That is an awesome old knife Hal! ::tu::

Great find!

Since eBay seller ditwtexas chooses to use this post as a reference for his overpriced knives it should be noted that he is not held in good regard by many of the members here to include me. He references this web site for his convenience but disrespects the site and the members here as well.

Search ditwtexas on this site and see for yourself.

He currently has a Sword brand knife
Camillus No.258 Scout Knife Circa-1928 "Sword Brand" 3-3/4" Closed Stag Handles
with a damaged opener blade and well used master blade that he says is c. 1928 and he has priced at at his usual 20% off for $367.99. This particular knife is worth about $30 in my opinion. 1928 is wishful thinking for this knife.

I didn't look at each reply, but referring to the catalog pages shown.....those prices are mighty, mighty steep for 1928. I'd expect to see
more in the $2.00 to $3.00 range not $10.00 to $15.00......just my thoughts.
