K2825 on eBay

Post by msteele6 » Mon Jun 14, 2021 5:27 pm

I was looking at KK's on eBay and came across one advertised as a K2825 https://www.ebay.com/itm/184698445246?h ... c&LH_BIN=1 I have a K2825 so I knew that it wasn't. If it were a Keen Kutter the frame would be a K754 maybe. The blades are later ones without the E.C. Simmons in the logo which means that Shapleigh already owned the trademark. Here's an actual K2825, Camillus made for Shapleigh:

Good catch! Did Camillus make all of the KK pocket knives with the "Hammer Forged" stamping and forge marks on the blades?
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

All of the ones I own and I don't remember any that I've seen that weren't Camillus.
