About Case

W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is an American manufacturer of premium, hand-crafted knives that are passed down for generations.  Based in Bradford, PA, Case’s offerings include a wide variety of knives that fit virtually any need, from convenient folding pocketknives and fixed blade sporting knives to limited edition commemoratives and collectibles. 

The company’s rich history 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. A unique tang stamp dating system used since the very early days of its history has cemented the Case brand as one of the most recognized and valuable collectibles in the industry.  Today the Case Company is owned by Zippo Manufacturing, another family-owned business based in Bradford.  

In 2007, Case celebrated the 160th anniversary since the birth of W.R. Case, the first man to serve as President of the Company.  His guidance was critical in stabilizing the company’s early finances while building the company’s reputation as a dependable producer of high-quality products. 

Today, Case credits its associates with maintaining its industry position by blending innovative design with an inexhaustible array of materials. Case’s pioneering spirit is shown in several of its original knife patterns, like the CopperLock®, Baby Butterbean®, Sod Buster®, XX-Changer®, Baby Doc, Tiny Trapper, and the all-new Hunter Trapper, Tiny Muskrat, and Jr. Scout.

To further expand its product offerings, the company has secured licensing agreements with several American icons including: Boy Scouts of America®, Ducks Unlimited®, John Deere, Sturm, Ruger and Company, Inc., Johnny Cash (under license from the John R. Cash Revocable Trust), John Wayne (under license from Wayne Enterprises, and others.

Case’s commitment to quality is evident in the 125 pairs of hands it takes to create one knife.  Artisans shape handles from rare Brazilian cattle bone and Buffalo horn to more delicate substances like rosewood, mother-of-pearl, and stag. Metals like brass, nickel, and silver highlight each form, bringing together a knife that’s not only beautiful, but one that will stand the tests of time and use. 

The Case Collectors Club is the largest knife collecting association in the world with 18,000 members.  Club members enjoy exclusive knife offers, a quarterly publication entitled The Case Collector, and other benefits including an open invitation to participate in a “Walk and Talk Tour” of the Case factory.  The company co-sponsors a biennial Swap Meet with Zippo that lures enthusiasts from all corners of the globe to Bradford, PA to buy, trade, and share their most prized collection pieces.
