    I'm including this because of historical interest. I bought it when I visited the US in '76, so it is just 40 years old. It is a Case trapper, but I converted the long spey blade to sheepfoot, which I find more useful; it involved cutting a new nail nick. I don't carry it, but it is one of my workshop knives:

    I just picked up a couple Chinese Kershaws. I like the assisted opening, blade is good. I used to buy the USA made expensive ones, but I lost two of them. Now I buy 20 dollar Chinese knives with spares.

    I carry it for whatever it is needed for. If someone tries to kill me, it will be needed to defend myself. I don't anticipate it, but you never know.

    I was given this Richardson Scout Knife around 1967. Anyone still give their ten year-old relatives presents like this? The scales on the knife are pretty cheap but the steel is easy to sharpen and work with. It's my wife's favourite pruning blade.

    We have the same custom here in Sweden. You never give a knife as a present. The receiver of the gift have to pay for it. Even if it´s just "a penny". Some ten years ago the company where I worked gave all the employees a very nice chef´s knife as a christmas present.. But we all had to pay 1 SEK ( about 10c..) for our christmas "gift"! :eek: :D

    Can anyone identify the maker of this knife?
    I think it says 51604 at the bottom of the blade.
