    Well that's an interesting one. Can I assume that the nail nick on the main blade is located on the pile side? What an odd configuration!

    Harry great stag on the camp knife.

    Now that ulster is also nice,well loved. I'm reminded of something I have read here on BF, can't recall who wrote it but
    Paraphrasing ,when I need to chop or split some wood I grab an axe, when I need to pry something, I borrow someone else's knife....:D

    I like the " Borrow someone else's knife " bit. I expect the Tip of the Main Blade missing in the picture is what reminded you of that . That actually is a result of " Sub-Par Photography Skills " more than anything else .
    I do not think that the Ulster was ever used . Certainly not by me . The handles were dried out when I found it and I used some mineral oil on it to bring some color back into them .

    Neat thread with some great examples. Here is an Imperial Boy Scout "Deluxe" model with pearl cell handles.

    Thanks everyone who has commented and posred pictures. Lots of amazingly nice knives. I am liking all the different variations of the tools. Some are quite unique.

    Thanks, that is correct, no makers mark on the tang, i believe it was a contract knife produced by Camillus for sears. It's a well made knife to bad they didn't put their name on it.

    The nail nick is indeed on the pile side.

    Here's an odd one. It's a delrin covered Imperial Diamond Edge scout, and not one of the usual DE shell knives that you often find. This is the same model as my very first knife as a kid.

    And a great Camillus Cub Scout knife. I love the liner locking tools. Horribly ugly covers, but the rest of the knife is quite nice.

    I find the Remington Trailhand perfect when I take a road trip/camping. The two shields they came out with that I have seen.

    Now I have to check mine when I get home from work. I believe that I have three of them, all with the round shield.

    My addition to this thread is just my BSA knife that I bought last year for one of my GAW's. It seems silly, considering that I give away several scout knives a year, that I only have one scout knife. But I like the knives that I keep to have some meaning to me, and as much as I want a nicer quality scout knife, it has to be the right one. I really liked Charlie Waynorth's camp knife when it came out, but I couldn't afford it at the time.

    I am still hoping that one of these years we will have a scout knife for the annual forum knife. Of course that also means hoping that we will have more forum knives. So here's hoping.

    I believe your Ulster Dwight Divine & Sons scout knife is identical to mine (see post #2) in the thread. Yours is in a little better shape, though. ;-)

    Wow, nice collection every one of those is fantastic. The cat with the compass shield is particularly interesting. Haven't seen one like that before, and it looks like it came that way from the factory.
