The Case Country Tour originated from the late 1950s and 60s, when Case discovered that people were traveling to Case dealers near and far to find the knives they really wanted. Collectors would encounter one another during these trips and form friendships over their knife collections. Case decided to formalize the development of these relationships by hosting consumer events across the country that celebrated their fervent fans and the traditions that were born out of Case knives.
