The new little GEC Pemberton should as well. Good call on the #4, I forgot that one didn't have a lock ring.

Comment by John Macnab on March 6, 2013 at 10:05am

RE: Liam S. comment. The Opinel No. 4 would fall neatly into that category. When I heard about the regulation change this morning I told my wife it was an excuse to buy a new knife.

Comment by Liam Strain on March 5, 2013 at 6:27pm

TSA is updating it's regs to allow for small, non locking, non "contour handled" knives to go in carry-on bags. 

Blades must be under 2.36" (6cm) and less than .5" wide. So many small swiss army knives, and traditional slip jointed folders will qualify. Still a ridiculous regulation - but baby steps!

There is a whole book on Boy Scout knife identification (I don't have it) - but I will say, that pattern doesn't look like any scout knife I know of, and even the better regular ones rarely cost more than 20-30 on ebay. Unless that is something really early or rare, I don't think I'd pay that much. 

This website might help:

It looks like no official knife said "Boy Scout"

It only had thirty bucks on it , will have to go back and look for the manufacturer now . Thanks Liam
Comment by Liam Strain on February 13, 2013 at 3:22pm

It depends on which manufacturer that is. If it's one of the original Camillus ones, they are pretty desireable. Personally, while I like some character, that one is a bit more worn than I like on my knives. 

Lots of original boy scout models available in better shape.

how much should i pay for this

Comment by Brian Splash on February 12, 2013 at 8:46pm

good to know

I've seen a few of his go up for sale at bladeforums. They generally go quickly and people seem to speak highly of his work, but I've never owned one. 

Comment by Brian Splash on February 12, 2013 at 4:00pm

Is anyone familiar with Fremont knives out of Riverton Wyoming USA made by a fellow named Mike Draper , any feedback would be great .
