Have three Camillus so far (and one very special one on its way). Two short-line knives - the pruner (my eldest :wink:) & Jack knife (1946-1950) and the electrician's knife with tang stamp "Camillus" over "New York" over U.S.A. and no underline (1946-1956?).
All blades snap the Camillus way!

Here's my first two Camillus knives. They are in pretty good condition. I've just started collecting these, and I'm pretty excited to find a few more rare ones.

Tommy, Thanks, buddy! I wish he did. I'd let you guys in on it so you all would own one. You'd be first on my list and first shot at this one if I ever decide to sell or maybe trade. I was also considering something late at night after I posted it on the #72 thread - I wanted it go to someone who had a sizable collection; someone deserving of it - but was convinced by someone to "please keep it". ::shrug:: I had to honor that wish.

Wallace went to work for Camillus in the 1970s, worked there 30+ years and was THE custom shop for Camillus. He does great work. I have a couple of 72s he rehandled for me, one in gold lip pearl, the other in pre-ban elephant ivory and they are out standing. I guess you could say that Wallace is to Camillus what Herman Williams is to Schrade.
