January 22, 2018, Bradford, Pa. – W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co. is unveiling several new items. A few of the featured products on display include the latest partnership with Winkler Knives, a collaboration with renowned knifemaker Tony Bose, the return of the Doctor’s Knife pattern, and the introduction of new knife families including Crandall Jigged Olive Green Bone and the American Workman series.
Case® Winkler Recurve Utility No. 6
The Case® Winkler Recurve Utility No. 6 is the latest knife project between Case and Winkler Knives to honor American heroes like Harold Bologna, a U.S. Navy Seal (ret.) of 22 years who valiantly overcame bilateral lower leg amputations after injuries sustained in Afghanistan in 2015. This knife was designed in part by Bologna in his quest to have a high-performance tool that’s ready for use across a variety of environments. The result blends first-rate craftsmanship with durability and American ingenuity.
Case® Bose Premium Stockman
Collaborations between Case and acclaimed custom knifemaker Tony Bose are known throughout the industry for their innovative yet traditional knife designs, and this year's is no exception. The Case® Bose Premium Stockman family carries five different handle styles to make a combined production of 1,000 complete knives. Each knife features carefully hand-swedged Clip, Sheepfoot and Spey blades made of high-performance 154-CM stainless alloy. Satin
finished bolsters and a specially milled interior liner ensure extra-smooth blade function. A steel, pinned-on Arrowhead-shaped shield ensures a lasting fit. It also comes packaged with a half-moon shaped suede leather zippered pouch.
Case Doctor’s Knife
Case is dusting off the tooling to manufacture the popular Doctor's Knife pattern throughout 2018. The pattern dates back to the 1930s, with a history that invokes images of the family doctor who carried this knife in a portable medical
kit and used it to tend to patients on house calls. While the blades were occasionally used for onsite administering of sutures and cutting bandages, they were also used to split pills. The knife's distinctive squared cap end bolster was used to crush pills into a powder before it was added to a capsule or mixed in a liquid or food. The spatula blade, available on select models only, acted as a scoop/stir stick. Doctors and druggists alike found the Spatula blade especially helpful when counting pills to fill prescriptions.
Crandall® Jigged Olive Green Bone Family
This stunning design combines understated elegance with the worker’s favorite tool. Case Crandall® bone jigging comes alive when paired with olive green coloration and snappy strike lines on a folding knife’s end bolsters. This knife family, featuring mirror-polished Tru-Sharp™ surgical steel blades, is made up of seven patterns.
Its name says is all – the robust American Workman is ready to take on any task with its Tru-Sharp™ surgical steel blades, radiant Red Synthetic handle, and user-friendly contours that rest easy in the hand of its hard-working owner. Making a bold, rugged statement, the American Worker backs it up with outstanding performance at a value price point. This family consists of seven patterns.

Boasting a Corn Cob jigging style that appeals to young and old alike, each knife undergoes a careful hand-finishing process to create a classic, worn look and feel. Eight patterns make up this classic family, all of which feature mirror-polished Tru-Sharp™ surgical steel blades.
