The 2011 Remington Official Boy Scout Knife is a blast from the past that, in turn, salutes the distant past. They were part of a factory buy out, so they’ve never been used, carried, or sharpened. They’re a seriously neat piece of USA knife history you can pick for a budget friendly price of about $40.
These knives were the fourth edition of a five-year Remington program that paid tribute to the Boy Scouts of America. They’re authentic reproductions of a 1924 Boy Scout Knife. They have a 2.375” 440 stainless steel spear point blade, a cap lifter with a screwdriver tip, and a can opener.
We seriously love the mint julep jigged bone handles which are accented by the iconic “Be Prepared” shield. They have nickel silver bolsters and pins with stainless steel liners. They also include full color, vintage style packaging, a postcard version of a reproduction of Normal Rockwell’s “A Scout Is Friendly”, and a Remington Collector’s Edition certificate of authenticity. Each knife is 3-3/8” closed and weighs just over two ounces.
