W.R. Case and Sons

W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is an American manufacturer of premium, hand-crafted cutlery based in Bradford, Pennsylvania.

The company’s rich history began in 1889 when four brothers – William Russell (W.R.), Jean, John, and Andrew Case (a.k.a. ‘The Case Brothers’) began fashioning knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. Today Case is owned by American Brands; which is the Zippo Manufacturing Company, makers of the famous Zippo windproof lighter.

Case uses a unique tang stamp dating system used since the very early days of its history. This interesting dating system has helped to make the Case brand one of the world’s favorite collectible brands. The Case Collectors Club, with 19,000 active members, is the largest known knife collecting association in the world. Case’s commitment to quality is evident in the over 160 steps that it takes to create each knife. Case knives start with carefully shaped handles made from a wide range of genuine materials like cattle bone, stag antler, buffalo horn, mother-of-pearl, exotic woods and stones. Brass, nickel, and silver components highlight each form, bringing together knives that are not just beautiful, but highly functional as well.
