Wrap it all up with the new Case Star Spangled Tribal Lock in a patriotic-themed “natural bone” handle, and a Tru-Sharp surgical steel spear blade embellished with the iconic “USA.” The Star-Spangled Tribal Lock is the latest in the Case/Bose Tribal Lock family of knives designed by world-renowned knifemaker Tony Bose and is made in Bradford, Pennsylvania.

With a manufacturer’s suggested retail price of $148.70, the one-blade folder weighs 3.3 ounces and is 4 1/8 inches closed—a good, solid weight and size for pocket carry. Oh, and in case any of you are wondering, Case’s Tru-Sharp surgical steel is the company’s version of 420HC stainless.
