The Case Medium Stockman is a true classic in the pocket knife world. This pattern is almost as old as the entire category of Traditionals. This Case Stockman is a very pure incarnation of this classic model. It has been enhanced with three blades: a clippoint blade as main blade, a 5.0 cm sheepfoot blade and, the for the Stockman almost indispensable blade, the Spey-blade: a spearpoint with a type of blunt tip. Originally this type of blade was used to skin game.
The three blades are, when opened, kept in place by a slipjoint lock. Because Case has, in this case, used two lock-springs to keep three blades in place it is inevitable that the blades are very close together and even touch each other when closed. This is part of the design and also gives it its authentic charm.
This medium version closely resembles the normal Stockman. The only real difference is that the Medium Stockman has slightly less-higher blades. As such it is a little slimmer.
Case Tru-Sharp SS steel
The blade is made from Case Tru-Sharp SS, a stainless type of steel which closely resembles 420HC steel. Characterizing for this type of steel is that you can quickly sharpen it.
Pocket Worn Old Red Bone
The handle is made from Pocket Worn Old Red Bone which is, in fact, cow bone enhanced with an interesting texture after which it has been given a colour and a nice polish. This classic material radiates class and elegance. It is completely in line with the look and feel of Case. In this case a Corn Cob texture was chosen. This shape was inspired by the texture of a corn cob.
The addition ‘Pocket Worn’ means that a little more attention was paid to the finish. As such the knife looks worn in, as if years of wearing it in your pocket gave it a nice polish.
Case Knives: traditional pocket knives
Case has been making pocket knives since 1889. Each knife is assembled and finished by hand which is unique for an American brand. As such each Case knife is unique. Case knives are very collectable and are great companions to your standard EDC pocket knife. Great as a gift, for yourself and for someone else.
