W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is an American manufacturer of premium, hand-crafted knives that are heirloom-worthy and passed down for generations. Based in Bradford, Pennsylvania, Case’s offerings cover a wide range of product categories, from traditional folding pocket knives and fixed blade sporting knives to limited production commemoratives and collectables.


The company got its start in 1889 when the four Case brothers began fashioning knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York. John Russell, the son of one of the brothers, W.R., launched W.R. Case & Sons around the turn of the 20th century. W.R. took on the role of consultant, helping his son to stabilize the company’s early finances all the time building a reputation as a dependable supplier of high-quality cutlery.


Today Case is owned by Zippo Manufacturing Company, makers of the world famous Zippo® windproof lighter, another family-owned business based in Bradford, Pennsylvania. W. R. Case & Sons Cutlery Co. has left its mark on the American knife industry, winning awards and favorable press for its original knife concepts and manufacturing methods from major print publications and international trade organizations and events.
