Some "Camilli"

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.

And out of his grave grew a red, red rose, And out of hers, a briar.....
They lapped and tied in a true love's knot. The rose ran around the briar.

Very nice! I never knew much about Camillus until in joined here, it was all CASE with a few Bokers, Eye Brands, and some Delrin Schrades for the kids. But I sure love them now. And those you’ve shown are top shelf.
