    If you were a scout, what knife did you carry?

    SAK and a three blade traditional. I don’t know the specific SAK, or the proper names for traditionals with three blades. I carried those from about ages 10 to... 33 or 34.

    How many deer have you slain with that?

    No deer were slain during my scouting career. However, many bad words were uttered during the many wee hours of a frozen paper route, while working and saving for that bad boy.

    Buck 110. Not standard issue, but it's what I had at the time.

    I had an old antler handled camp knife and a stacked leather handled 3” fixed blade. I don’t remember the brand of either, as I was pretty young, and they were just tools.

    I carried a number of different knives. I had the usual "Scout" four blade pocket knife but didn't carry it much. I did carry a Toothpick pattern fishing knife, an medium Stockman by Schrade, and a Case fixed blade. Still have the fixed blade.

    I had a Western folder. I cant recall the model. It was short, and thick. Kinda like a squished Buck 110.
    Edit: It was actually a Western USA S-532 model. Sadly I don't know what ever happened to it, but the sheath is still in my possession. Weird.

    A Scout knife from JC Penny. Spearpoint blade, awl, screwdriver/bottle opener and can opener. Abused the s**t out of it.

    An Imperial Official Scout knife - the usual four tool model. (Still have it 65 years later.) Of course I had to earn my "Totin' Chip" first.

    A Camillus made 'Official' Boy Scout knife with the "Be Prepared" motto on the shield. My youngest son back in Maryland still has it.

    I still have mine somewhere, a red victorinox with a side lock and fully serrated blade. Had a scout logo as well. Found it a month ago and the sucker is still sharp

    I always had a Schrade Old Timer folder of some ilk. My dad spent his "after work" time at the tavern, and he played the punchboards. There was always a board that had various Old Timers for prizes and he brought them home by the bucket load.

    I wanted a fixed blade, so I purchased a Camillus MKII Marine Combat knife for my scouting adventures. Like @bflying, I cursed my way through delivering newspapers for that one.

    SAK or Buck knives were carried when I was in Boy Scouts.

    I had the cheap little jackknife with red plastic handles that you get for selling a certain amount of popcorn until a family friend gifted me a Benchmade Griptilian. I credit that gift with starting my knife habit.

    I think I had a blue Cub one. Not sure what happened to it.

    Of course the standard cub scout knife, but for Christmas one year my parents got me a Buck 110 looking knife made by Sharp. Got it out recently, super thin blade.
