The Camillus pen knife has a floppy main blade. If I squeeze it it has a lot less movement.
I see no way to fix it. Maybe somebody can?
Hey JPD, that NK advertising knife stands for Northup King a seed corn outfit probably made by Imperial?. Looks like a good bunch of "fixer uppers".Just Plain Dave wrote:Went to the flea market in Cleveland that has been pretty good to me.
Found from top to bottom.
Case XX small stockman with a tipped Wharncliffe
Kabar small stockman with a tipped main
unknown pen (until I get to my loupe)
Northrup Kung jack only says USA on the tang
Camillus equal end stockman with a badly tipped pen or spey blade
All Carbon steel except the Jack which I'm sure is SS.
Gave $43 for all 5.
Most of the nail Nick is gone on the Camillus so I don't know that I can fix it. The Case will fix ok and the Kabar will have a short but usable main.
But to me the Case is the crown jewel of the find.
