Jerry I found one of your elusive 53's the other day. Its been rode hard and put away wet. Took some elbow grease and oil to get'er working again. The master blade has a bit of the tip gone which will sharpen out. I already got most of it sharpened out. Needs a little more work. The master blade spring is a little weak but still snaps a little.

It's a dandy little knife. Makes ya wonder why it was so short lived. (speculation)

There's some great ones, guys. I love that Rimfire, dogleg and stockman. The stockman reminds me of a Buck or Schrade OT. ::tu:: ::tu:: ::tu::

Thought I might as well post some pictures of my e-toe, fresh from the shop. I'm more than pleased with its new look. ::ds::

Here is a very fine vintage Camillus Sailor's knife, 4 3/4" closed not including bail. Note the 3 line stamping. This is older than the 4 line stamping. Knife dates to WW I or a little before. Beautiful strong knife, over 100 years old. Quite remarkable i think.
