Uscg ww2 pocket knives

Post by damcon3 » Sun Oct 25, 2020 9:45 pm

I wonder if anybody else collects variations of these knives. There are a few more I am looking for. Most notably the Kutmaster with no bail!

Very cool. I didn’t know there were so many variations.

So as far as I know there are 5 variations of the kutmaster, 2 of the imperial, and 4 of the Camillus (i am Including the 3 line address knife.)

KUTMASTER: 2 Distinct blade patterns, one with a more square cut end and relief cut by the Ricardo. Both blade patterns are observed with and without the approved USCG marking. Then there are the knives that never had a bail attached.
CAMILLUS: three line and four line addresses, with and without the USCG marking
IMPERIAL: with and without marking.

I didn’t either!

My oldest boy has INE my dad have him, a Camillus. I don’t purposefully collect them, but if one came along I wouldn’t kick it out. It looks like a very handy pattern. I loves me a big ol sheepsfoot blade!
