    Cool knives. Keep them coming. That Remington was a big one. Are there foreign camping style knives? I am sure English and a few German. What about French, Spanish, Italian, Etc?

    No Scout as such in France, but lots of multis, for camping, fishing or hunting, various sizes. Sometimes callesd Suisse when in celluloïd or acrylic.

    Thank you! Our friend Bernard posted this page of Suisses (Swiss) made in Thiers by (the genuine)
    Pradel til the 70s. They were sturdy, unexpensive and very popular with campers.

    That is an admirable collection. That Sea Scout certainly made me say "Oh My!" Someday I'll track down one of those myself.

    This was my grandfather's. It's a John Primble made by Boker I believe.

    So cool that you have your Grandfather's knife, and even better that it's such a cool one. My Grandfather carried a Scout/Camper too.

    I love that the French scout knives have corkscrews. I recently became part owner of a small working vineyard, so I am finding myself more interested in knives with corkscrews ;)
