Case Classics was a program initiated by Jim Parker that resulted in thousands of Case classic patterns being delivered to a hungry collectible market. These Case Classics had a lukewarm welcome to the hobby, but once collectors started seeing the quality of the knives in the Case Classics program - they couldn't stay away. Say what you want about the man or the program itself, but you cannot knock the Case Classics knives themselves. The Case Classics program spanned the 1990's, but the market demand would not hit until the late 1990's and exploded into the 2000's. It is now to the point that today we simply can't find Case Classics, and what we do find come dear.
