    Shouldn't every Friday be "Black Friday"

    That's a good guess Gary... I would say either Camillus or Kingston. Camillus handled a lot of their later WWII with this cheap black plastic that deteriorates / shrinks frequently and based on the shrinkage I was thinking this is a mid-to-late 1940's Camillus. Either way it is from a good...

    Hmm, never considered that actually Cal... I bought it off of the auction site like that a long time ago and always assumed it was an original abalone handled Ulster. I might have to take a closer look at it. ;)

    It was an "around the world" giveaway that Jim did where people got to keep Scotty for a week or two and then pass him on to the next recipient. It was pretty cool :thumbsup:
