. Measures 4-1⁄8" closed. Weighs 3.6 oz. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested retail is $110.00.

Case Knives

W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is an American manufacturer of traditional pocket knives, limited edition commemoratives and collectibles. It makes American made traditional pocket knives in a variety of patterns, blade styles, and handle materials. They are particularly well known for their specialized dying process - creating beautiful and colorful bone handles. Case prefers to use their proprietary Tru-Sharp stainless steel. Tru-Sharp sharpens and polishes easily and is enjoyed by collectors all over. 

The roots of the company span all the way back to 1889. W.,R. Case & Sons notably made knives in World War 1, notably the M3 Fighting Knife for servicemen and the V-42 stiletto for the Devil’s Brigade. They also made knives for NASA astronauts for when they touched back down on earth and were waiting to be picked up. The Case Company is currently owned by the Zippo Manufacturing Company, based in the same city, which is well known for their Zippo lighters. You can see great synergy between the companies as they share equipment and expertise like inlaid dyed bone handles and laser engraving machinery.
