Dating boker knives
The bone used by Case originates from Brazilian Zebu cattle which is far more dense than other types of cattle.
Each Case knife is handled by over 100 employees during it’s creation process over over 160 steps and this results in a truly impeccable quality control process.
It became popular during the Vietnam war and carries a recessed tang to avoid the edge causing wear and tear on pockets.
In addition, the pocket end bolster extends upward to shield any blade corners.
The clip blade is used for the most challenging tasks while the pen or spey is usually put to work on smaller jobs.
It carries the famous clip blade using Tru-Sharp surgical steel together with sheepfoot and spey blades.Case knives are manufactured from US steels and incorporate many of the Company’s patented production processes particularly with heat treatment.The most common steels used are Case’s own Tru-Sharp stainless steel which carries a high carbon content to promote edge retention and Chrome Vanadium which is Case’s own unique formula allowing for easy re-sharpening (though this does require frequent oiling to avoid discoloration).The team later began producing and selling knives to the military with the advent of World War I where their brand really began to take off.In more recent times Case was bought out by the Zippo Manufacturing Company (who make the popular Zippo lighters) who are also based in Bradford, PA.
