Case has many styles of traditional bone-handled knives. In 2017, Case really breaks the mold by bringing us the burnt indigo bone style. Case says, “With an inky indigo shine, the intricate detail of this corn cob handle adds depth, while neutral tones beautifully bleed and blend together.” And I couldn’t agree more.

The new burnt indigo style is offered in six patterns, all of which come with Tru-Sharp surgical steel blades. The blades hold an impressive edge and wear a classy polished finish.

The burnt indigo bone handles display beautiful shades of blues and brown. The bone is Corncob jigged and surrounded by two nickel silver bolsters. Case chose to return the 1915-25 style arrowhead shields for this style. The contemporary looks paired with antique touches make the burnt indigo bone series quite the collectors piece.
