    Does anyone know approx. when Camillus used this tang marking? It is in three lines on the main blade tang of a stockman. No other markings.

    Thanks!

    Camillus made knives marked "High Carbon Steel" for Sears. I believe that the first time that this tang stamp was used was in 1940. Camillus had several knives with this marking in the factory collection. Camillus acquired the Sears business in 1923.
