I was a little poor and could only afford an Imperial Barlow. But I wore that sucker out.....
As a boy, family had a camp (that's Yooper for "vacation cabin") in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, a stone's throw from the Marble Knife Co. This is what every mid-Western boy wanted after he moved on from his Cub Scout/Boy Scout knife:
'Course, we later found the Ka-Bar (even bigger!) and the Buck 110 ... but we all had our Case folders in our pockets in grade school and junior high.
My first knife was a boyscout folder with multiple blades. It was very used. It was then i got obsessed with knives. Later i got a Buck 110, then my first fixed blade was a Buck 119.
I found this while tearing out a wall in my Mother’s basement. I remember it was mine as a Boy Scout. I’m 80 so it has to be 65-70 years old. Boy Scout medallion in tact.
When I finished fourth grade, Dad got me a Puma Earl, which I traded some years later for a Puma Deerslayer. The Deerslayer still goes hunting with me. Those two knives represent about twelve years of EDC carry, and pushed me down the road toward knife snobbism.
thats the exact k nife!
