    That handle sure looks good! I'll bet that it didn't get thrown at many trees.

    I am always hunting for one and never find a scout pattern in good enough shape to make me buy one. Missing scales, deep rust, horribly wobbly blades, or broken tools. But this spurred me to go on ebay, so once again, this forum is a horrible influence.

    I'm ashamed to admit, there were other knives in my youth that didn't fare as well....
