Born of wartime necessity and proven on the battlefields of World War II, the Case V-42 is the stuff of legend. First conceived in 1942, the knife's design is attributed to then Lieutenant Colonel Robert T. Frederick. In honor of the legacy of the First Special Service Force, Case is proud of the 'faithfully true' reproduction of the classic original, patterned after the company's own museum piece. The tang stamp on the re-created Case V-42 reads CASE on one side, V-42 USA on the other. Even the accompanying leather sheath is completed according to the original World War II-era requirements.
