 Nostalgia ! 

Exactly what it is... I was looking in an old desk of my Mothers and found my Cub Scout knife...

STOP  here if you have no interest ... Smiley

otherwise   Cheesy

Would have to have been 1955 , I was 7 and had just won my Wolf Cub badge.
My Granddad gave me this Cub Scout knife .... I'm not sure if it was my first, as I recall a Barlow my Dad gave me.

I know now there two manufacturers of Scout logo knives ...Camillus USA and Imperial also USA

Mine is a Imperial with black bone scales , Aluminum bolsters & a brass Logo (Bear head w/ Cub Scouts BSA )
Bear was your Third Badge (Bobcat , Wolf ,  Bear , Tiger)  and there were arrow head achievement badges )
You may not know this was based on Rudyard Kipling's  Jungle Book

I recall later knives had blue plastic scales....and I believe were Camillus USA

 I carried my knife to SCHOOL  Shocked  everyday in my pocket , but on Scout Meeting Day and in Uniform it was on my belt clip.
( OPEN CARRY ) OH ! MY ! 
Once it was lost and I went to the School Office Lost & Found ...Bingo  someone had turned it in  Shocked and it was returned  Shocked Shocked Shocked
and here it is 62 years later ...

of little value ...they are $15 on eBay .... but this one is priceless  Grin
