Camillus Knife?? Help Please!!

Postby New_Windsor_NY » Sat Dec 08, 2018 7:38 pm

Vendor thought it was a Keen Kutter, but not sure.
I think it is a Camillus, but not sure. It measures
approx. 3 1/2" closed, just under 6" with main blade
open and approx. 7 5/8" with main blade and awl open.
PLEASE! What is it? Only tang mark "MADE IN U.S.A." ::shrug::

I think so. That was a mark they used with knives Sears sold in the '30s and '40s.

Thank you all for your input. The shield sure looks like Camillus.
