Camillus #72 Question.

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.

It already has. I have a severe case (no pun intended) of pocket knifeitis.
I don't want to be cured.

Question has been answered but I’ll just toss in that I have an Ulster 58OT MEDIUM STOCKMAN that was my Grandfathers and my Fathers - it has no tang stamp whatsoever. I also have an NIB example with the tang stamp and they match perfectly except for the stamp - my guess has always been tang stamp step was missed in production. OH
