I personally find the blue Delrin covers to be horribly ugly, and I'm not into Cub Scout memorabilia at all, but the design of the knife itself is simply awesome. I have two of these scouts, one in carbon steel, and a more modern one in stainless. As you can see, this knife omits the can opener, which admittedly is kind of an outdated tool anyway. But I wonder why the Boy Scouts of America thought that Cub Scouts were worthy of using blades and awls and cap lifters, but the can openers were reserved for the older boys? It's smaller than a normal scout, measuring in at only 3 3/8" long when closed. Here's a quick shot of one next to a GEC #15 for comparison. Very similar in size. It's a great knife for people who love the utility of the scout pattern, but who don't want to carry all of the weight that typically goes with one. It's hard to complain over a mere 2.5 ounces. While it's smaller than a typical scout, it's far more robust than the rather diminutive Case Junior Scout. What makes the Cub Scout very special is the center brass liner. It acts as a liner lock for both the screwdriver/cap lifter and the awl. The screwdriver/cap lifter on the stainless version is much longer than the one on the carbon steel model The awl on the carbon steel version is the classic awl shape with scoop, where the awl on the stainless version is much flatter. Here is the blade etch on the stainless version. The Cub Scout shield Overall, it's a marvelously useful little knife. The blade and tools are almost full sized, but the whole package is small enough to fit comfortable in my running shorts, cycling jersey and sweat pants. It's cheap too. I bought both of these on auction for about $15.00 each. Now if I only possessed the ability to remove the covers and replace them with something a bit more aesthetically pleasing.
