looking for more information on Case XX Throwing knife

Feb 23, 2022
I hope that you gentlemen can help. My late husband had a CaseXX throwing knife that I want
to sell but I think I need more background information. The only markings are Case XX on one side of the blade.
I don't know what kind of steel it is if somebody asks me or when it was made. Can you help with some more info?

Many thanks in advance,

It looks like they made them for several years/decades. I don't know if Case ever identified the specific steel.

I just found this catalog page from 1949. It indicates that the ones made then were "chromium plated" steel. I believe the more recently made ones are "stainless steel". I'll keep looking around to see if I can find anything.

It looks like the 1954 catalog was exactly the same, except for higher prices. Same steel listed (chromium plated).

I believe that the ones from 1949 to sometime in the 1960s just had CASE XX, no model numbers. I know the ones made in the 1970s and later had model numbers on them. I known of model numbers 303, 304, 305, 306 and 308. There may or may not be a 307. If so, I have not encountered them.
