Cool knives. Keep them coming. That Remington was a big one. Are there foreign camping style knives? I am sure English and a few German. What about French, Spanish, Italian, Etc?
No Scout as such in France, but lots of multis, for camping, fishing or hunting, various sizes. Sometimes callesd Suisse when in celluloïd or acrylic.Cool knives. Keep them coming.

Thank you! Our friend Bernard posted this page of Suisses (Swiss) made in Thiers by (the genuine)
My love for knives basically began with the quest for the original Dwight Divine / Ulster official scout knives. I've been working at finding the best examples of the old ones that I can find, without breaking the bank of course Although some of these are really hard to find in decent shape even if you have deep pockets But here are the best ones I've found to date, most still have a little etch left on them: ULSC4A (BSA #1502, 1923-1926), ULSC4C (BSA #1503, 1923-1926), ULSC4D (BSA #1502, 1927-1940), ULSC4E (BSA #1503, 1927-1940), the original Ulster Girl Scout knife and the official SeaScout Knife ULSC2A (BSA #1128, 1938-1941).

Still searching for an example of the pearl one... thought I had a nice one but once I got it in hand I realized quickly it was a fake Someone had replaced the scales on a #1502 with pearl. The seller returned my money no problem and appreciated me filling him in all the things that were wrong about the knife. He had a buddy that picked it up at a flea market in Texas and wanted the guy to sell it in his antique store. The guy was not that familiar with knives so I'm sure it was unintentional on his part.
Don't go swimming with that in your pocket, Colin!!
