Examples of Case “whittler” patterns that were traditionally made with this construction include the 6308, the 6383, and the 6380. ” The last major general category of pocket knives as traditionally constructed by Case is a style of knife that is sometimes referred to as a “double-end” knife. This style is differentiated by the use of two full-length blades, hinged at opposite ends with each operating on its own backspring. Double-end knife patterns as made by Case would include two scales and two single-end backsprings, with no other interior liners.
THE LINE ON CASE LINER MATERIALS I n the construction of a traditional pocket knife, the “liner,” sometimes referred to as a “scale,” is the ﬂat strip of metal that forms the base for the handle, with the bolsters and the handle slabs afﬁxed to the liner using pins (on the vast majority of knives) or epoxy (the handles on very few knives). ” Some knives are made without liners, in particular metal-handled knives where the metal handle slab also serves as the liner. Traditionally, Case used three liner materials in the manufacture of pocket knives: iron, brass, and nickel silver.
