The All Scout Knives Thread

Post by Miller Bro's » Wed Apr 22, 2009 10:54 pm

I think it is time to start a thread that shows All Scout knives. They can be boy scout, girl scout, cub scout, etc. They can be official or non official, folding blade, fixed blade, hatchets, axes, or anything with a blade. Please list the maker, and some info about the knife with your posted picture. This should become a great resource for all interested in old scout knives. There are several collectors here at AAPK that can contribute quite a few knives to this post. All you brand collectors, let`s see the different models by makers such as Remington, Ulster, Robeson, Case, Camillus, Schrade, Etc. I will start things off with 10 Scout knives, with more to follow. Feel free to jump in and post your collection of scout knives. ::tu::

Thanks, M.B.

Re: The All Scout Knives Thread

Post by RobesonsRme.com » Thu Apr 23, 2009 1:50 am

This is a thread I can sink my teeth into. Robeson made some great scout/utility knives.

Robeson used a unique can-opener/cap-lifter blade and a short stubby screwdriver blade. If you see these two blades on a scout/utilty, regardless of how it's marked, it was almost certainly made by Robeson.

The first knife is a bit of a mystery. It is an officially marked and shielded Girl Scout two blade, bone handled penknife. The springs are somewhat subdued as on a Utica Featherweight. Robeson is not known to have ever had a contract to make official GS knives. I know of three of these knives. The bone indicates 1930's manufacture. There are two valid, but not supported theories for their existance. One writer has stated that Robeson submitted fifty such knives during the 1940's in an attempt to win a contract. Others have suggested that Remington, ramping up for WWII weaponry production asked Robeson to complete a production contract for the GS knives.

I have no idea. But, the second theory makes more sense to me. This knife is definitely pre-WWII, by both the bone and the tang stamp. A local knife collecting friend found this knife in the drawer of a bedside table at an estate sale here in town. The table and contents were priced at ten dollars. When he asked how much for just the knife, they gave it to him. I wasn't that lucky. He sold it to me for what Levine stated was the value of the similar Remington, $250.00.

The three bladed U.S. Army knife is rare and essentially mint.

The four bladed 214's include one NO-RUSTAIN version, and a Strawberry Bone.

The 814 is a junior sized knife.

The Globe and Ka-Bar are Robeson made knives. The Globe is pre-WWII, the Ka-Bar post-WWII.

The four bladed bone handled knife without a shield is another Army issue WWII item.

The Terrier dates 1910-1916 and is truely rare.

The two blade CAMPERS knife qualifies, I think.

The Stevenson marked knives are WWII issue. Military knife collectors know they were made by Robeson, note the can-opener and screwdriver blades on the first one. The second one conforms to the MIL-K standard enacted during the war. These knives are marked only on the bail. The first one is marked STEVENSON-1944, The second one just STEVENSON. No one knows who Stevenson might have been. There is a New York company by that name that manufactures grinding stones and grinding compounds. They existed during the war. It's possible Robeson was one of their customers, and supplied the blades, and Stevenson assembled the knives as their part of the war effort. I've written Stevenson Manufacturing Co. about that possibility. They did not think the question worthy of a response.

The six blade was a German made knife imported by Robeson during the 1950's.

Charlie, those Robesons look fantastic...................
But honestly, do you think any of them have ever been camping? :P

Here's a few more of mine. They have obviously had lots of experience "roughing it". :lol:

Great thread MB!

I'd like to remind any members who have official Boy Scout knives or Cub Scout knives in their collections that ihttp://www.scoutknives.net/s is always looking for additions to thier online collection. One of our own AAPK members, AllenMcB is the founder of that site, and I know he would appreciate any photographic contributions anyone here would be willing to make. The site is dedicated to creating an online archive of all official Boy Scout knives and axes. They don't have to be mint condition to be used either.
Thanks,
Phil

Phil, that two blade CAMPERS is all scratched up. Can't you see how worn it is?

MB, I watched a man lay ten one hundred dollar bills on my table in Dalton, GA one year trying to buy that Girl Scout knife. I wouldn't sell. What else could I do? It was a display only table.

Guys; this is good thread and you all have posted some great knives.

You've just got to think that Ulster took the left over parts of their 10th Mountain Division/1st Special Service Forces knives to make those five blade scouts in the early 50's.

I have always loved that little hat shielded Remington.

More Remington, Winchester, S&M, NYK anyone?

Charlie, If that scratched up CAMPERS knife is bothering you, I will gladly take it off your hands :wink: :lol:

I have an ulster made just after the war almost identical to the 10th div. model, except it has no bail. The blade is etched Ambercrombie & Fitch. So ulster was trying to make this model into a commercial item, however I don`t think it caught on with the public.

I will be posting more knives soon.
