    A member here, Sonnydaze, (Don), was generous enough to gift me 2 Camillus folders that looked to be in need of some tlc.

    After a little work here’s what they look like, thanks Don and happy holiday to you and yours.

    Nice cleanup while retaining their unique characters (and blade etches)!

    I learned a lot about this knife while I cleaned it up.

    It’s part of the Camillus Wildlife Series thAt came out in 1977. The animal pewter sculptures were made from cast made by a renown artist Sid Belle. Nickel Silver Bolsters and SS blades top it off. I can see these knives gettin’ a lot of pocket time, thanks again Don..

    The blades sure look good now! Is there anything permanent that can be done to the white coating that forms on some Delrin? I have it on a few, get it cleaned up with oil, but after a time it's back. Only forms on a few knives I have, some knives that are 45 years old never form it, but others do. OH
