Below is a link to a knife listed currently on ebay. It is a fake. I know it is fake and I'll share with you why I know that after I've given a few others a chance to see if they can tell why it's definately a fake.

At first glance, I don't like that shield for a Case Knife, but the front right blade in the bottom picture is a blade that Case produced as a can opener. As far as I know, no one else used that blade. With that said, I don't doubt you. That's all I could get from the pictures above. I'll click on the link and see if I can solve the mystery. I like the way you presented this one. It makes it more fun to "find the flaw" and only because you say you're sure.

Okay, Miller Bro's post came in while I was typing. Can we explain the can opener? I could be mistaken, but I thought I saw Knifeaholic say once that, that particular blade was only made by Case. On to the auction.......... ::shrug::

Cruising ebay, I've found Imperial's, Ulster's, and LF&C's with that shield. Since Case never made an Official BSA Knife, we know that the frame isn't right, assuming the shield, handles and frame came from the same place. Wouldn't that leave us with both blades on that end having been changed? Here are the links to a couple of "for real" auctions. Imperial and LF&C:
http://cgi.ebay.com/Vintage-Boy-Scout-Pocket-Knife-Imperial-/250777639376?pt=Collectible_Knives&hash=item3a638319d0
http://cgi.ebay.com/EARLY-BOY-SCOUT-POCKET-KNIFE-L-F-C-UNIVERSAL-O4666-/260741697336?pt=Collectible_Knives&hash=item3cb56a8f38

I'm going to guess they used the frame of an Imperial or Ulster. Opinions? Excuse me if it seems like I'm having fun with this, because I am. I love a good mystery.

Well, besides Case never made an Offical Boy Scouts knife, is the blade placement wrong also?

Bail should be penned, frame is wrong, punch blade looks wrong, LF&C shield looks wrong, and I thought they had brass liners. How's that for a guess?

Is 2005 the first year Case made a BSA knife?

BINGO!

Case never made an official Boy Scout knife until the year 2005, so a "Tested" era official Case Boy Scout knife would obviously be a fake.

Dimitri has it right that the frame for the ebay knife appears to be from an L.F.& C. official Boy Scout knife.

I have attached below a picture that has one of the original L.F.& C. official Boy Scout knives like the one I suspect was used for the doner frame. The bolsters are a bit different so I'm not positive more than two knives were canabalized to produce this hunk-o-junk now offered for sale.

I have also attached my only example of the style of Case knife that apparently was utliized for the spear blade and the can opener blade.

Also posted below is a poor picture of the first official Boy Scout knives that Case produced in 2005. I added them cause I like showing em off. :P

Thanks for all the replys.

Phil

The shield is LF&C.

Case never used that shield, and didn't make an official BSA knife until recent years.

Philco,

Just curious, On all the Case Scout Knives of Pattern 6445R in the Tested Era, I thought they all the pattern number stamped?

Nice mystery Phil. I enjoyed the suspence, but I didn't know squat about any of it. I'm still curious though. It was stated that L.F. & C. made the B.S.A. shield. Did all knife makers make their own B.S.A. shields? Didn't Boy Scouts of America have there own specific design for their shield?
