For Sale: Case/Bose Collab #1, 1999

Post by kootenay joe » Tue Aug 20, 2019 2:52 am

This Case-Bose Wharncliffe Trapper 62048 with ATS-34 steel released in 1999 was the first of the Case-Bose annual collaboration knives. The handles are Chestnut jigged bone. New in original box and leather storage pouch.
I have owned one of nearly all of the Case-Bose collab knives and none of them even come close to the absolutely perfect fit and finish of this knife. It is a good as my best Ken Erickson custom folder.
The Case-Bose collab knives get a lot of advertising & hype but in reality many of the knives fall short of the claimed high standards. This knife is the exception rather than the rule. It simply could not have been better made.
Price $425 which includes shipping from Canada. If you don't love it, return for full refund. PP, personal check or USPS M.O. all accepted.

Surprised you are giving this one up. I searched completed auctions on eBay and didn’t find a single one like this that has been sold recently. I think your price is very fair on this. One this early and this nice I would think would come in north of 500 easily. I’m tempted but when I finally get some pics taken you all will see why I am Not buying this one. 2 Maher and Grosh, two AAPK knives and 2 Whittlers and one Schatt and Morgan all in a two week period so I’m a tapped out for this big of a purchase. I know you will sell it for this, this is way too cheap.

Giving this Case/Bose Collab #1 a BUMP.
As fine as the recent GEC knives are, this Wharncliffe Trapper is in a different 'league'. Truly remarkable workmanship, far better than any of the other Case-Bose collabs i have owned. I bought an ivory Trapper from Tony Bose and the fit & finish on this collab is every bit as fine and it only costs 1/6th as much.
How about $375 shipped ?
Returnable for full refund if you don't think it is worth every dollar of this amount.
