Steel Sahlute fellow Steel Saluters!! WOoot Wooot!
One of the beautiful things about buying and reselling knives is the knives that stop by my address for s short visit.
Recently this vintage (tang stamp indicates 1936 – 1952 for years of production) Imperial Boy Scout BSA 3 blade whittler knife made a stop by.
What a slick knife.
It has a coping blade (squared off blade) and two clip point blades. A knice long pull (nail nick slot) is ever present on the main blade. The handles are probably a composite. Brass liners and nickel silver bolsters I presume. (Please let me know if this info is not correct).
Also, please note the super hero shield on the markside handle – Boy Scouts Eagle and the words “Be Prepared.” Gotta love the Boy Scouts. Support a scout today wouldcha? They are always in search of funds to help experience the outdoors lifestyle that is so sorely missed in today’s world.
By the way, here’s a link that is loaded with vintage scout knives and shields identifications:
Listen, thanks for stopping by. Hope you’ll do so again soon!
Until then….sahlute the steel!!
