My Camillus 72 First Generation

Now you've got two drools out of me Woodwalker. If you post it in another forum I'll be slobbered out. That is a very desirable knife. I'm glad you have it and I'm glad you got it in a special way. ::nod::

Iv'e got to to tell you guys I think this is a very under appreciated knife. It was was made in 1946 or 1947 with Rogers bone handles. The last of a legend so to speak. If you are lucky enough to own one of these OI would most certainly hold on to it.
