    Found this one at a knife shop in Hartselle, Alabama. Shop still has quite a few NOS Camillus knives. This is a five blader with the 30-06 cartridge base for the shield.

    What's strange is that the sample he had on display had a serrated sheepfoot blade. He got one in the box out of a larger box of all Camillus knives, and when we pulled it out of the wrapper, the sheepfoot was plain edged! He asked if I wanted to get another out, but I liked the plain edge better than a serrated anyways, and the main blade spring was stronger than the display knife. This one was fairly sharp right out of the box, and a few strokes on some ceramic sticks put it to hair popping.
