Hi Jan, the thicker one is the Outdoor labeled one, its very noticable too. I should measure them for a comparison, if anyone cares lol.

Hey congrats on the find and finding the info!  The thickness may have been a way for the Outdoor Sportsman folks to lower the cost of the knives they were buying to sell

Donnie uses camel bone a lot as do others of the hobbiest that occasionally sell a knife, it is an inexpensive material that can be stabilized (needs to be done correctly by professionals) and makes great handles.  I once asked a major manufacture why they dont use it and the reply was "only because it will not take dye consistently and will give too many variations to the colors!

I wish more would use it, it reminds me old appaloosa bone and everyone gets a knife that is not just like everyone elses

Ok, so I did some searching and found a picture of the identical blade this time marked Utica Sportsman, so im now sure my Outdoor Sportsman was made by Utica, they must have changed the thickness of these inexpensive knives at some point. My Utica may be later and its much thinner.

Outdoor Sportsman, anyone know who made them? It looks simular to a Utica Sportsman but has enough differences to make me think it was made by another company. The blade is thicker and it has a single swedge on the clip. This is one of those small bowie style hunting knives from the 40's and 50's , thanks.

Anything with Camel bone spells Pakistan. I think many are good quality and own a few. Have seen some that claim French Origen too.
