In the early years of Case, many of the sought-after variations in handle materials happened due to random manufacturing changes or changes in the suppliers of materials. In later years, as Case catered to the collector market, many innovative handle material variations were introduced by design to provide variety for collectors and knife users. Beginning in the late 1980s and in particular after the mid-1990s, the variety of handle materials used has blossomed. During these years, Case changed its manufacturing processes to include more accurate dyeing of bone colors and the methodologies necessary to produce much shorter product runs so that more handle varieties can be included.
