Boy Scout Bird Hook Knife

Post by GrouseGuy » Tue Mar 02, 2021 11:49 pm

I saw a Camillus Boy Scout bird hook knife on EBay some time ago.
Same design of their wildlife series with the Turkey, goose, duck, pheasant.
This one had the Boy Scout emblem on the knife rather than the bird head.
Was this a one off or a production knife.
I would like to buy one.
Thanks

I'm gonna take a crapshoot and say it's a one-off. Camillus, in their final days, just put whatever fit together, no matter if it looked right or not. In addition, people made complete knives from parts, and it could have resulted that way. I would presume, also, someone could have fitted a BSA emblem to an existing, used Wildlife Series 0knife that had, perhaps, lost the shield.

Thanks, Cody. That makes sense.
