Welcome Home...THANK YOU FOR BEING A PART OF OUR COMMUNITY

This is for the FYI file.

The Case XX Vault program took effect January 1, 2008.



Four popular patterns and all related tool works were locked away inside the “Case XX Vault” for a period of at least three years before being reintroduced to the public.

The reasons to institute this program are twofold. First, there are the manufacturing concerns involved in operating a factory with 140 different knife patterns. Meeting the incredible customer demand for hand-crafted Case knives is a real challenge; one that is magnified each year as Case introduces new knife patterns.

Second, and more importantly, this program will be a tremendous benefit for Case Collectors. The time a pattern is on hiatus will give the Case Collector time to find those rare knives missing from their collection. At the same time, the knives already in their collection are likely to become even more valuable.

The following four knife patterns will be retired to the vault on July 1, 2010:

Seahorse Whittler (55) (You all write a note of condolence to Jim Prather and JJ... But let them know the plan is for the Seahorsey's to come home in a few and all will be right in the universe again)
Large Trapper (51)
Razor (005)
Hunter (Finn)

The following four knife patterns were retired to the vault on January 1, 2010:

Alamo Bowie (Alamo Bowie Patttern)
Pen ('01 Pattern)
Dog Leg Trapper ('40 Pattern)
Swell Center Jack ('25 1/2 Pattern)

Thanks for the updates, this helps a lot in understanding why you don't see some patterns. I didn't know they did this. Much appreciated.
