The doctor is in!

New edition in Co-op’s commemorative 4-H FFA knife collection available this fall
By Allison Parker 10/1/2018

Just for 2018, the doctor is in! The 18th edition of Co-op’s highly popular 4-H/FFA commemorative Case knife, in the “The Doctor’s Knife” pattern, will soon be available to order. 

Sponsored by Tennessee Farmers Cooperative in cooperation with the iconic W.R. Case and Sons Cutlery Co. of Bradford, Pa., this year’s knife is a perfect complement to those previously issued in the Co-op program. Since 2001, this program has raised more than $380,000 to help equally fund the state’s 4-H and FFA foundations and their respective youth programs.

“We are proud to partner with organizations that support youth involved in agriculture because we realize that they are not only the future of our Co-op system, but also the future of the entire industry,” says Chance Martin, TFC Home, Lawn, Specialty (HLS) Department product manager who handles the Case line for the Co-op system. “We are proud to celebrate the 18th year for this program, and we plan to continue our support of such a worthy cause.”

Retailing for $59.99, this collector’s item features a Tru-Sharp Surgical Stainless Steel spear blade and a whiskey bone handle. The knife has FFA and 4-H logos deeply engraved on the nickel silver bolsters, the Case and Co-op logos are printed on one blade, and the FFA and 4-H logos, as well as the year, are on the other blade. The annual knife is packaged in a one-of-a-kind, full-color box designed by TFC.

The Doctor’s Knife is one of the earliest knife patterns made by Case around the turn of the 20th century. It was designed specifically for aiding the doctors crushing pills into a powder form using the uniquely shaped, flat, squared bolster to do so.

Co-op also offers an exclusive, custom walnut showcase (#1082988), in which all of the 4-H/FFA knives to date can be handsomely displayed as a single collection. Retailing for $99.99, the case features a glass front with a 4-H, FFA, Co-op, and Case logo printed in each corner.

“We feel confident that as in past years, the knife will sell out,” says Martin. “It’s a proven product.”
