Not really planning on selling it since my dad brought it home with him from Viet Nam, I was just curious.

Picture representative and not of my actual knife because I'm lazy:

Without seeing your actual knife.... ~$80

I paid 50 for one like yours. The maker makes the difference. I had mine stolen by some jackass

They're around 30 bucks. I'd imagine that, sentimentally, yours would be worth far more to you. Cool keepsake.

My dad has one he used to use as a hunting knife. I hope to have it one day.
I believe they are still in production, I bought one new in the box about 4 years ago.

$45-50 best....if it was a Randall, then it would be another story.

They are still in production, but I'd expect one made in the VN era to get close to double what a NIB one would go for.

If they can be bought new I might get a couple and put this one in the safe. It's a really useful knife when I'm camping and such, but I feel bad about potentially damaging it.

I have one I bought while I was in the service. It's marked Camillus New York.

Good knives and are still made.

The older ones will bring $50-80 in nice shape. Early early ones ( Vietnam Vintage ) will bring a good premium from a collector as they are harder to find.

Magnesium fire starter fits perfectly in the stone pocket, keep on in mine that I use for a hunting/camping/hiking knife.
