Case XX Knife Pattern
When the Hobo® (54HB) is closed, it resembles a regular Trapper. What makes this pattern unique is that once the knife is opened, the handle splits apart revealing a separate knife, spoon, and fork with bottle opener. These components can easily be put back together. Case produced two variations of the Hobo (‘51 and ‘52) from the early 1900’s-1940. These were made with two to four utensil implements using a can opener, soup spoon, three-prong fork, and knife blade. In 1983, Case reintroduced the Hobo (54) at 4 1/8 inches long closed.
