Wallace also made many of the best Camillus fixed blades, like the Jerry Fisk knives, knives that still sell in the $300 - $400 range.

Here is a # 47, 4 7/8" all metal lockback. Hardly ever see this one. Does it have much collector value ?
The Buck 111 looks similar to this Camillus. If i can find my 111 i will post a picture for comparison.

Vit., thanks ! Only 10,000 explains why they are not often seen. It could be a very usable knife, same size blade as a 5" LB but much more slender and light weight.
Even though almost rare collectors don't seem to have much interest in the metal handled knives.
