I just love Camillus knives. They were a well built and solid knife. No frills. Sharpen up nicely and I have yet to find one that has any wobble when open.

All very nice knives. I know they are the same, but the Remington pulls at me a bit harder for some reason.

The Remington is a Camillus made contract knife made for Buck (early 80s), notice their classic Buck slanted bolsters. I believe, unless one of the retired guys says different, they had a overrun and ground off the Buck tang and lightly imprinted Remington and used Remington shields in place of the same shaped Buck Knife,bolt and hammer shields. I believe these were offered in SMKWs catalog.

I have one identical to your Cold Steel stockman, but with a Camillus shield.

I agree totally with your first 5 words Invoice "I just love Camillus knives " - every one I have owned - or seen is a great knife - so well made - even the most basic models.

Me too! - its those neat Bolsters!

I'm not a big stockman guy but those look cool linded up together. I wonder why the Remington (Buck) didn't use two additional pins on the handle like the others? Cost or maybe knowing they'll stay with one pin, epoxy and the slanted bolsters or what? Maybe a slip joint maker could chime in on this....
Tom, Your way ahead of me, I didn't even know Cold Steel made slip joints!!
I wish Cold Steel still had those traditionals made.
They were pretty cool. :thumbup:

As 300 said they were probably leftover from when they were making them for Buck. To save money they skipped the pins.
I have some other Remingtons with same frame. Gotta find the pics or take some more.
I really love this size.

Invoice, that's a nice trio! I wonder if I may impose a picture request on you? One from the top of the spines, with all blades at rest, and one or two of the how well the spine/s match up with the leading edge of the backspring/s when open.

Thanks, MUCH!.

I'm rather partial to the Remington knives of the late 1980s and 1990s which of course were made by Camillus. As others have said, all built well.

My best win was a Camillus Moose I caught on the bay a few years back for $5 and minimal shipping. Excellent knife. Plenty of snap, crisp half-stops, and everything put together right. Sometimes even a blind hog can find an acorn. ;)

Plenty of love, and sorrow in their passing, for Camillus here. It also sucks because to the best of my knowledge they were the guys making the Carbon V knives for Cold Steel right here in the U.S.. I miss my Trailmaster which lived up to the name out in the woods and since I passed my old model SRK on down to my son. Get past the hype and those were two solid performers.

Loving those three OP. The Remington is my favorite as well, but for the rounded bolsters more so than the slant.

When Camillus was supplying the Cold Steel knives made using Carbon V (~1995 - 2007), Cold Steel contracted with Camillus to make some Carbon V pocket knives, as well.

Very nice! In my experience, not much can beat a Camillus for a hard-working, well made pocketknife. :thumbup:
