Yes it is ::nod:: Does it look like it was taken apart to you or re-worked?

She's 3 1/2 inches closed.....most of my Scouts are 3 3/4 closed. :|
Isn't the Featherweights and Brownies 3 1/2 ? ::shrug::

It is kinda weird that the shield says "Scout Knife"...maybe it was reworked..and the bail wouldn't fit correctly. :shock:

If it was originally a 4-blade knife and a blade or two was broken, it could have been taken apart and made into a 2-blade knife. I don`t have many German made scout knives so I can`t say for sure what is going on with this knife. If I had it in hand I could tell better if it has been worked on ::nod:: ::skeptic::

Were all the two blade Girl Scouts aluminum frame or just the feather-weights?

I'm thinking that’s what more than likely has happened...also , I took a better look at it this Morning and its 3 5/8 closed. ::nod::
I like it....I'll put a bale back on it and add it to my Scout collection. ::tu::

Picked these up on a lot deal. (seller pic)

Most are pretty much standard issue, but the Imperial BSA, other then a bit of tarnish, looks to be unused and the etch is still visible.
I do have a few questions about this one though.

There aren't any visible tang stamps or etch's, but isn't this what would be considered a 2-piece Remington style can opener? Did anyone else use this same style? It seems to be a reasonably well made knife, but the overall style's not what I think of when I think of a Remington Scout knife, and not sure why no I.D. markings.

Thanks, WB

I believe it’s a PAL Cut. Co. . ::nod::

Looks like you may have 2 Pal's.....the 2 behind the red one on the right. ::shrug::

I lean in that direction too, although I'm curious as to why there's no tang stamp.

WB to answer you question about the can opener, Pal used the same tooling that Remington had been using before Pal bought them out, so their can openers looked the same.

Thanks guys. Pal makes perfect sense, I don't know why that one didn't occur to me. I have a few Pal knives, all have tang stamps. (Pal Blade or Pal Cut. Co.) It doesn't seem like there's enough wear to have worn away the stamp and i'm not familiar with Pal ever using etch's as opposed to stamps, so not sure what the deal is. I suppose it could have had the spear blade replaced, but if so, it was done quite awhile back. The pin has the same rough texture as the iron bolsters. Just doesn't look to have been tampered with. ::shrug::
JR, that next one back is a Utica Kutmaster.

Thanks again, WB
