Double-Dyed Synthetic series, this rugged synthetic handle is carefully jigged and double-dyed to achieve a classic look with modern characteristics. These knives feature strong shoulder and satin finish, brushed finish Lazy Duck bolster, special double-dyed synthetic handles and nickel silver Carhartt shield. Case artisians still hand-craft each knife the way they have for 124 years. They put a lot of time and effort into making sure the knives they produce today reflect on their history in positive way - the finest steel blades, nickel silver bolsters, covers that are pinned, not glued like lesser grade knives, and a limited lifetime warranty. All this and the pride of being made exclusively in the USA stands behind each knife.
