W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery Company is an American manufacturer of premium, hand-crafted knives that are passed down for generations. Based in Bradford, Pennsylvania, the company’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’s rich history began in 1889 when four brothers – William Russell (W.R.), Jean, John, and Andrew Case began fashioning knives and selling them along a wagon trail in upstate New York.
Today the company is owned by Zippo Manufacturing Company, makers of the world famous Zippo windproof lighter, another family-owned business based in Bradford. The company’s original knife concepts and manufacturing methods have been recognized with awards and features from major print publications, international trade organizations and events, broadcast television shows and major motion pictures.
The brand’s popularity is underscored by the knives it manufactures under licensing agreements with popular American icons like Harley-Davidson, Ford Motor Company, United States Marine Corps, United States Army, United States Navy, John Deere, Boy Scouts of America, Ducks Unlimited, John Wayne (Wayne Enterprises) and National Wild Turkey Federation.
