Up for auction is this fantastic Rare antique Camillus Cutlery "Babe Ruth" folding pocket knife - this has got to be one of the very rarest pocket knives ever made by the Camillus Cutlery Company and it is VERY OLD!it is very outstanding and amazing - it is a figural baseball bat made with genuine celluloid handles and with the Babe Ruth signature engraved beautifully on the handle along with a baseball next to the signature - we believe that it was made in the 1920's or 1930's - it is a SMALL sized knife measuring 2 1/2 inches long in the folded closed position and with a 2 inch blade and the other blade is one inch, entire knife when opened up measures just a hair OVER 4 3/4 inches long - it is clerarly signed on each side of the blade - one side bares the Camillus "Cross Sword" early trademark and the other side of the blade reads; CAMILLUS CUTLERY CO. CAMILLUS, NEW YORK - it is in fantastic condition considering its age with very little wear to the handle and very little wear to the blades - no knicks anyw on the blades edge and the tip of the blade is perfect - very minor wear to this knife considering its age - amazing condition and the little wear that it has only adds character and charm - the blade would buff up easily if so desired but we think it should be left all original as it is and it is outstanding! ... read more
