Gear Review: Best Knives

Whether you’re out in the country or stuck behind a desk, no man should be without a handy blade. If you’ve got a fishing line to slice or an envelope to open, you can’t do any better than these select cuts from Case Knives.

W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company has been making knives since 1889. Since we don’t have a calculator nearby, we’ll just go ahead and say that’s a very long time.

Over the years, generation after generation of expert knife makers have handcrafted pocket knives, sport/hunting knives and collectables at Case’s Bradford, PA facility. If you’re in the market for a fine piece of steel, these are some of our favorites from the 100+ models you can browse here.
