BRADFORD, Pa. (Feb. 23, 2024)  W .R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company (Case Knives), a leading American manufacturer of premium knives, will showcase its new Bridgeline series along with other new product offerings at the Fort Worth Convention Center, the site of 2024 Blade Show Texas, Feb. 23-24. Legendary custom slipjoint maker and Case collaborator Bill Ruple (Pleasanton, Texas) will be on hand to meet and greet show attendees. Case will also welcome Arkansas-based custom knife craftsman Chris Taylor to the Fort Worth Convention Center exhibit booth to introduce a line of Chris Taylor Hunters, a special brand collaboration launching March 1. 

The Bridgeline series, including the new LonghouseTM and HighbanksTM models, is the latest collection to join the legacy brand’s growing portfolio of everyday carry, everyday capable (EDC) knives. Inspired by traditional patterns, these screwed-together designs are precision crafted with durable aluminum frames and bolsters, which help minimize weight. Both Bridgeline knives feature tough, luxury composite and wood handle materials like Micarta® and rosewood, with premium CPM20CV blades for excellent edge retention and rust prevention, plus a ball bearing pivot and a steel deep-carry pocket clip for convenient, easy access. 

The Longhouse and Highbanks, like the Marilla and Kinzua EDC models, are named in honor of popular outdoor recreation areas and landmarks near the Case factory in Bradford, Pa., the brand's home since 1905.

“In honor of 135 years of legendary craftsmanship, Case is kicking off 2024 with our newest lightweight and durable modern styles that give a nod to the brand’s heritage,” says Brent Tyler, Associate Vice President of Marketing at Case. “From the new Bridgeline series to our tactical modern EDC line and the traditional patterns returning to our portfolio, attendees at Blade Show Texas can expect to see new, cutting-edge innovation and the excellence in craftsmanship that has epitomized the Case brand throughout its long history.”

As a long-time supporter of the U.S. military, the law enforcement community and first responders, Case is launching a new tactical EDC series with specialized features and updated, modern designs built for round-the-clock dependability. Case is passionately committed to supporting these professionals in their highly specialized fields by providing them with tools they can count on, no matter the job at hand. 

Also in 2024, the Chris Taylor collection from Case will debut, featuring handsome fixed blade hunters co-designed by the popular knife craftsman and offered in three different styles: the CT1, featuring OD Green Burlap Micarta® handle with a Nitro V Clip blade, the CT2, with Black Carbon Fiber Weave and an S35VN Drop Point blade, and the CT3, with Orange Textured G-10 handle and a 1095CS Skinner blade. Providing enhanced strength, stability and functionality, each style features a fully exposed tang and a modern design style that fans of Chris Taylor have come to expect from his custom works. Each is backed by Case’s limited lifetime warranty. 

To further commemorate its 135-year history, Case has brought out the Razor pattern from the Case XX® Vault to manufacture it throughout 2024. The Razor, which Case began manufacturing prior to 1940, will be available in two configurations; a single-bladed version with a broad Clip blade with a uniquely curved tip, and a two-bladed version with an added Pen blade. The Razor will be offered in more than a dozen handle styles, including Smooth Abalone, Micarta, Smooth Brown Maple Burl Wood and Sawcut Jig Caribbean Blue Bone. 

Bringing more exciting designs into the mix, Case is also introducing new traditional folding knife families with handle styles like Black Curly Oak, Natural Bone, Seafoam Green G-10 and Yellow Bone in a mix of current and returning patterns and styles.
