Today, Case is owned by Zippo Manufacturing Company, makers of the world famous Zippo® windproof lighter, another family-owned business based in Bradford. The company’s original knife concepts and manufacturing methods have been recognized with awards and features from major print publications, international trade organizations and events, broadcast television shows and major motion pictures.
A unique tang stamp dating system used since the very early days of its history has made the Case brand one of the world’s favorite collectable brands. The Case Collectors Club, with 19,000 active members, is the largest known knife collecting association in the world.
Case’s pioneering spirit is shown in several of its original knife patterns, like the CopperLock®, Baby Butterbean®, Cheetah® , Cheetah Cub®, Sod Buster®, XX-Changer®, Baby Doc, Kodiak Hunter®, Tiny Trapper, Mako®, RussLock®, Hunter Trapper, Tiny Muskrat, Jr. Scout, Sway Back Jack, Hobo®, and all-new BackPocket. Case’s commitment to quality is evident in the 125 pairs of hands that it takes to create just one knife. Case knives start with carefully shaped handles made from a wide range of genuine materials like Brazilian 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 able to stand the tests of time and use.
The brand’s popularity is underscored by the knives it manufactures under licensing agreements with popular American icons like Boy Scouts of America®, Ducks Unlimited®, Elvis Presley®, John Deere™, John Wayne® (Wayne Enterprises), Johnny Cash and National Wild Turkey Federation.
