This Knife tends to alwyas capture me because if it werent for Black Composite Jigged Hnadles- - as in if this had Jigged Bone or Stag- this would be simply an outstanding knife, the build quality is right up there- the Smaller detail like the Swage shaping and the Shape of the Spey etc- really make this knife- I love it!
ENDERES, somewhat of a Elusive Stamping - the Knife is in nice condition- someone long ago cleaned the Knife- but I would rather own this knife than not- Thats for sure! :)

HIGH CARBON STEEL, U.S.A, Camillus top- notch Quality here used on these and as we know their Sta - Sharp examples- I absolutely love these Knives, the Bone on this is simply awesome- it's a lighter Variant than what we are used to seeing from Camillus- but this is nice stuff here!
Has a lovelt Coined Middle Liner, and although used- this extremely well built Knife has been looked after and obviously appreciated- The Walk and Talk on all of these Blades is superb with NO blade movement whatsoever 8)

Man I love the 5 Bladed Beast- again by the awesome Camillus - this Sta- Sharp example is simply Wow factor- well it is to me anyway, I'm going to try and zip it for once :oops: and let the knife itself do the talking!

I had the utmost pleasure of acquiring these knives off one of our local friends here- and I am so thankful to him for these wonderful examples- here is a Cattle Knife that has come from Camillus's very own Factory Display, as you would expect - this knife is absolutely Awesome!! Please forgive the wipe marks of Oil on the Blade folks ::facepalm:: .....

The other Knife that accompanied that beautiful knife above to me here in New Zealand, this knife just takes my breath away- I absolutely think that this Knife is the best! I hope you do do to my friends - I apologise going on - but the amazing build Quality- the attractiveness, their style choice, Blade option choice- and just check out the Gorgeous Bone...There's one Hang of a lot to like in this amazing package....
