I've got a campanion that I got as part of a trade. It has a tag that is marked proto. I know that doesn't amount to anything so no one needs go there. I had a close look at a normal one at smoky mountain knife works. The main difference I noticed is the grind is completely different. It has what I believe is a flat grind. Also the finish was also much thicker and more coarse than the example at smkw. I'm going to try to attach a few pics a bit later today. I've had this since before kabar started production of Becker so I don't think it could be a kabar.
