Camillus knives are any knives that were made by the Camillus factory, which has been operating since 1876. Camillus knives are made from carbonitride titanium. A hardening method is used to help the blade hold an edge. The company creates fixed blades, folding knife blades, and striking tools. They create many lines of knives, such as the Survival Collection and the Western Knives collection. A knife made before 2007 is a collectible as this means it was made before Camillus changed hands.What types of folding knife designs are made by Camillus?
