- Source: eBay
We have collected and sold a lot ofvintage knives and Boy Scout knives. Most have the BSA symbol on the handle. This is the first and only one we have ever found with the motto and it was made by the New York Knife Co. of Walden, N.Y. and this and the motto Hammer Brand are stamped on the cutting blade. What’s even rarer is the Patent number stamped on the leather awl blade. The knife has jigged bone handles, brass linings, nickel bolters and nickel motto shield. It is missing the hoop to hold it on a clip. The knife is 3.7 inches long and ½” thick and the cutting blade is approx. 2 1/2 inches long. It is in very good condition, used but in great shape. This is the rarest BSA knife we have ever found and unusual in other aspects.Thank you for viewing this auction. The winning bidder pays shipping and handling. Return shipping paid by the buyer.
