NEED Case Folding Hunter clip blade

Postby Tony_Wood » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:11 pm

As the title says I need a clip blade for a Case folding hunter.
My son was given this knife when he was a young boy. The clip blade looks like it was broken, and then ground with a dremel.

I would like to restore it to its original shape and usefulness.

Thanks for the help.

Tony I don't know if you're aware of it or not but there is a lot of difference in the thickness of the blades on the folding hunters. During the XX era they can go from about .085 to .120. What era are you looking for and what thickness?

Thank you sir. I did not know about the thickness differences. The knife was made in 1978.
The blade existing blade thickness is .103, but the backspring is .111. I suppose anything close would be made to work.
