City, that is a great picture of your half of sailors.
I am happy to have acquired another Marlin Spike knife.
Thinking back on the knife i bought in Naha, on Black Market alley, I seem to remember there was a very faint marking on the blade of 'US Navy". John
I know this is an old thread but I am a fan of 697's. Picked up another so here are some pictures.
After Clean Up
Here's another one from Camillus a 1972 Yachtsman. DM
I bought one around 2012, marked "case". It was new, bought in an old general store in Sparta, NC. As I understand, these were made by camillus.
Unfortunately, there was a crack around a pin. I did not know any better at the time, and sent it in to Case for warranty work. They said that they can't replace it, and let me pick a replacement. They told me I could have any folding knife, with any handle material, and any shield. So I exchanged it for a trapper with antique white scales and a fish shield.
Two years ago I sold off that knife. Really wish I would have kept the marlin spike. They are rather neat.
I have a Camillus 697 that I think is older, but in fairly nice shape. I was thinking of selling it. Can anyone give me an idea what it might be worth?
