These two knives came into my hands recently and I thought they were so similar that a set of comparison pictures might interest Camillus fans. I think the Camillus is the newer of the two. They are almost twins in many ways. The Kutmaster does have a simple swedge on its clip blade and there is a slight difference in the color and jigging of the scales. How about helping me spot other differences? (In the picture of the springs, the Cam is on the right. In the other pictures the Cam is on the bottom.)

The Camillus appears to have a larger spring pin, but it could be just the way it's spun.
The Kutmaster appears to have larger cover pins.
The springs on the Camillus seem to be deeper, especially on the clip.
I think you have a deeper sheepsfoot on the Kutmaster.
A couple of nice looking slippies.

mtds, it's interesting that you point out these similarities. I saw the same thing in the big hawksbills that both companies made (in Utica's case, still make) and postulated that Utica may have bought up some Camillus tooling at the bankruptcy sale. Here's the old thread:

viewtopic.php?f=4&t=18478&p=148154&hilit=utica#p148154

Whatever the circumstances, they both made some great knives, and Utica still does. Nothing will take out the sting of losing Camillus, but it's good to know that there is still a Great American Work Knife company.
