W.R. Case and Sons Cutlery Company, an American manufacturer of premium knives, received an Editor's Choice Award from Popular Mechanics magazine on Tuesday, May 8 at the National Hardware Show in Orlando, Florida. The Case SlimLock® folder with Damascus blade was one of only thirteen products to be chosen from among thousands of products this year, and the only pocket knife to have won an award. The Editor's Choice Awards highlight products which demonstrate outstanding achievement in innovation, invention, design and engineering.

John Sullivan, Case's Director of Marketing, states, “The SlimLock represents the finest, most modern pocket folder ever offered by Case. We're honored to receive such a prestigious award.”

Popular Mechanics recognized the Case SlimLock for its unique blend of beauty, quality construction, and useful function, calling it “the quintessential example of the knife maker's art.” They add, “It's not just exotically beautiful, it's razor sharp and resharpens easily.”

Case offers the SlimLock with several handle material options. Traditional bone-handled models are offered in 6.5 BoneStagâ„¢, Mediterranean Blue, Smooth Chestnut and Classic Green. Other exotic handle choices include Ebony wood (pictured), Snakewood, Smooth Abalone, and presentation grade Mother-of-Pearl.

The SlimLock's standard features include a convenient one-hand opening thumb stud and an adjustable pivot screw to control blade action. A steel liner locks the blade open for added security. A genuine leather carrying sheath is included with the unique product package which pays tribute to John Russell Case, the company's founder.

The SlimLock is currently offered with a drop point blade made from BG-42 steel (a high performance stainless alloy). Limited quantities are available with ladder-patterned Damascus steel blades. The Damascus steel is hand-forged with a 1075 carbon steel and 201 nickel alloy.

This is the first time the Damascus-bladed SlimLock had appeared at the National Hardware Show.
