Help: Year Range
To find a knife in the database, the Blade Master suggests you
use a combination of the year and model number.
- Typing 1974_(blank)will find all the knives starting in 1974
- Typing 1974_1974 will find only knives made in 1974
- Typing (blank)_1974 will find all the knives before the year 1975
This becomes very powerful when combined with the model number:
Typing 1997_(blank) in the year range and then 6254 in
the model number will display all the bone handled trappers
(currently in the database)made after 1996.
Similarly 1989_1989 in the year range and 3254 in the model
number will display the yellow composition handled trappers made
only in the year 1989.

year of a Case knife.
Dating Case Knives
After 1970 every Case knife can be associated with an individual year.
Before 1970, knives are associated with an era. To find
a particular knife, the collector may frequently search for a
model number and the year, so the collector must be able to
identify which year or era the knife was made in order to search
quickly. Clicking the left column in the table will tell you
more about that era or year span.
