    Hopefully one of the former Camillus cutlers will see this and chime in. Personally I would leave it alone. But if I were inclined to do something to it, I would tend to use something reversible like a carpenter/cabinetmaker's wax filler stick. I don't think it would react with the shrinking plastic like epoxy might.

    I went by the hardware store and got a dark wood nail hole cover stick and filled the gaps with it.

    It's owning a knife like that, and I have a few, when I wish Herman Williams was my next door neighbor.

    I'd say more like 55-60 years.

    I'd say it's a model #67, Premium Stock. The handles may be "Brownstag" or maybe black synthetic (are black synthetic and "Brownstag" the same thing?). Anyhow, I have a couple exactly like it. I love the long nail pull, the slight swedge on the tang side of the clip blade, and the fluted bolsters.

    In bright Sunlight you can tell it is a,very dark brown. Thanks for the information. Who ever owned it over the years took good care of it cause other than scale pulling back it is in pretty great shape.
