    Camillus US Army Folding Pocket Knife 1966

    I never managed to get one of these when I was actually in the service because I kept forgetting about them. Finally found a decent one at an Antique Shop today.

Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle.

    I think mine are all gone. I carried a Swissicon knife for years instead and then the Gerber tool when originally issued.

    I have Swissicon knives I carry. Usually the mini ones but I have several of the larger pocket knives. I just wanted one of these for the US aspect of it. The Swiss knives are superior in quality.

    Marbles once held military contracts, but these appear to be modern reproductions made for the civilian market. Look to be in the $20 range. I don't know if Camillus is the only manufacturer of Military issue knives. Good question.

    Looks like China is making these, BEWARE.

    You can find many different manufacturers, Marbles, Case, Camillus, Imperial...called the model 1961. Stainless was military requirement and started in 1961. There were civilian models that weren't stainless... Look up the "Model 1961 soldier knife" and have a look.

    I'm not sure 1961 refers to a year, I think it's just a model number. I don't collect these at all, too much other stuff on the go.

    I was issued a huge clasp knife originally too.
