ITEM DESCRIPTION
Vintage Case XX Hatchet & Knife Combination Set, Bone Handles, Leather Sheath, Used Circa 1940's.  This is a beautiful Case XX hatchet and knife combination set with the interchangeable stag handle that has the 3" long rule that folds out of the handle and makes an 8" long measuring device for measuring the legal size of a trout.  On the back side of the fold out rule is Pat. Oct. 22, 1935.  The hatchet has Case XX marked on it and the knife has Case marked on the left tang (which is concealed when the knife is mounted into the handle).  When the fold out rule is secured into the grip it forms the locking mechanism to secure the knife blade or hatchet into the handle.  The grips are bone that has been jigged to resemble stag, and are held in place with 5 brass pins.  There is a chip out of the right grip that is about 1/2" long X 1/8" wide and there is a fine hairline crack that starts at the end of the chip and runs about an inch up the grip.  Nickel silver bolsters, with some light scratches and dings from use.  both the knife blade and the hatchet have been sharpened, and both are still bright.  The basket weave tooled leather sheath is still very supple and has some light scratches and scuffs, and there is a small split about 1/2" long from the knife blade at the top where the blade fits into the sheath.  All stitching and rivets still sound and solid.  The snap on the retaining strap is marked Case Tested XX, and the front of the sheath is stamped Pat. Feb. 5, 1935.  The knife is 9" overall length with a 4-3/4" blade.  the hatchet is 11" overall length, and the hatchet head is 5" long X 3" wide.  This is a beautiful set to put into a Case combination hatchet and knife collection, and will enhance anyone's knife or hatchet collection.  Don't let it get away as you will be hard pressed to find a niceer one.  Condition Very Good Plus.
