ABOUT THE MAKER
Case Knives
Our roots extend back to 1889, when four enterprising brothers—William Russell (W.R.), Jean, John, and Andrew Case (a.k.a. “The Case Brothers”)—began selling handcrafted knives from the back of a wagon in upstate New York. John Russell (Russ) Case, the son of W.R., formed W.R. Case & Sons, as it is known today. Russ’s father acted as his son’s consultant, helping to stabilize the company's early finances while building a reputation as the most respected name in American cutlery. Today Case is owned by Zippo Manufacturing Company, makers of the world-famous Zippo® windproof lighter, another family-owned business based in Bradford.
Farrell, Dan
I've been a scrimshander since 2006 and started engraving and making knives in 2011. Using the stock removal method I mostly make art knives, linerlock folders, and a few slipjoints usually made from mosaic and carbon damascus for blades. The liners, spine, and bolsters are made from 410 and 416 with natural materials for handles. As far as subjects, portraits and nudes are what I'm best at and what I get the most request for. But I can also do other subject such as wildlife scene, nautical, etc. I also customize factory knives such a Case and Buck as well as take on custom projects on clients knives and other scrimshaw and engraving projects. 95% of my work is done on fossil mammoth ivory from Siberia and Alaska, also a few others on pre-ban elephant, pearl and micarta.
