This is an original Camillus CUDA with a blade made of genuine Damascus steel. The knife measures 5" closed, with a 4" tanto-style blade that is made of Damascus steel. The blade is marked on the left side: "CUDA/ USA ". Of course, CUDA stands for "Camillus Ultra Design Advantage".The knife opens quick-as-a-wink by pushing the checkered button forward--t are no springs, and the action is very smooth and quick! It is NOT a switchblade or an "assisted opening" knife--but it opens just as fast! The handle is made of checkered G-10 which, as you know, is so tough, it's used as guard material for hunting knives. The knife is in factory new condition, in the original box. One note: the knife was "smoothed up" at the factory--this was necessary, in order that the CUDA opening mechanism would work easily. This means that some of the sharp corners of the blade were smoothed over, after the blade was etched to show the Damascus pattern; this was necessary so that the blade would open so easily and quickly. Of course, this final smoothing doesn't show, in the CUDA knives made with 154CM blades; it does show on the Damascus blades, since they were etched prior to assembly, and before final fitting. And, as you know, Camillus Cutlery went out of business and in September, 2007, everything was auctioned off, including tooling. And this fine Damascus Camillus CUDA will never be made again.
