Flea Market find!

Post by Unclebob » Wed Jun 05, 2019 12:58 pm

I picked up this nice J Nowill Sheffield fixed blade at the weekend; 1960's ? 9 1/2" overall with a 5" blade.

This is my J Nowill. It’s a 1946-1976 Boy Scouts Of Canada knife. I believe the company is very old and still around as part of another company.

That’s a great knife! Flea markets rock. As a matter of fact, I got mine at one too.
I’m too young to be this old!

That's the first "official" Canadian Scout Knife I have seen. Looks like a great size for everyday use. The Mora I carry regularly (I'd like to EDC it everyday, everywhere, but while legal, I just don't feel comfortable carrying a fixed blade in public) has about the same sized blade. Just about right. For most work, anything bigger is overkill.
