One of the most popular pocket knives among yesterday’s ranchers and farmers is also a favorite of professionals in today’s urban trades. Three useful blade styles in a convenient pocket folding knife handle nearly every emergency. All you need is a little imagination and a Case knife to pull you through.
The standard blades on the Case Stockman include a spey blade with a forward curve designed for animal surgery — though its original use was usually the castration of cattle, it serves many other purposes which favor slicing over piercing. The straight edge sheepsfoot blade, short and stout, had more social distinction since it was intended for cutting chewable sections from twisted tobacco plugs. The Stockman’s main blade, the clip knife, handles all sorts of general purpose work from carving and whittling to prying rocks from horse’s hooves.
While some people today do not have those exact uses in mind, the range of applications of the Case Stockman’s blade assortment is fairly universal. Many people caught in tricky situations have figured out solutions with less, but it always helps to be better prepared than the merely average person.
The handle of the modern medium Stockman, 3-7/8 inches long when folded, encloses a high carbon stainless steel main blade three inches long. Each of the three blades is manufactured from the same SS alloy chosen for its unusual strength, corrosion resistance, and ability to hold a sharp edge. Handle slabs are natural bone, harvested from range-fed Zebu cattle in Brazil — only the shin bones of this tough breed have the strength and density required by Case knives. The Stockman is collectible, practical, and built to last.
