It occurs to me that we should have a What is Your Latest Old Camillus? I suppose it might be helpful to define old by pre-1960, roughly.
I will started out by posting a Camillus Coke Bottle Hunter that I picked up recently.
The tang stamp is CAMILLUS/CUTLERY CO./NEW-YORK
Goins' dates this tang stamp as circa 1915-1918 with serif letters, which this stamp has. The tang stamp is light, but with a magnifying glass it is pretty clear. This knife has steel beautiful big shield is nickel silver. I love the double swedge grind on both sides of this blade, clear down to the match striker pull. The blade is about 1/4" short but it has good snap on opening and closing, and at the half stop. The wood appears to be ebony.
