Help: Tang Grind Search
Approximately 97% of the knives currently in the data base have a straight ground tang. But in 1983, 1984 and 1985, the so called new grind or shoulderless
grinds were made. This field is for the collectors who want to specialize in new grind knives.
- Click the drop down marked New-Curved-Shoulderless and search. You will receive back 173 new grind knives from this 3 year period.
- Click the drop down marked New-Curved-Shoulderless and put 1985 in both blocks of the year range. As Case was busy getting out of the new grind business by
1985, you will receive back only 37 new grind knives from the last year of production, making this the rarest year for variations. The ability to identify
rarity is a side benefit of the flexibility that the advanced knife search page gives you.
