Prepare for a long and frustrating search. These don't pop up very often. I was lucky and Tommy sent one to me. Thank you Tommy (carrmillus) if it hadn't been for you I wouldn't have one. Tommy is responsible for several hard to find 72s in my collection and I will be forever grateful.
This is what long time Camillus employee, Tom Williams (now deceased) had to say about the knife.
Nice hearing from you. I remember seeing these knives in the factory around the early 2000's, maybe 2002-2003. They may have been a special knife that Camillus made for Smoky Mountain Knife Works. We made many knives for SMKW using available parts. For several years Camillus owned 50% of Smoky Mountain Knife Works and knives made for them were very reasonably priced since Camillus would share the profits when the knives were sold.
You will not find this knife or any other knife made for Smoky Mountain Knife Works in any of the Camillus catalogs. They may have been in SMKW's catalogs.
I hope this information is helpful.
Oh yeah, and by the way...................
