No line Camillus DeLuxe 83

Post by doglegg » Mon Aug 02, 2021 3:32 pm

Fished this little no line tang stamp Camillus DeLuxe 83 out of the bay recently. I like the milled liners but the no line tang stamp is what caught my eye. Thanks for looking.

Fished.....
Very NICE catch, Floyd! ::tu:: ::tu::
Can you please post a clearer picture of the pattern # stamp?
I'm pretty sure that it is not a pattern "80."
It looks more like a pattern "83", a stockman pattern.
Compare it to the pattern "80" pocket knives here:

Beautiful knife Floyd! ::tu:: ::nod::
I especially like that long pull that goes all the way out to meet the swedge. That looks great! :shock: ::nod::
