case knife display

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 just noticed that there is a 6214 and a 6214 1/2 in your display. Also a 62055 below them. If I'm not mistaken, all of those were discontinued around 1975 so that means your display originated sometime before 1975. Have you looked at the dates on the knives. Are they all the same year? Just curious.

Good observation, when I looked a this display when it was posted, my guess was 1973 to 1974. Based on the number of normally bone patters with delrin handles, also the 14 patterns that as you correctly indicate, were discontinued in 75.

The 62055 was in production through 78, however.
