    I posted this over a month ago and since then have been carrying it quite a bit
    and am still really impressed with it. It could be anywhere from 66 to 90 years old.
    The blades have no play, it has a smooth medium pull with great snap at half stop and fully open,
    The springs are flush at half. stop and fully open. All this coming from a knife sold by Woolworths
    5 and dime, made by Camillus[​IMG]

    Knives are a lot like bourbon it’s great to find a cheap one that’s done well and you enjoy. Cool knife.

    Oh my... we call a "good, cheap bourbon" a grail around these parts.

    That's a neat little piece. That miniscule bolster is cool as hell. Enjoy.

    Nice! Think of all the moments that knife could probably talk about.
