For more than a century, W.R. Case & Sons Cutlery has been handcrafting premium knives exclusively in the United States. Case's distinction underscores its well-earned place as a genuine piece of Americana and the country's most popular collectible brand.

Slimlock Series:

W.R. Case and Sons Cutlery Company has released an outstanding pocket knife design; a first-rate "gentleman's companion" that Case calls the SlimLock. These exceptionally-crafted liner locking designs make up the John Russell Case Summit Collection, each featuring top-quality handle materials and a palate of high-end features including a unique drop-point blade design. The blade, made from BG-42 steel, is the first of its kind to be used in any Case production. 

The SlimLock is available in a variety of fine handle materials like Abalone and Smooth Mother-of-Pearl, Amboyna and Smooth Chestnut hardwoods, a Rogers Jigged Dark Red or Ocean Blue Bone and Case's own 6.5 BoneStag.

The Drop-Point blade is flat-taper ground and made from domestic BG-42 steel; a bearing-grade composition with added carbon and vanadium to give improved strength and increased edge retention. Case has integrated a precision-locking pivot screw to an enhanced bolster design that adds stability and life to the SlimLock. A thumb stud provides safe and convenient one-handed opening. 

Case credits John Russell ("Russ") Case with providing the inspiration for the SlimLock. The son of the company’s namesake, William Russell ("W.R") Case, Russ was known for adopting the latest heat treatment techniques and incorporating new and exotic handle materials into his knife designs during the early twentieth century. 

"Russ' legacy teaches us what can be achieved by selecting the highest-quality component materials and then blending our artisans' talents with state-of-the-art engineering and production methods," says John Sullivan, Case's Director of Marketing.

Designed with a vision that would make our founder proud, we consider the SlimLock® to be one of the most impressive of all the Case offerings. American-made alloy steel. Contemporary styling. Precisioncrafted. Smooth action. And seven handle material choices, ranging from genuine bone to eye-popping abalone. The SlimLock® collection–knives crafted by our hands to rest comfortably in yours.

Each Case SlimLock ships with a genuine leather carrying sheath, all in a custom storage pack.
