Subject: Re: case knife
My mother also taught us this word for a knife used in a table setting
(not a steak knife). I grew up here in east-central Alabama and am not
aware of having a significant number of German immigrants in this area.

Does anyone know "case knife"? My mom taught us this term as kids. Usually
it was a knife not used for serious cutting, such as for butter, cheese,
etc. I thought later on that it had to do with the German word for "cheese",
since she is from an area of SC (central western) that had lots of
German immigration. Any ideas?
