    Case Texas Jack review and questions!


    ADVERTISEMENT
    I started off with a peanut a while back and I love the Freakin thing! But I like a bigger knife with a smaller knife.
    I used to carry a endura and delica. There great knives but they don't "grow old" with you, or have the same feel as a good slippe.
    So Ive switched to slippies I started with the mighty 'nut. I love everything about the 'nut! So a small texas jack is
    sort of similar, by the blade layout, and the cv steel, and thats about where it ends.
    The texas jack has a larger clip point main blade, and a smaller modded pen blade. I love the two blades they are awesome...
    well once you sharpen them, mine basically came serrated. The amber bone is beautiful! I cant wait for it to get old!
    It does have the hideous shield the chestnut cv 'nut has except, it's atleast legible on the jack so I can live with it.
    The blade pulls are a medium, and have good "walk n talk". They are not perfect, but good enough when it comes to
    centering they are both a little off not bad with no rubbing. Overall the ff is 7/10 would have gave it a 8/10 if it came with
    better grinds.
    Now on to the problems.. if these blades sink into the handle with time (at all) the knife will become unusable.
    The nail nics are very close to the handle, but I have no problem with it. Second I wish the main blade was a tad bit wider,
    but that just my preferences. Also what texas jack is what!? I have a (62032) on one site Its a small jack (3.5 closed,2.4oz)
    another site its a case texas jack (62032) 3n5/8ths so is there a larger jack? If so do you know the numbers? But all in all a great knife
    very worth the money just a bit confusing! The 'nut and jack will be buds until my knife addiction moves onto something new!

    Great looking Texas Jack. I don't have an answer to your question but I am wondering about it myself regarding the nail nick sinking too low if you ever need to file the kick. Older Texas Jacks have a cutout for the nick, but 1980's and later did away with this practical feature.

    The Case (Lg) Texas Jack is the 6292 and it is discontinued. It measures right at 4". Mine is a 1998 I think.

    The only reason the nail nicks would sink into the knife would be if you filed down the "kick" on the blade tang. Don't do that and you should be fine.

    The Case '032 pattern is a specific handle shape - squared bolster serpentine. In the '2032 version, it's a 2-bladed jack knife. Case calls this a Small Texas Jack (in the Amber Bone handles) and a Medium Jack (in several other handles). The length is 3 5/8" closed. If you see it listed as 3.5" it's because people can type different stuff on their web sites when listing things for sale, even when it's wrong or inconsistent.

    The 3-bladed version is the '3032 which is called a Medium Stockman. Case has 6 different patterns that they call a Medium Stockman, ranging in sizes from 3 1/4" closed (the '44 pattern) up to 3 7/8" closed (the '47 pattern). I've seen the '47 pattern stockman listed as Medium Stockman, Large Stockman, and just Stockman.

    Back to the Small Texas Jack, that name comes from the days when there was a regular Texas Jack, the 6292 model that SAKGuy posted such a great picture of, that is 4" long. But since the full-sized Texas Jack has been discontinued, you'll see the 62032 often listed as just the "Texas Jack."

    I've also seen vendors calling the 22087 Medium Jack a "Texas Jack" as well.

    It turns out that there is no naming police for Case knives on the internet, and vendors can and do incorrectly list their products all of the time.

    You can't even trust the WRCase.com web site, since I have seen products listed there where the wrong part number is listed on a picture.

    I'm glad you like your knife. The Case '032 pattern is one of my favorites, in all of its incarnations. It's one of the few I have multiples of, in SS, CV, and both the 2 and 3 blade varieties.

    Here are my two Amber Bone CV Small Texas Jacks:

    Thanks again guys for the thread and info! It got me thinking and I had to go check that the medium sized CV Texas Jack
    I bought used last year was indeed a TJ!

    The Case website has the _2032 pattern (square bolsters) listed as 3 5/8" and the _2087 pattern (round bolsters, like the Peanut) listed as 3 3/8", while calling them both Medium Jacks, interchangeably, when shown with different cover options. The Small Texas Jack (_2032 - 3 5/8") is longer than the Medium Jack (_2087 - 3 3/8"). Case doesn't list a Medium Texas Jack. We're all confused, including Case.

    Well, I got up confused this morning....sure glad to see I can persevere throughout the day!

    So mine is a small Texas Jack! See, to me, a Case 6333 Stockman is small at 2 5/8"......

    Here are some of my Case jacks:



    Small Texas Jack at the top, Texas Jack at the bottom. The red one is a Medium Jack (same exact pattern as the Small Texas Jack), and on the right is just listed on the box as a "Jack" which is the 62087 pattern.

    One of my older and most carried knives. The only Case I own with centered blades. Nice patina and the bone has turned darker over time. Blades are scary sharp and easy to keep that way. A great knife. Everyone needs one of these.

    Great looking knives posted here! I like the modified pen blade on the 62032's - more stout than a regular pen blade. Almost like a cross between a pen blade and a sheepsfoot.

    To add to the confusion, the box for my 22087 is factory labeled "Texas Jack".

    P, this is a great little jackknife, bigger than a Peanut, but a little shorter than a 62032 - good snap and no wobble at all. The blades are stainless steel, finished with their "working knife" brushed look (same as my Sodbuster) - the main blade is a nice size for such a small package. The black synthetic handles are smooth, not sure if they are Delrin or some other synthetic. I am not currently at home, so I cannot measure it for you. OH

    As this is becoming a "Texas Jack" thread I thought I would post a few more I have collected; this 52032 SS stag is from a 1989 Centennial set, I've misplaced the box so I don't know how Case labeled it. John, those are some beautiful examples you have in your collection!

    I have a favorite Case 6292 from 1982 and a Colonial Old Cutler of about the same vintage that is a near exact copy of the Case. I am not sure if Colonial called their's a Texas Jack as I have never had a box for this knife - I use it as a working knife and it performs well for me. OH
