Father’s Day

Father’s Day

As the title of this happy little post is suggesting, we’re getting close to Father’s Day, a time-honored event for the old man that helped us all keep on keeping on, and there’s a good way to help celebrate and give him a helping hand this year; A Case Pocket Knife. Just in from the […]

Old Growth; New Life

Old Growth; New Life

The rugged and untamed lands of 18th century America, when our nation was just newly formed—had an abundance of what we now call “Old Growth Forest.” Harvesting that lumber was a way of life for thousands, and the easiest most economical way to get it to the sawmill was by river.  Men called “Log Drivers” or “River […]

The American Civil War

The American Civil War

The Civil War was one of the most bloody and vicious conflicts America has ever engaged in. With a death total equaling 2% of the entire nation, and disease running rampant through the frontlines, it claimed more American lives in total than WW1, WW2, Korea and Vietnam combined, and shattered families in two, separating abolitionists […]

The Case Bose-Reid Eddyville Event

Eddyville’s show has always been a highlight for many of our customers and this year’s show was no slouch. It was a busy day Saturday, full of laughs, stories, sales and excitement.

Loafing Around

Hard to think that popping two pieces of bread into a toaster is a revolutionary act, but, well up until the late 1920’s, it was.

Doctor, Doctor, Give Me The News

We’re kicking off the New Years with some information for you about an old school knife. The Doctor’s Knife, to be exact. This tool has had more than a few years under its belt, created in the 1800’s for traveling sawbones for the smaller finesse based work a doc might see, from cutting and sorting […]

Smashing Pumpkins

Smashing Pumpkins

In the late 60s and early 70’s the pocket knife craze was alive and in full swing. Any hardware store worth their salt would have a good collection to choose from, and if they were a Case, you’d be seeing the bright orange of the pumpkin boxes behind the shelf. Originally, these boxes were used […]

New Arrivals

New Arrivals

A two new releases have caught my eye, thought I’d mention to them to you right quick. First is the Starlight Kirinite. I’ve been really pleased with how the Kirinite stuff has turned out. It’s a really bright synthetic material and, judging by some of its earlier releases, it can house a lot of variety of […]
