    What was the wood used on the Camillus? I have one, but the covers on my knife are much darker.

    I'm think the wood is jigged cocobolo.

    I have several rope knives, like the pattern, here's a couple, a Camillus with its original lanyard and a trio of Miller Bros.

    No-name one on top may not be a classic example of a rope knife, but it WAS owned and used by a merchant sailor, so it has that going for it.
