Case Knives has released quite a few gems in the last few years, and one of our recent favorites is the uncluttered 2009 SlimLock, an elegant twist on an old workhorse.

These knives feature a single 3-1/2″ drop point blade with a thumbstud opener.  You might remember Case’s stunning Damascus-bladed model from a few years ago;  Damascus has never really been my style, so I’m glad they’ve expanded the line.

My favorite handle material has to be the Orange Curly Zebra Wood — it goes well with the polished nickel bolsters. The beautiful sweep of the bolster’s design also makes this knife look a hell of a lot more refined than something you might see at the local flea market.

On the downside, they’re just a touch expensive — street pricing is around $180 to $250 depending on handle material.

    I’m partial to wood handles too, and Case makes good stuff, but $180-$250? Outta my tax bracket.

  2. Wow, at $250, that’s approaching the price of a custom knife, or at least a limited run production knife like a Strider folder.

    I don’t understand why a SlimLock, or most Case knives are so expensive. In the $50 range there are alot of knives (Spyderco Native 2 S30V steel) with way better bade steel and like Case made in the USA. Kershaw makes some great damascus knives all under or around $100, compared to the $350+ for a damascus SlimLock.

    Right. Benchmade makes a lot of really nice knives for WAY less than $250.
