The Case Peanut is a traditional pocket knife with the classic Peanut shape. This pattern derives its name from the shape of the handle: with a tiny bit of imagination it resembles a peanut shell. It is a relatively small knife with two blades: a clippoint main blade and a pen-shaped secondary blade. Both blades have a slightly different tip. As a result you use them for different tasks, or you can exchange the blade when one of the two is blunt. They are, when opened, firmly kept in place by a slipjoint.
Case CV Carbon steel
The blade is made from Case Chrome Vanadium steel, also called CV steel. A type of steel that is praised for the fact that it can easily be sharpened. With only a minimal amount of effort you can end up with a razor-sharp knife. You do, however, have to look out for rust. Long-term exposure to moisture, salt or acids will discolour the blade or even cause rust. Enthusiasts will appreciate that a patina will form on the blade over time. This means that the steel will become matte, and grey. As such the knife will get a character of its own and become unique.
Yellow Synthetic handle
The handle on this pocket knife is made from yellow synthetic material. The yellow colour ensures that the knife definitely stands out, in case you ever lose it. The synthetic material feels great in hand and even feels comfortable in very low temperatures.
Case Knives: traditional pocket knives
Case has been making pocket knives since 1889. Each knife is assembled and finished by hand which is very 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.
