The classic small Swell Center Jack ('25-1/2) is back from the Case Vault for a 2022 limited production run. Dating back to at least the 1940s, this small two-blade Jack was a ubiquitous everyday carry tool in industrial and agricultural environments. The compact size, light weight and iconic soda bottle shape make this as popular for collectors and users today as it was in decades past. This version comes with two Tru-Sharp stainless steel blades, clip and pen, with smooth yellow synthetic covers.

Brand new directly from W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co.

Blades: The stainless steel blades are finished in a bright satin polish with generous nail nicks for opening. The main blade is a larger clip point for utility work while the small pen blade handles detail work or lighter tasks. Both come with shallow hollow grinds for optimal slicing performance.

Handle: In classic Case style the handle consists of solid steel back springs with brass liner and pin construction. Polished nickel silver bolsters frame classic Case yellow synthetic covers for a practical, hardworking handle. The sturdy back springs offer simple, smooth slip joint operation with a solid half stop for safety. A Case "Oval Script" shield decorates the front.

Case Tru-Sharp: Case Tru-Sharp is another name for 420HC, a stainless steel that provides excellent rust resistance, ease of re-sharpening and moderate edge retention while being exceptionally tough for a stainless steel. With appropriate heat treatment, it is said to preform similarly to VG-10 in wear resistance.
