Case Creates a Winner: Modern EDC Knives Made in Bradford
by Mark D. Zalesky
Perhaps you have read the news online, or have seen the ads inside our front cover about the new knives from W.R. Case & Sons. Call them what you will: EDC (Every Day Carry) folders, flippers, tactical knives, or as Case prefers, Modern EDC (MEDC) knives; these new knives from Case are the result of many years of planning, experimentation, and testing. That effort has resulted in Case receiving the “American Made Knife of the Year” (TM) honor at June’s Blade Show.
Even to knife enthusiasts, the significance of these new knives may not be immediately apparent. They’re not the first knives Case has made that open and close with one hand, so what makes these different? And what makes them so good that they’ve won this award over many companies who specialize in making knives of this type?
As we like to do here at Knife Magazine, let’s take a closer look.
