A 2 Knife Set with 6 Knives

The set picture shows the two knife 1984 Call of the Wild set with gold wash blades. Notice that one of the knives has a straight ground tang, and the other has a new grind. At this time I have documented 6 different variations that occur in the set. If you go to KnifeDB.com you […]


Interesting Group.  The TVA 50th Anniversary

One of the great things about collecting Case knives is the richness and diversity of the collecting possibilities.  Take for example, the Tennessee Valley Authority 50th Anniversary knife. I found my first one  with a 1983 tang stamp date.  That was also the year of the TVA 50th Anniversary.  It had the new grind blades […]


The Alabama Gun Collectors Case Knife Series

Here is a very early series of  6 collector knives.  It was made for the Alabama Gun Collectors Association 25th thru 30th Anniversary.  Six trappers make up the series, each with a different handle.   The knifes were made from 1979 to 1984 in very low quantities for the time.  For example,  the Kentucky Bicentennial knives […]

2012 Mint Set Factory Error

Here’s an interesting factory error. In 2012, the Case factory made a 7 knife mint set with red peach seed jigged bone and slanted bolsters. These were sold in an unusually shaped wood and glass frame. The second picture shows a closeup of how the knives looked. BUT, notice the picture of the bottom of […]

Why does Custom Work Matter

We just added custom work number 6000 a week or so ago.  We consider custom work to be anything added to a Case knife that is not usually there, like a serial number, or something on the blade or handle, etc. So what, you say?  Well custom work is important to the specialty knife collector.  […]


Collectable Knife Error From the Early 90’s

My wife, Jean, has been busy adding 1991 knives and she noticed a significant factory error that I haven’t seen published.   It involves the motto of the United States, “E Pluribus Unum”. In the late 1980’s and 1990’s a series of  trappers was made and they included a silver dollar in the box.  Some were […]


Happy Halloween–Case

The relatively new Halloween styled knives have proven to be a winner for the Case factory. They have escalated in price at a rapid pace.  They are typically orange or white smooth bone with laser designs.  The blades are usually serrated, hence the name “Pumpkin Carvers”. Thanks to David Tucker (Barre boy), and his efforts, […]
