At this year’s BLADE Show, which kicks off today in Atlanta, June 4-6, 2021, Case will introduce two modern knife options, precision-built and crafted for today’s doers and the new genre of outdoor enthusiasts -- the Marilla™ and Kinzua™.
“This category introduction is an important milestone for Case Knives,” says Brent Tyler, AVP of Marketing at Case Knives. “The Case brand has maintained deep roots in the outdoor enthusiast community for decades, but with our new Marilla and the Kinzua knives, we are now engaging with the new outdoor consumer looking for more versatile, one-handed opening knives with modern materials and styling. These knives combine expertise perfected over generations with a modern design that meets the needs of today’s trends in everyday carrying. Each is assembled by Case artisans in the same Bradford, Pennsylvania factory where our traditional pocket knives come from.”
The Marilla and the Kinzua, named after local landmarks in the Bradford area, incorporate contemporary materials like high quality S35VN stainless steel blades and anodized handles that can stand up to the rigors of hard work. Each Case EDC knife is engineered with a lightweight aluminum handle and one-handed flipper opening for quick and reliable deployment. The Marilla has a Drop Point blade with a rounded belly for longer cuts, while the Kinzua features a Tanto blade that maintains its thickness to the point, making it a perfect tool for making fine, precise cuts.
The knives will be available this Summer at Case retailers and online at caseknives.com.
