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.

I went last weekend to Santa Fe new Mexico and saw a cutlery shop in old downtown. He didn't have much that I was interested in, all new knives. But it was a cool shop and we got to talking. He had some Stewart Yellowhorse case knives there and told me that Stewart hand delivered them to him about every 3 months or so. His opinion was that Stewart's work was much superior to his brother David but wasn't as big of a name. Not sure if this was a marketing speech or truth but it was an interesting conversation. I didn't buy any but did take pictures of his Yellowhorse display. Nice knives.

I knew about David and Brian but was unfamiliar with Stewart who is half Irish but raised on a reservation. Then there is Steve...and how many other Yellowhorses?
