It's actually their Girl Guide Knife pattern, which were once made by many Sheffield cutlers, and seen with both Spearpoint and Sheepsfoot blades :thumbsup:

Thanks Jack! A very useful pattern. Tough and built like a tank.
That's a very nice Ibberson Yachting knife. Small size but stout looking spike.
At least the Girl Guides/Girl Scouts had better knives back then.:)

Yes indeed, and an interesting piece of history to boot :) Thank you, they certainly did. Stan Shaw made one for his granddaughter, when she joined the Girl Guides, and they took it off of her o_O I read an article about the early history of the Usual Girl Guides/Girl Scouts, which was very interesting. Here's another Guide knife, which varies slightly again. I suspect it belonged to a girl called Harriet :)
