This exciting commemorative knife puts a new twist on a long-time favorite of the Case Knives family. The Case Clasp knife is a model that was first introduced to the world in the early 20th century, during a period of the company's history often referred to as the Case Tested era - a time when the company used handle materials such as bone, stag and celluloids with certain patterns like this one.
|See what Knifeforums founder Jim Nowka has to say about this special partnership and commemorative knife: "It was a year ago when we closed the deal that brought Knifeforums and Blade Magazine into the same house! In early 2012, I contacted my first advertiser on Knifeforums, W.R. Case to discuss a commemorative knife. W.R. Case has been a supporter of Knifeforums since we started in 1998. After some discussion, we decided to do a limited edition Case knife to commemorate the Blade/Knifeforums relationship. We chose a traditional pattern that was first introduced in the 1920's or 1930's, which became an influential pattern in the knife world, really it might be considered one of the first tactical production folders. The W.R. Case Clasp knife, or Bulldog pattern, model 6172 was our choice! Big, bold, and influential, just as Blade Magazine and Knifeforums are in the knife industry."
The pattern of this knife is 72, and it is said to be the largest folding hunting knife that Case makes. Many a collector has found this model of Case knife to be a superb addition to any knife collection. This large Case clasp is a singlebladed jack knife with an upwardly curving handle that tapers to a point, measures 5 1/2” closed and carries a single clip blade.
With this one-of-a-kind commemorative version of this knife, you get the history and proven reliability of the Case brand, as well as the uniqueness of having a knife with the BLADE and Knife Forums logos on the blade.
