With the reveal of the recent set of Case knife flippers, there comes a question as to what the names mean. It’s an interesting little back story to each of them; one that I think is worth sharing, since they really tie in well with Bradford, if not Pennsylvania as a whole. To start with, […]

Drove my Chevy to the Levee

Drove my Chevy to the Levee

Recently we’ve had a collection of Chevrolet knives arrive from Case for us, ready to go out the door. Can’t go wrong with a Chevy, but it made me wonder some regarding the company themselves. So, naturally, I did a little digging to see what I could find on their roots. Louis Chevrolet, the sun […]

On the road to Damascus

On the road to Damascus

Dating back to even before the 3rd centaury, Damascus has long been an object of desire, both in aesthetical and practical use.

  We’re well on our way through the year and boy what a year its been. Unprecedented, is what comes to mind in regards to how you could describe the past few months, and I think I can speak for everyone when I say we’re now all scrambling to make up for lost time. But […]

The Case Tang Stamp Series

The Case Tang Stamp Series

Tang stamps are a useful tool. That, of course, is the understatement of the century; Tang stamps are a quick way to get a rundown on a timeframe for when a Case knife was turned from parts into a full-on functioning knife, and serve to narrow down a production date within a decade on average. […]

On July 20th, 1969, three intrepid men aboard the Apollo 11 spaceflight took to the sea of stars above, and, with the backing of thousands of hours of ingenuity, commitment, and planning, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed upon the moon and claimed it for mankind.
