Here is one I have, the C-3.
The cartridge is 30-06 Springfield.
The second blade is a gutting blade, used to cut up the hide of an animal without puncturing the organs, much like a gut hook is used.

I am not where this originated, though I expect someone here knows, but I first saw it on Puma knives back in the 1980s.

Oh, I forgot to show that the C-3 is also a double lockback.

I think this is the last of the Camillus Cartridge Series I have.
This is by far my favorite of all that I have seen of that series.
It is the .22 Long Rifle muskrat, the Rimfire Classic.

I guess it is my favorite in part because I must have sent about half a million .22 rounds down range when I was growing up.
I am also found of the muskrat pattern, so this knife is a win-win for me! :mrgreen:

Dale and Gino, great looking knives. What a nice collection, Gino.
Dale, I also shot a ton of 22 as a kid. I loved every minute of it.

There is a 1993 Camillus .22 Long Rifle muskrat, the Rimfire Classic.
It was a trapper pattern. The price seems about right to me. ::shrug::

Just thought someone might be interested.
