Case and Tony Bose Deliver Winner at Blade Show

“It’s a really old pattern that’s very rare to find anywhere today,” says Bose. He went on to explain that the Arkansas Hunter collaborative was based on a unique Saddlehorn design used almost exclusively by the Empire Knife Company, a Connecticut-based manufacturer which began in the mid-19th century.

Bose acknowledged his Case cohorts, saying they “did an excellent job of recreating the pattern. The profile’s just exactly what my own knife would look like, and it fits just as good, too.”

Bone-handled versions of the Case/Bose Arkansas Hunter will begin shipping in October. All are packaged in a half-moon shaped suede leather pouch.

This is the tenth such Case/Tony Bose collaborative in the series.
