Details

A 19th century jack knife for the modern world, custom knife maker Tony Bose designed the Case Sway Back Jack as a lady's and gentleman's slip joint folding knife that is at home in the office and the wood shop. Compact for carry, the Sway Back has a comfortable, sweeping handle paired with a rugged Wharncliffe blade with a traditional Case build. This version has a flat ground, Tru-Sharp stainless steel blade, worked nickel silver bolsters and polished Bowtie shield and smooth Ebony wood covers.

Brand new directly from W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company, USA.

Blades: The Tru-Sharp stainless steel blade is bright polish finished with a generous nail nick for opening. A flat ground Wharncliffe profile blade is robust enough for heavier work while being fine enough for the detail work. A stylish long swedge on the spine and flat grind give this blade balanced performance and durability for all around utility.

Handles: Handsome, smooth dark Ebony wood covers are fit between two sets of tool worked nickel silver bolsters for a striking and classic look with a custom feel. The covers are attached with brass pins to brass liners in the traditional style and the sweeping sway back design is comfortable and secure in multiple grips. The front cover sports an embossed Case Bowtie shield while a stainless steel back spring delivers smooth slip-joint operation with full and half stops.

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.
