A new acquisition. I collect Camillus-made Buck 300 series knives, and though I already have a CC-made 317, (the equivalent to this knife), I thought it would be nice to have both the Buck and…Continue

"Just found out on the BCCI Facebook Group that the #307 above was actually a 1995 exclusive for SMKW, it just looks like a pre '86. Apparently there were only 1,000 made; wow!! This was confirmed by a "like" from a well known company…"

'72-'86 Buck #307 Wrangler in Yellow Sawcut Delrin

Here is something you don't see that often, a '72-'86 Buck #307 Wrangler in Yellow Sawcut Delrin made by Camillus for Buck. I've seen this handle color in post '86 Buck-made knives, but this is the first one of this color and vintage that I've seen for sale, so I couldn't resist, (I have seen other models of this era in Yellow Delrin but this was the first yellow #307 I've seen). I have Yellow Delrin knives of models #301, (post "86), #303, (also post '86), #332, #331 Barlows & #322…See More

"The tang reads "Remington UFC" inside a circle with "Made In USA" wrapped around that. R 1063 is also stamped on the back side of the same blade. Can't find a lot of info on it so I have no idea of its age or era. Still…"

IKC auction Remington R1063 Jack Knife

I've been offline awhile, sorry about that, but naturally one of the first things I do when back is to bid on a pocket knife. Won the bidding on this old Remington Jack here on IKC, it has great jigged bone handles and it is in decent condition considering how sharpened-down the blades are,(though still very usable). The seller Bryan took better photos than I did, so I'll post those here instead of mine. It is a very solid knife, even after being well-used and oft-sharpened. I would rate the…See More

Finally a new, (to me), knife to report, a genuine Camillus TL-29 found at one of my honey hole local thrift stores. Hardwood handle, stamped with the model number and in pretty good condition, (shown as found, uncleaned). Glad to be collecting again, at least for the time being.…

Thrift Store Treasure

Just found this Camillus 5" Boy Scouts Of America Folding Hunter, jigged bone handles, single bolster, BSA shield & inscription, and oh, did I mention the oh-so-cool secondary serrated blade? This has separate locks for each blade, something I have never seen before. I've been watching this knife at a local thrift store for months, hoping no one would buy it out from under me, fortunately it was priced so high no one snagged it, so I took a chance and waited for a sale. Well, today they…
