CASE 11, 11-1/2, 11-1/2L and Cheetah thread

The W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has a very rich history that began in 1889 when William Russell (“W.R.”), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning their knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. The company has produced countless treasures and it continues to do so as one of the most collected brands in the world.

Did you ever trade a knife and a year later trade for it back? Glad this one is back in the fold ::tu:: ::tu::

Those are some very rare birds Larry. Congratulations on some amazing pickups.

Thanks for the compliment on my collection Paul! Other members have sure posted some beautiful CASE Swing Guards on this post also.
That includes the one you just posted. Beautiful USA example. Nice red bone.

Not sure if you are aware but there are actually 4 different bone examples in the USA era...

Early model stamp font
Late model stamp font
No model stamp
Extra 1 model stamp

All in USA era. I have an example of each, just never photographed the knives stamps (or lack thereof in one example).

The transition between one and 2 listed above led to the example 3 and 4 listed above by way of factory errors or a very discreet marketing campaign best I can tell. Likely the former but who knows.
