Hope someone comes along who can shed more light on the Case 337Q for you.  A few years ago I posted some details for the Cat 225Q knife.  But the Case is of different construction.

Arrow- I may be going out on a limb here, but I believe the pommel is held on by one or two pins. Since it's already in rough condition, I'd probe a little with a nail punch just to see if you could expose them.  Just a guess!  SKIP

Your probably right about the pin or pins, was hoping to get a definitive answer before I get too crazy with it.
I don't want to tear it up, need it to restore another one that is in a lot better condition and is missing the pommel.
I'll try cleaning it up and see if I can tell what's holding it on.

I believe it is a single large crosspin, which was machined smooth when the knife was finished.

Got it off !

After sanding of all the surface rust it was pretty easy to see the pin location. What threw me was is it only showed on one side.

Used a 5/32 bit and drilled just past the tang. A little penetrating oil and a few love taps later, success.

Added a few more pics just in case anyone is curious what's holding a Case 337 Q pommel on.

Congrats. I can't quite figure out where you drilled. Into the pin itself or opposite where the pin went into the pommel?

I drilled the pin out, there was no way to line the bit up from the other side.

Blind pin like KABAR uses on their current fighting/utility knife.
