If you order one from 'em, let me know how it goes. I've been tinkering with the idea of ordering one from that site for a while now, but funds have been scarce.

I can't agree that a NIB Camillus will be of comparable value to a still in production KaBar.
The Camillus M3 in NIB condition will have gone up in value over it's original MSRP.

Their M3 Trench is listed at $44.99, and their basic USMC KA-BAR is $49.99. https://www.armynavysales.com/p-498-original-ka-bar.aspx
So... less, then, if they're still in stock.
Price =/= Value.

ahhh...no offense Dionysusigma...
But I believe you are missing the point that hso is making.
Camillus IS OUT OF BUSINESS. They ARE NOT MAKING their M3 copy any more. ANY Camillus M3 you find will be a 'discontinued' model. Discontinued models of popular patterns ALWAYS bring higher prices than currently made 'comparably' priced models.
