From the description it sounds like one of mine...As you may know, Camco was a Camillus brand. It was their economy line, but most Camillus collectors, me included, like them a lot. They are well constructed and come in a lot of patterns. The main differences that I know of from the main Camillus line was slightly thinner blades and backsprings, and less expensive handle materials. Here's a shot of my latest rustbucket Camco, which some elbow grease will turn into a nice user.

I like them. They're good knives and not expensive or hard to find. I got these two in mint condition for less than $25. They're nice barlows.

A co-worker carries one just like those. He used to work in a deep mine 20yrs ago, and said they would give them out from the tool room, anytime you asked. He wishes he had gotten a few more....

Model 551 Bret. Nothing fancy but a good user with a strong back spring and snap. One for my son and one for me. ::tu::
