Camillus jackknife 1930s or 40s

Post by DTM1973 » Mon Oct 28, 2019 5:53 pm

Got this old jackknife off eBay. A four line Camillus made in the 30s or 40s. Not sure if it was made before WWII or during or how many years they were produced. The knife is in good shape for its age in my opinion. The cream colored handles look nice. Any other information on this knife would be helpful.
