CASE XX Baby Butterbean 1 of 25 Shadow mint 62132 SS

Up for auction is a mint Case XX 62132 SS Baby Butterbean from 2001. This knife is 2 3/4" long and features autumn bone handles. I am opening at .99 with no reserve after that. The photos show the actual knife you will receive. This knife has 9 dots.

This knife is very collectable because it is part of the Shadow set of 8 knives made in 2001. Only 500 of these shadow knives were made. The shadow knives all were unique in that the patterns had no bolsters. I do not know for a fact, but believe that none of these knives were made without bolsters before or since.

This knife is also extremely collectable because it is one of a limited run of 25 knives. The Case factory, in the early 2000's, began marking the last 25 knives shipped each year with a second date shield. They also marked the first 25 knives shipped the next year with the new years date. The back of this knife has a date shield showing 12-31-01, meaning it was among the last 25 knives shipped in 2001 that was made in this variation. T are only 24 others like this.

Handles: The handles are matched autumn bone with a Rogers jig. T are no cracks or chips in the handles.

Blades: The blades are polished stainless steel with a flat grind. The blades open and close correctly. T are no pits or shadows on the blades, however, t are very light opening
