    Here's my Beer Scout in its natural habitat - just opened a beer, illuminated by the beautiful glow of the TV, on the couch with a rabbit in the background.

    So it arrived this aftn. 1st impressions, very nice overall. Fit and finish isn’t what you get on a beerscout but nothing stands out as an issue. It has the typical rounded tip, and the sharpened edge is probably the roughest/toothiest factory edge I’ve ever seen. But it cuts fine and appears quite even so it should sharpen up nicely. It would make for a great gift.

    Good to know. But I actually scored a Crown Lifter on the cheap elsewhere!

    I like my Case Mini-Trapper with cap lifter. It doesn’t have the relentless fit and finish or the nicely hardened 1095 of a GEC. But the Case does come in stainless steel, which is a very nice option. I also like having a thinly ground clip blade for some versatility. No bail either. I happen to love bails, but I know that some people don’t feel the same. Case also has that yummy yellow Delrin that they do so incredibly well. For the price, it’s a great knife.

    Good evening all... I just got my first crown lifter (pics coming soon). I’ve been trying to join your ranks for some time.

    I carry all my knives in slips. For those of you that use something to carry your BS/CL, what are you all using?

    I don't use slips so I can't address that...My Beer Scouts and Navy/Rope knives (both have bails) ride in my back pocket attached to a lanyard (not a "fob" like you so often see but on a true lanyard) that is connected to a belt loop. I generally use a front belt loop and if I don't want the lanyard to droop, I run the lanyard through a belt loop on the side and then the knife slips into my back pocket. My lanyard is somewhere around 16 inches long and provides plenty of play to allow me to easily use without having to detach. My traditional knives without bails, like TCs, Radio Jacks, and Crown Lifters go into the watch pocket.

    Is this a legitimate beer scout knife or a mod? I thought the beer scouts were only in sheep’s foots? Sheep’s feet? Sheepfoots?
    If they were in spear points or even better clip points I found a new, must have.
