Thanks to all that have participated thus far.

This model was part of the post-World War II knives. From Randall Made Knives: The History of the Man and the Blades, by Robert L. Gaddis, pp108-109
Quote:

The model that got fifth spot in the photo was a civilian version of the Fighter and was named the 'Camper.' It had the Fighter's blade without the top edge being sharpened and was thus offered in the same selection of 6-, 7-, or 8-inch blade lengths. The hilt and handle shapes were exactly the same as on his new Hunter model. While only moderately popular the first couple of years, this style was eventually accepted by boaters, as well as hikers and backpackers. The heavily made straight blade has proven to be excellent for general camp chores and all-around outdoor usage.




From the current catalog, p.10
Quote:

Among users of this model is Bradford Angier, famed wilderness expert and author, whose special adaptation is the nickel silver hilt, black Micarta handle, wrist thong and compass. The late Ross Allen, internationally known authority on reptiles, also carried a Model 5.




Current Model 5's come in 5'',6'',7''and 8'' blades of 1/4'' stock. There is a model 5 with a 4'' blade of 3/16'' stock known as the Small Camp and Trail Knife.

Lady and gentlemen may we please see some Model 5's.
Thank you,
Kevin

Here is my 5. I inherited it from a WWII Navy Vet. I do miss our talks. Learning WWII history from those that were there just can't be beat.

1950's model 5-6, one of my favorites, almost looks like a clip point, just a little...

That looks like it could be the little brother to mine. You take much better pics than I do though.
