Case is celebrating the tenth anniversary of their XX Select brand by releasing a few limited-edition blades, with handles made of some of the most popular materials.  Each knife features a surgical steel blade with a series-signature tang stamp and a special “XX” shield on the handle.

The celebratory series includes a Red Bone TrapperLock, a Mediterranean Blue Bone Mini CopperLock, a XX Prime Stag Sway Back Gent, a Bermuda Green Bone Small Stockman, a Smooth Gray Curly Zebra Wood Small Texas Toothpick, a Smooth Genuine Mother-of-Pearl Barlow, a Mammoth Ivory Baby Butterbean, a Snakewood Gunboat Canoe, and a Red Stag Cigar Whittler — that’s nine knives, for those who’re counting.

Collectors will be aglow with excitement, as the production run of each blade is going to be 500 knives per style for a total of 4,500 blades.  Spread those out across the select dealers and you’re looking at one or two being sent to any particular area — so if you’re on the hunt, pre-order with your local dealer.  As with all the Case limited-edition knives, be prepared for a ten to twenty-percent price bump at the local shop because of the rarity.

    Case also has something else new this season for a little less coin. They released to Sears.com a set of 5 presidential commemorative knives for the first five presidents. Limited series of 500 of each knife. Here’s the description:

    Nice knives, but there’s one ‘X’ too many . . .

    I went to the sears/bob villa site but they only had 4 knives. For the first 4 presidents. Are you sure about the five? I would appreciate knowing for sure if there are 4 or 5.
    Thanks for the info.
