Thanks Phil,

As for the possum, I like it fried but it's good baked on a platter with carrots, taters and some turnips. ::ds::

S-K I always enjoy seeing that knife, something about it just calls to me

MB I wish I had the sheath, but alas one cannot have everything. I suppose a standard western replacement could be easily had, heck I tink i've even got one laying around minus the BSA logo.

graywolf Welcome to AAPK the friendliest knife forum on the web.

I am afraid I can't help you with AOL issues, but I will say, that is one fine Ulster!
Is that a Sea Scout knife?

Graywolf, would you be able to show a shot of that tang stamp? I'm really curious about the Devine stamp.

Here is an Ulster Knife Co. Sea Scout pocket knife.

It is 4 1/8" closed, 2-blades, a Marlin Spike and a Sheep Foot blade for cutting rope. The blade measures 3 1/4" long.

It has brown jigged bone handles, nickle silver bolsters, shield, bail and brass liners.

It is Ulster model #1128, produced between 1936-40 as an Official Sea Scout knife.

The blade face is acid etched with the official boy scouts logo and the words "Official Seascout"

The one pictured by Graywolf has a short reshaped master blade.

Here are three girl scout knives and one i just cant make out the makers name on any help appreciated, also is there any safe way to clean up a little of the rust with out hurting the collectability issues, i hate to see runt on a good knife. I have used Simichrome and 0000 steel woool on guns, but how far can you push restoration on a pocket knife?

Back with some more pics. What is the trick to getting real close ups my digitals just dont seem to focus close (hate to have to use my Alpa 10d film camera) First is a Camillus newer model just like the sea scout ttype, but the spike locks open and you have to press the bail to close it, nice safety upgrade, next is a differant view of sea scout marked DWIGHTDEVINE, and with its nick at a differant spot than M.S.'s, may be thats why the blade seems shorter differant maker? Blade is 2 7/8 cutting edge, but it dosent look reground. Last is a knife that i was told was a British scout knife but i have my strong doubts, it marked 1944 on the blade a Sheffield. Short of 0000Steel fur and simichrome how can i do some rust abatement on these guys without messing up the collectability issues?
