Case Knives: Cheetah Giraffe Bone
No one can discount the respect that Case Knives has earned over the years in regard to traditional knives, that also prove their worth in the field. One of their newest designs is continuing to hold the torch for the Bradford, Pennsylvania knifemaker, as they've once again designed a sleek and timeless pocketknife that anyone of any age can appreciate.
With a closed length of about 4.5 inches, the single-bladed Cheetah fits nicely into any pocket and is razor sharp out of the box, as all Case knives typically are. The polished stainless steel blade and bolsters blend flawlessly with the glossy giraffe bone scales, held into place by brass pins. When the knife is open, you'll notice a handsome and functional swing guard that slides into place during the blade deployment. Using the Cheetah as an EDC was a pleasure—cutting rope, whittling, and even aiding in some leatherwork when I couldn't locate a razor blade. Case has built the perfect blend of class, and usability with the Cheetah, which includes a velvet case that will aid in preserving it for generations to come.
