New Knife Series Marks 10th Anniversary of Case XX Select

Bradford, Pennsylvania (October 22, 2008)- W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is celebrating the 10th Anniversary of its Case XX Select brand with a new limited edition lineup that includes nine exciting patterns with special features and handles made of the some of the most sought after materials.  The 2008 Case XX Select 10th Anniversary Family includes a Rogers Jigged Tested Red Bone TrapperLock (6154L SS),  a Rogers Jigged Mediterranean Blue Bone Mini CopperLock (61749L SS), an XX Prime Stag Sway Back Gent (TB51117 SS), a Rogers Jigged Bermuda Green Bone Small Stockman (6333 SS), a Smooth Gray Curly Zebra Wood Small Texas Toothpick (720096 SS),   a Smooth Genuine Mother-of-Pearl Barlow (82009 ½ SS), a Mammoth Ivory Baby Butterbean (I2132 SS), a Genuine Snakewood Gunboat Canoe (7394 SS), and a Red Stag Cigar Whittler (R5391WH SS).  Each is outfitted with Case Tru-Sharp™ surgical steel blades bearing a series signature tang stamp and a special “XX” shield on each handle.  Case’s 2008 Case XX Select 10th Anniversary knives will be available only at designated Case Select Dealers beginning October, 2008.

All knives in the 10th Anniversary Case XX Select series feature common or cut swedged stainless steel blades that are saber-concave or flat, taper ground.  Blades sport French or common nail marks, some with embellished or engraved artwork.  The knives’ bolsters, liners, rivets, and shields are made of nickel silver.  The shape of the Case Select “XX” shield fitted into each of this year’s knife handles resembles that used on the introductory Case XX Select family back in 1998.  Case has limited production of each of the Case XX Select patterns to just 500 pieces.  

 “Case XX Select knives are the embodiment of everything for which Case stands,” says John Sullivan, Director of Marketing at Case.  “The extra effort…from the inspection of the knife parts to the careful assembly to the precision honing and, finally, the extra hand finishing.  They demonstrate our commitment to hand-crafting and a never ending quest to make knives of the highest quality possible from within our factory in Bradford, PA.

The 2008 Case XX Select series is now shipping to Case Authorized Dealers nationwide.
