    I got this at a gun show twenty years ago (or so?) Case denies making such a knife. Is it authentic? Is it worth saving? Is it junk?

    It's junk just for what it represents. Just my opinion

    This unit was altered after Case sold it.

    Sort of like a bubba-ed gun.

    That is ridiculous. I probably paid twenty bucks or so. I'm cheap.
    By the way, this one is for sale for only $499 :p
    That last part may not be true.

    The "Clan" was a hugh political movement prior to WWII. Most of the American male population were or had been members. In such states as Indiana the "Clan" controlled the state government from the governor down to local mayors. There were many items sold to this large market.

    I've seen knives like that for years now. Case does deny it but it looks much liek many other limited run knives they have sold. So it's a toss up I guess. I do know as a Case collector that those knives while offensive are pretty high dollar collector knives. That leads me to believe that they did make it. It's just not in any books I've seen.

    Why did you buy it? Not trying to be rude. Just wondering.

    Why do people buy Nazi Mausers, Mosin Nagants of the Stalin years or Japanese swords? Ignoring remnants of the past neither promotes or changes history. Caution! Your liberal leaning is showing.:(

    It was a cheap novelty (supposedly) made by a popular knife company. I thought it might be collectible. That was pre-Internet. Now I doubt it's authenticity.

    Send an email to the big woman cook in the news right now, she might want it to serve her hams that were dumped off the market.

    The most common explanation for the Case KKK knives are as stated: that they started out plain Case knives, and were altered by other companies and sold as collectibles. Here's a post by the W.R. Case Company historian regarding such knives:

    However, if Case ever HAD made such a knife, I can see why they would be reluctant to admit it.

    I'll jump at Case collectibles, but I'll let that one pass. Even if Case did produce it, I'm not going to hold it against them anymore than I hold VW's sins against them. I still drive my Jetta.

    I'd be more likely to believe that, if it said KKK somewhere

    on the case. The only thing with KKK markings is the knife.

    It probably has a high value to someone.

    Put it on Gunbroker and start it at $20. Ya might be able to buy a new gun.

    It might sell quicker if I say I got it from Paula Deen.

    I got a better idea why not say you got it at an estate sale of stuff owned by the late Senator Robert Byrd, after all he was a true racist and Klansman!
