"Scout Knife" Project

The Camillus Cutlery Company was one of the oldest knife manufacturers in the United States with roots dating back to 1876. The company manufactured Camillus branded knives and was a prolific contractor for other knife brands up until its last days in 2007 when the company filed for bankruptcy.

That one is a bit nicer than mine, thanks for sharing, Joe.

I was just looking at the list of other brands that Camillus made. My Hopalong Cassidy is an Imperial Prov RI. Is that one of their rebadges? I paid $10 for it about 40 years ago, Joe.

If that scout knife were mine I'd consider putting some rams horn handles on it. (Did I say I have a thing for RAMS HORN ?)

Philco, I have a sawmill, what kind of tree does that stuff grow on ::dang:: Actually, I do have some Goat Horn, but I'm still leaning toward the Black Locust, Joe.

I collect chainsaws over 100 CC's, double bit axes, pre-war Model 1899 savages, and my namesake 68 Cuda. I use rarefish383 because I have a 68 Formula S Barracuda convertible, 383, 4spd. The big block was a one year only option in the rag top A bodies and they only made 64 of them. The last time I checked the Mopar registry there were 12 left known to exist. So, it's a rare fish, Joe.

Near 'bout everything you listed there has interest among this group! . ::ds::
And we love pictures !!

I haven't transferred many pics from PB to my computer yet. I guess I could change the name of this thread to "Joe's Projects". Here are a few of my axes, American Beauty, Collins, True Temper Kelly Perfect, and a couple Plumbs, Joe.

Decided on Osage Orange for the scales, Joe.
