    BSA reused model numbers over the generations, so little can be concluded as to date from such numbers.

    Anybody ever wonder why CubScouts knives didn't have can openers? Same thing with the USN knife. The USNMD knife had a can opener.

    I guess they figured sailors and Cubs didn't cook their own meals?

    I know when I was in Scouts, none of us would buy CubScouts blue knives. Knowing in a few quick years we'd be in BoyScouts.

    Actually there were a lot of knives sold thru Navy Stores as personal purchase items that had can openers on them. Hard numbers are difficult to pin down, but between the different branches of service the number of pocket knives made available to service personal for purchase just in the years 44 and 45 number well over 1 million.
