    Not finding the answer to this digging around using the search function....

    Is it safe to assume that a Camillus knife is 1095 if it lacks the "stainless" tang stamp?

    I'm primarily interested in Camillus Scout, Camper and Cub Scout type knives, but am also interested in some of the lock back knives.

    I'm mostly interested in 1095 blades though and some of the examples I see that lack the "stainless" stamp sure look awfully shiny - too shiny.
