I just picked up this Case folding knife with some other items at a recent sale. I am suspect as to the authenticity of this one since I don't recognize the dot pattern on the blade. Can anyone give some insight on this? Thanks.

I was suspicious of the letter S but a quick check says that's legitimate . The brass appears distressed but it looks like the blade is pristine.??

I found one that looks like yours, but the S is different and there are no dots.

The blade is pretty good. The dots are a dating system for Case, but I have not been able to find any with that pattern of 3 dots on the left and 4 on the right.

I found out that the "XX" on the tang of your knife stands for "eXX-changer" which refers to the fact that the blades are exchangeable. There are 3 different blades:  yours, a sawtooth, and a saw.  It also answers Fred's observation about the distressed look of the case vs the pristine look of the blade. Obviously yours is not a brand-new knife.

To verify or obtain more info Case Knife Co. is in business, located in Pennsylvania. They have a website.

Thank Tom. I contacted the Case Co. Waiting for a reply.
