Case Knives are an American tradition, often being passed from generation to generation as they grow older. All Case knives are proudly made in America, and the pocket knives are available in a huge variety of handles and patterns such as the Case Trapper, Stockman, Peanut and Doctor's Knife. Case pocket knives come with genuine nickel silver bolsters, polished to a mirror finish to compliment their well finished blades, which are then painstakingly assembled with up to 160 individual processes, many of them performed by hand. Case began in 1889, and has since gained extreme popularity among knife collector's and users. Some of the older Case Tested and Case XX knives bring thousands of dollars at auctions and knife shows, with almost all knives kept in good condition showing monetary appreciation over time. Just another reason to begin the fun in collecting Case Knives.
