    Unless someone can stake a better claim, this pattern might be known as the Beer Scout, aka Evan's Jack! Or maybe a Florida Jack!

    Evan already owns the title of Beerlow!
    Here is, quite possibly, the only carbon fiber Beerlow in existence!

    Besides the cap lifter, the sheepsfoot is a natural for the #15. Thumbs up!

    I personally would rather not have beer scout stamped on the shield, I would prefer the simple scout shield used on the previous run of scout knives. I wonder if the smooth handle versions will not be stamped as GEC has generally avoided doing a stamped shield with the smooth handle materials.

    I am curious about this as well for both the smooth handle variations. In all.. 'beer scout' will make a conversation piece and all the other criteria of this knife seem perfect for me. I'm just glad and lucky to hopefully be getting one.

    I got nothing against beer (certainly drink my share), but I agree with pistonsandgears on the shield.

    "Beer Scout" shielded on the side of your knife is ...cute. A little too much so. It won't wear well. Not fit for a proper knife.

    Kinda like putting "beerlow" on the side of a venerable TC barlow (with caplifter - next run??)

    The knife shield should just say "Scout" like the prior run. We can then all affectionately nickname it the "beer scout" - My two cents.

    Otherwise this new knife is perfect. Can't wait to get my hands on one. First thing I'll do is crack open a beer and celebrate.

    Has anyone got any verification that it will be a long pull sheepsfoot?

    Mike at CK just announced an SFO "soda scout" just like the production run but with a "Scout" shield. Whew, for a second I thought the shield was gonna say "Soda Scout"...

    Excellent covers on these - natural linen micarta and blood red sawcut bone!!

    I'm in for a micarta "soda" scout and a chestnut beer scout. Nice to be in the front lines for once.

    Thanks for the soda scout SFO Mike.

    I just jumped in for the micarta Soda Scout also.

    My love for knives with bails will be the death of my wallet this summer.
