Ode To The 07

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.

This one just arrived. Always enjoy adding another 07W to the pile...especially when it's one I don't already have.

Two final drops of sweetness and my 'honey hole' is all played out; no more fish in the Bay.

Never thought I'd say this, but I think I've finally reached peak mini trapper: Mini T Critical Mass. ::tired::

Was avoiding these "themed" 07s because I thought they were kind of cheesy; but, when I saw this one it reminded me of my dog, Lehua, who passed away in 2017, and I just couldn't resist. Turns out, it looks better in person than in photos...much nicer than I was expecting.

Box label shows the date of manufacture as 10/26/07, although the two "X" tang stamp indicates 2008. (OCD Monkey hates it when that happens :? )

Oh my! The Brick Red Case Select is a real beaut. I must not be keeping a very close eye on The Bay 'cause I didn't see that one.

Yeah, except for the Army edition I bought for my Grandson and the USMC edition I bought for myself (slap the Eagle, Globe & Anchor on it and an old Marine will buy a dog t**d) I too stay away from the "themed" editions.

I did however see this Wharnie in Antique Sawcut Bone and it's on it's way.

Glad you got that one, jerryd. I was watching it and almost put in a bid, but despite my proclivity for "hoarding" 07Ws, I decided that one of this style was enough (for now). But, if it had been a few $$ less at the end of the auction, I don't think I could have resisted (at least it's good that you kept it in the "family"). Super deal on a great 07W--Congrats. ::tu::

Thanks ~Q~. I too thought it was a good deal. I'm glad you laid off of it. It's only coming from Springfield so I would expect it to be here on Wednesday. ::pray::

OCD Monkey is going nuts trying to figure out what "TBT" stands for. ::cb:: ::shrug::

I’m not positive QT, but i think that “TBT RED” is actually supposed to be “TST RED”, which is the abbrev. for “Tested Red”! Like I said, not 100%, but I have had Tested Red handled knives in the past and that’s how they were marked on the box!

Thank you, Whittler 21, for sharing your knowledge. I never would have thought that "TBT" was actually "TST", but when I compare the middle letter to the "SS" printed on the label in the pattern number above, it looks the same.

So, mystery solved, OCD Monkey mollified, sanity saved; a good day in 07 world.

And, just in case you missed it the first time around, and because it's truly a beautiful color which is worth another dekko (and also because I'm an incorrigible show-off), here it is again...2007 Case 6207W TeSTed Red Wharncliffe Mini Trapper.

Been looking at that one since before they were available at Shepherd Hill. Still not sure how I feel about it. Wharncliffe is an automatic winner but the handles are............????????????? ::shrug:: And the price is about $20 north of what I think it should be but of course they didn't consult me when pricing it.

jerryd: I agree with everything you said 100%.

When I first saw this knife at Shepherd Hills, I was hooked by the wharnie and didn't pay much attention to any other details. Thought about waiting for it to show up on the secondary market, but, alas, I am not a patient man and I've been '"jonesing" for a new Mini T hit for awhile now. So, the die was cast and the plastic deployed (by OCD Mini Trapper Monkey) before my better judgement had a chance to talk me out of it. SOSAD! (Same Old Song And Dance)
