19th edition is here

Nov 04, 2019

The 2019 edition of the Co-op commemorative 4-H/FFA knife is available at your local Co-op. This is the 19th year for the popular program, which has raised nearly $500,000 for these worthy youth organizations since its inception in 2001.

This year’s knife is a classic Barlow pattern with amber bone handles. This vintage-era Jack knife design dates back to the early 1900’s and is characterized by a single oversized pocket end bolster. Case is offering Barlow knives in limited release during 2019, after which the pattern will be returned to the Case vault for another 10 years.

It features a custom Co-op shield with the FFA and 4-H logos engraved on the bolster; the Case and Co-op logos are printed on one blade, and the 4-H and FFA logos, as well as the year, are on the other blade. The knife is packaged in a one-of-a-kind, full-color box designed by Tennessee Farmers Cooperative. Sponsored by TFC in cooperation with W.R. Case and Sons Cutlery Co. of Bradford, Pa., the 2019 commemorative 4-H/FFA knife retails for $59.99.

For each knife sold, Co-op will donate $10 to be split evenly between the 4-H and FFA foundations in Tennessee.
“We’re proud of the success of this program,” says Chance Martin, TFC Home, Lawn, Specialty product manager. “The funds it raises are going to a worthy cause. And we’re pleased that so many folks continue to collect the knives and support our knife program.”

An exclusive walnut showcase (#1082988) is offered yearly. The case is spacious enough to feature all the 4-H/FFA knives to date in a single collection.
