US Navy Marlin Spike.This knife is important to me because it was my first Camillus knife, given to me by my father. Honestly, I don't really know that much about this knife, or Camillus cutlery itself. Just thought this was a good place to share it.
If you want to find out more about Camillus THIS is the place. Phil Gibbs, the guy who started this thread, actually worked at Camillis -- he might have made your knife!
If you want to research "spike knives" you should check out Toby Gibson's webpages The Sailing Knife and we have a group Nautical Knives, Art and Collectables over on the iKC knife forums.
PS -- did you flip the photo of your knife? If not, it might be real collector's rarity -- the blade's nail nick is usually on the "other" side. ;-)
The can opener in the model #S-702 is the same one that is used in the model #S1760 MIL-K knife. So it may or may not be stamped depending what was available when the knife was made. I do not recall that Camillus ever made the model #S-702 for LIPIC. They normally ordered small 2 blade knives with white or cracked ice handles.
Tom, as always, thank you for your input.
So, how many different handle materials do you remember being put on the S702? Awhile back I saw one handled in "tortoise shell" which I assumed was a re-handle.
I'm glad this contest is over.. the thought of dragging out boxes and going through them doesn't sit well...
I do have one I received in a trade for a book a few years ago that I need to dig out and ask about...

A giveaway thread from 5 years ago is probably not the right place to get a value on a knife.
Also I think you need to be gold level or above to ask value.

What is my knife worth ???
