    Nothing special just a couple of pieces of Americana from the 60's and 80's. I picked them up at the Valley Forge Gun show last month. $10 for the 95111 and $1 for the Imperial.

    I know they're not collector items and were made in the hundreds of thousands if not a million but they have a certain allure to me so I thought I'd share.


    Imperial Kamp King I can only presume 1960's (might be older or newer) anyway made in USA:

    Craftsman 95111 to go with it's little brother that I already had the 95282. I'm guessing ca 1980's for both: (again might be older or newer)

    Last is this knife given to me by my brother-in-law. It's marked Red Deer on the blade and Pakistan. (hey it was free and makes a good toss around knife)

    That Kamp King brings back happy memories; my first knife! And given me by my father in 1965... I dropped it into a river in South Carolina within the year and was inconsolable but have since learned 'that which you enjoy and use the most is the soonest lost or broken'.

    I do believe that your Crafman's knives are Schrade's.

    Camillus manufactured knives for Craftsman as well.

    I'm looking forward to the start of the yard/garage sales this year. I live in an older suburb of Philadelphia, PA and have recently noticed that the old Imperial, schrade, Colonial ect.. knives, which seem to be everywhere, can be bought for like a $1.

    Come on warmer weather.

    Thanks for the comments,
