Vestal or Scout ??

Postby Jporter1974 » Thu Nov 08, 2018 8:04 am

What is the difference that would cause Wadsworth to call the same knife by two different names? The Language? Where it was sold? I'm very confused with this little knife and any help would be appreciated ~ Jon

I'm going out on a limb here and make a WAG. Since Vestal is on the shield, maybe it was made for the Vestal Watch Co. ::shrug:: That sort of thing happens frequently. Consider the annual AAPK Forum knife. It's made by GEC but has an AAPK tang stamp AND AAPK on the shield.

I can see that happening, because the knife is tiny. If I were to have put a dime with it for size relevance, the dime would hide 90% of the knife. Thanks Jerry ~Jon

Man o man. Just imagine it brand new back in the day hanging from some dapper dressed gentleman’s watch chain threaded through the button of his waist coat and tucked into the pocket on the other side. I wonder how many cigar caps it’s cut off?

That’s a dandy little knife.
