Case & Case related knives over 100 years old

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.

Thanks, Ken, Jerry, and Mike ,interesting, I don’t believe I have seen the barehead stag as well, plus this one is torched. Very unique handles but they appear original. ::tu::

I picked this one up from the Blade show. It is a Case Bros Little Valley 1900-1914 Stag jumbo whittler. It is a hand full and I really like the Stag.

Thanks for looking ::tu::

Her is another pickup from the blade show A Red Winterbottom Small Coke 6225 1905 1914 W R Case & Sons. May be a Salesman's Sample as there is remnants of ink next to the tang.

Thanks for looking ::tu:: ::tu::

Wow Tom this is great find. Do you think the pattern would be 53076? The spear blade is awesome. ::tu:: ::tu::

Jerry,
That was my 1st thought when I saw it but the length is 3 9/16” closed whereas the 076 is 4”. I believe it is a 6370 jumbo sleeve board whittler. Only one I have encountered ::tu::

Tom, I think you are right with the 70 pattern. In addition to matching on the length that awesomely swedged and sturdy looking spear blade matches to the reference pictures I found for a 6370. Great add to your pre 1920 collection!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments on these two,I like the whittler the best but will always go after the red Winterbottom Knives when I find them.
Greg, I tried worms for bait but ended up using $100 dollar bills. ::ds::
