Case XX 1979 5143 SSP Stainless Founders Stag Big Daddy Barlow

Clip blade is 4.5 inches from tip to tang. Almost 9 inches when fully opened. Has a good snap when closing. No cracks in stag. Nickel bolsters, brass liners. New, never carried, never re-sharpened. Could use a good cleaning, but will leave that to future owner. Comes with official Case display that can be hung on the wall.

The Case XX Founders Knife is a limited production, special issue knife commemorating the fathers of W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company. Color etched into the high carbon stainless steel blade are likenesses of J. Russell Case (right), his father W. R. Case (left) and grandfather, Job Russell Case (center).

W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company was incorporated in 1905, the result primarily of the efforts of young J. Russell Case. Backed by his father, W. R. Case, J. Russell had decided to go into business for himself after having sold knives for Case Brothers Cutlery Co. (owned by his uncle). Job Russell Case (J. Russell’s grandfather) was pictured on much of the company’s literature to lend credence to the stability of the new company.

Each knife in this Founders edition is expertly handcrafted and carries its own serial number engraved in the tang of the high carbon stainless steel blade. Four series of numbers, 1 through 5,000 each, will be prefixed by the letter, C, A, S, or E. Handles are hand fitted Genuine Stag. Liners are solid brass. Blades feature Case’s famous razor sharp polished edge. Display box is made from select polished northern hardwood.
