In March 2010, W.R. Case & Sons' Hawkbill Pruner received the International Knife Award in the Outdoor category at the IWA 2010 & Outdoor Classics show in Nüremburg, Germany. This was quite an honor considering 2010 was the first time Case had participated in this show.

The original Hawkbill was a workingman's favorite, but Case designer Scott Freer set out to improve on that design. Using original knives from the factory collection along with advanced state-of-the-art computer technology he created one of the most aggressive knives to be introduced by Case in recent years. The extreme curve of the blade is ideal for most any rough job from pruning your prize roses to slicing through a thick piece of carpet.

The blade measures a full 3" and is made from 420 stainless at 54-57 Rc. The knife is available with Amber Peachseed Jigged Bone handles. The bolsters and oval Case inlay are nickel silver and the liners are brass. Measures 4" closed and weighs about 3.3 oz. Made in the U.S.A. Suggested retail is $105.20.

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.
