    hey all,
    i picked up a camillus 2 blade #51 Barlow 3 3/8" w/Red/Brown sawcut scales, barlow stamp on the bolsters, long nail pull, blades for the most part looked intact
    The tang stamp has 3 lines (all caps)
    CAMILLUS (italic with a line underneath)
    NEW YORK
    USA
    Any ideas to how old?(i know this can be difficult, just a general time frame)
    i may clean it up to carry not sure yet
    when i receive the knife i'll post picts
    got my fingers crossed! New to the ebay purchasing and it still makes me a nervous wreck!
    as always thanks for any info!
    Cheers
    ivan

    Do you have a picture of the stamping?

    I believe Camillus began to use the 3 line (with Camillus completely underlined) in 1960.

    Maybe CAMCO or Phil can tighten the time frame if you have a picture.

    P. S.
    Whooooops! I see you will post a picture when you get it. Sorry.

    I saw that knife on ebay and it looked pretty sweet. I'm glad we didn't get into a bidding war. If you don't mind, what was the final price?

    $15.50 + 2.95 postage
    i thought i did pretty good, :D
    i'd pay more for anything new thats for sure, and the blades didnt look reprofiled.
    as far as ebay goes i'm a newbie, a bidding war would have been very short if it would have involved me:D

    Thanks
