Buzz- Thank you for that PDF kind Sir!
Interesting Kastor VP!
Not a traditional scout/camp style but it is a Boy Scout knife Very sturdy and light so it is a great one to have along in the woods, I really like this knife
A "Bucklite 422" with Scout handle and Scout blade etch. A Buck 412. ~1985-1990. Steel is 425M
I have a 422. I agree. It's a great little knife that I often carry in the summer when wearing cargo shorts. (I'll refrain from an illustrative picture of that. Not a pretty sight.)
I can guarantee that you look much bester in shorts than I do ... People became ill when they saw me in shorts.
Being the "nice guy" that I am, I do not wear shorts in public.
I wear shorts in public. It's good for the whippersnappers to be reminded of mortality.
My mom gifted me her old girl scout knife from 1950. This is one I can treasure and pass down to my daughter.
I love it next to the old insulator glass... great pic! That knife is hard to find for a decent price without it being all scratched up... getting it gifted is awesome! I always say... "free" is worth saving up for
I landed this c.1949-1955 Imperial Boy Scout knife the other day... I have (3) other Imperial Scouts like this but they are all pretty beat up; this one is in much better shape
That's a good looking old knife.
Thanks for the nice comments, I appreciate that!
Remington "Bandit" Scout pattern (by Camillus)
Don't camp but just could not resist the stag on this beauty. Posted before but still lovin' it.
Great scouts everyone! Im awayting my first one, just couldn't resist, seeing all the beauties here.
Lately I've been looking at the older German versions of Swiss officers knives (spartans). Numerous makers in Solingen made them, often in stainless steel. Companies like Hartkopf or Christians who'd use horn for scales or Kaufmann who'd make them with plastic scales for various companies and out their name on them. Some would also feature stainless scales. Would any of you gentlemen happen to have any, so he can post some pics?
In 1972, I had a paper route in Ft. Richardson, AK. I was 12 and bought my first knife. It's a Colonial.
I received this CubScout knife from my parents sometime back in the 70's. It's a Camillus so I decided to try to find a Camillus Boy Scout knife, because I was a Boy Scout but just carried a different knife then. I picked the Boy Scout one up recently for a fair price. Don't think it's really ever been used much at all.
Another wartime PAL Blade Co Army Spec 17-170. Brass pins and steel liners. This one with the earlier two piece Remington can opener.
Been looking for a nice c1958-1962 Imperial Boy Scout and got this one last week
Now you can get examples of all the color variations.
The black one with the silver plastic shield was the issue model when I joined, but most have badly shrunken scales even when the blades are not severely boyed.
I feel like I should get the red one too Thomas but I think it's sort of ugly Is this the one that you were issued?
Yes. The colors on the next one range from tan to a very red brown.
