Case Partners with Woodchuck for Newest Version of the Executive

Case has a new project underway with Woodchuck, a company that sells wood and wood-embellished products, albeit with a environmentally-conscious twist. A special run of Case’s Executive model come in a variety of wooden scales from Woodchuck, with each sale causing a tree to be planted in an area in need.

The Executive itself, like most members of the Case lineup, is a longstanding member of that lineup. It comes in two sizes, but the one chosen for the Woodchuck partnership is the standard one, with a 2.2-inch drop point blade. The steel is Tru-Sharp, which Case’s proprietary name for their particular 420HC steel. Tru-Sharp is an unquestionably outdated stainless, but one that still holds its own on small, day-to-day companion-style knives. Although the Executive is a locking knife, it still opens with two hands and a nail mark, like most Case knives (although Case did dip their toes into the modern folder scene again this year, with the Marilla and Kinzua flippers).

A base Executive has plain brushed stainless steel scales – a fact which makes it a popular choice for engravings. The new Woodchuck Executive models, however, have large wooden inlays on both the front and back scales – inlays that cover nearly the entire handle surface, leaving just a thin rim of steel around the edge for a letterboxing effect. The off-side scales are simple, unadorned wood, but the front ones come with a variety of different patterns: triangle, line, giraffe, camo, or stars and stripes.

There are five different scale patterns available

Customized wooden gifts are the core Woodchuck product, so these new collaboration models fall right in line with that – and, as mentioned above, the partnership means that for every Woodchuck Executive sold, they will plant a tree. Woodchuck has planting sites all over the world, but Case has said that the trees that come from this partnership will be planted in Woodchuck’s U.S. locations.

The Woodchuck Executive’s are available now through Case’s website.
