I think it’s clear by now that I’m not a fan of Case’s adoption of the Disney-style vault system for stock rotation. Perhaps it’s just sensitivity from Disney shoving their warehouse clearing program up our collective posteriors, and us quite literally buying it. “Hurry, before it goes back into the vault!” is not something I like hearing from one of my favorite blade builders. But like it or not, Case’s “vault” is opened and has drawn forth the Copperlock and Sowbelly, among others, to spread joy this Christmas.
I do wish they would have said something more like, “Hey, we know you buy knives for Dad at Christmas and he likes the classic stuff, so here ya go.” But maybe “Opening the Vault” just sounds more elegant.
The dealers have a bunch of Case-branded stag, mother of pearl, and bone in ready supply, and we’re guessing they will for a month or two until the bumped production run is depleted. So grab all the Cheetah, Copperlock, Sowbelly, Doctors, and Tuxedo pattern blades you like while supplies last, because sooner or later “The Vault” will snap shut again.
