America working in conjunction with cutlery technicians at Camillus developed what would become the USMC 1219C2 Combat Knife, otherwise known as the USMC Mark 2 Combat Knife or Fighting Utility Knif

    In addition to manufacture a full line of official folding knives for the Boy Scouts of America (BSA).[8]they also

    The company went out of business in 2007, however Its brand name and intellectual property rights were purchased by Acme United Corporation.
