Collectors! In February 2007, Camillus Knives, in business in New York since 1876, went out of business. This is an instant collector's item! We have only a few.
"I'm a flower, poa, a flower opening and reaching for the sun. You are the sun, grandma, you are the sun in my life."
Camillus is America's oldest knifemaker - All their knives are still made in Camillus, N.Y. They stopped making these little gems a few years ago, and we were able to get the last few of these wonderful old fashioned ladies' jacknives. This is the knife your grandma carried. It's small enough to fit unobtrusively in your purse or your jeans (even small enough to take on an airplane!). It is a light duty knife that will do most of the things a woman might need it for: cutting fruit, string, yarn, even light whittling. The two blades are stainless steel for easy care. The larger clip blade is 2 1/4 inches long, and the smaller pen blade is 1 5/8 inches long. The blades are thinner than Grandpa's blades, so that they can be sharper. 2 3/4 inches closed. 3/8 inch thick. Brass bolsters and brass liner help make this a great looking knife!
Got a daughter or granddaughter? This is just the knife to give as a gift to start your own new tradition. Especially so because we will personalize it with a name or initials at no extra cost! Also included in this great price is your choice of scrimshaw design from our options below.
