Made right here in the USA, this pocket knife will slide effortlessly down into your pocket where it’s barely noticeable, until the moment you need it when you slide it out of your pocket, smoothly slide the mirror polished 2 3/4″ clip point blade into position, and slice through the task at hand with style and ease. Before you know it, with a bit of controlled pressure on the lock back locking mechanism, the blade slides back into the handle and back down into your pocket leaving observers impressed.

That’s the Mini CopperLock. A Gentleman’s knife.

Protruding from the blue bone handle on the Case Mini CopperLock is a 2 3/4 inch clip point blade. This blade has been mirror polished to bring out the absolute best in the Tru-Sharp surgical steel. The blade comes very sharp right out of the box and if you hone in the blade even more, you’ll have a razor sharp knife that will get the job done with ease at your disposal. The steel is hard enough to hold an edge pretty well yet just soft enough to sharpen it easily. You won’t have to sharpen your CopperLock all the time but we recommend keeping it regularly honed.

The handle is one of the things that makes this classy pocket knife so special. This particular model has a genuine jigged blue bone handle that’s held together by nickel silver bolsters. Housed inside of the bone handle is the lockback locking mechanism that keeps the blade from closing during use. The blade folds down into the handle and stays there tightly. The bone handle on the Case Mini CopperLock also comes in a variety of colors, so even if blue’s not your color, there’s more choices.

So What’s the Verdict on the Case Mini CopperLock?

If you are looking for a gentleman’s pocket knife, this American beauty is just what you need. I recently read a review from one of our great servicemen, and he said that he carries one every day on active duty, and it’s built with quality and is the most beautiful knife he owns. Although his fellow servicemen carry all sorts of fancy tactical blades, he said often they still find themselves coming to him asking to borrow his CopperLock pocket knife.

The Case Mini CopperLock is a perfect example of form and function within a pocket knife. It’s classy, reliable, and a true classic. It deserves a place in every knife collector’s collection.
