Very Cool / PRESTO / Girl Scout
This is one of those rare knives you'd never expect to exist. Who would think a Girl Scout would need a switchblade let alone be permitted to have one. Certainly wouldn't happen in our age of political correctness. In any case, what a cool knife! Appearing only in the GS 1944 Equipment catalog, the knife was obviously manufactured for a very short time. Measuring 3-3/8" closed and 7-1/8" open with killer jigged bone handles that are indicative of a Girlscout, as are the steel bail,buttons, liners and pins, along of course with the "GS" etched blade that is near mint, unsharpened with light patina. Everything works flawlessly as one would expect from a knife in such exemplary condition. Rare sock drawer find that could become the jewel of your collection.
