  1. Doesn’t look too far off from what I wore when I worked for the USFS back in the early 80’s
  2. I only see Walmart Ontario JPSKs with the fullered blades on their website...if the photos displayed are to be believed as current. My initial thoughts were that possibly Walmart requested Ontario to do a run of the unfullered knives since the belief that fullers are blood grooves runs rampant within the general populace.
  3. As mentioned, the knife is intended to be a tool and used as such. A pistol, as a weapon, should be given quick unimpeded access. I surmise that if a pistol were carried that it would make sense to move the knife to the other side of the belt. Ive often drawn knives with my left hand and then passed them to my right hand to use.
  4. It wouldnt be worth a damn here in upstate NY in the winter... maybe made for the South Pacific.
  5. Maybe not rare but certainly limited. By the way, it’s Army Security Agency...ASA will work.
  6. Could be the handle may have been cracked or otherwise damaged and consequently wrapped with something like white cloth medical tape to keep it together.
  7. I would clean it up and use it...that’s where it’s value lies. They also make great practical gifts for new recruits, Boy Scouts, forestry workers,etc.
  8. First washer behind the guard was trimmed down on the edge side, top (straight side) of guard looks straightened to me, as well as the bend on the other side looks funky and not original. Someone most likely modified it, in my opinion. Who, when and why is open to speculation.
  9. Theres more to the article than what got copied for some reason, let me try again: https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.expressnews.com/news/local/amp/Mystery-San-Antonio-Iron-Works-knives-may-13510303.php
  10. I dont know if this link will work, but Im giving it a shot. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&source=undefined&cd=&ved=0ahUKEwj56oaqhKHgAhUo2oMKHcAeA3QQzPwBCAM&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.expressnews.com%2Fnews%2Flocal%2Farticle%2FMystery-San-Antonio-Iron-Works-knives-may-13510303.php&psig=AOvVaw1wNb2qXB8abzAXDKZkHPJZ&ust=1549333805384048
  11. White web belt with rectangular buckle with EGA. Search google or this forum for images.
  12. Tom was definitely a gold mine of information for all things Camillus and is dearly missed.
  13. What an excellent blade to acquire! Thank you for posting it. I always wondered how much use serrations on military blades ever really get in field use by the troops, but I guess the preference for them is mostly just a sign of the times.
