 Camillus Marlin Spike ~ Vintage

Camillus began making these knives in 1915.  These were made under contract for British War Department.  This was most likely the first government contract Camillus was ever awarded. This knife was made in the 1930`s according to the tang stamp. This is a knife with a lot of history and character. The bone handle is in very good condition for its age and use. The blades are also in very good condition with a nice patina. The main blade and spike has some wobble. The overall condition of the knife is very good. It is a nice historic collectible knife.

There has been no cleaning to the knife, it is "found" condition.
