    I'm hoping someone can help me identify this knife. The blade is about 6 1/2". The sheath is original to the knife. Thanks.

    Looks like a 511 (SYKCO); but I am far from an expert on Busse-kin.

    *edited to add - I think the 511 would fall short of your stated 6.5" blade length.

    What does it say on the other side of the blade? (Swamp Rat or SYKCO or ??)

    There's nothing on either side of the blade. I got this from my friend. He bought it from Swamp Rat, but forgot the name of the knife. The sheath came with the knife. Thanks.

    511 has different choil and blade is under 6 inches, also by the time of *11 series there were no cordura sheaths offered, so that would be Camp Tramp.

    Pretty much 100% that it is one of the original Scrap Yard Scrapper 6's. To be sure they were 0.275" to the Camp Tramp's 0.250" and full flat ground compared to saber ground. And 6.5" compared to 7.5". Oh, and SY77 instead of SR101. That is the type Noss couldn't break back in the day. All but indestructible.

    I think you’re right.
    Never managed to snag either one, but looking closer at op’s pic it looks like S6 more than CT

    Yep, they're very similar really. Just a bunch of little, nit-picky differences to the eye. I reckon the most important one is the one you can't see - SY77, so even tougher than the similar Swamp Rats. Pretty special tool.

    Too short, and not saber ground. NOT a Camp Tramp! Likely the SYKCO Scrapper 6 as suggested.

    From the Scrapyard Knife Specs thread over on the Scrapyard Home Forum:

    Scrapper 6 for sure smaller than a tramp and pretty different than the newer stuff.

    Where'd you find my Scrapper? I've been looking everywhere for her? :)
