Traditionally, Scouts in Scandinavia use knives with guards, often in snap style sheaths. These are cataloged as Scout knives, but the blade shape seems more suited to the dedicated hunter. They all have carbon steel blades, about .120" thick, stacked leather handles with aluminum guards and pommels. The tangs run the full length of the handle, and are visible at the pommel. This is the largest of the three. The blade is about 5 7/8" long and the handle has 4 7/8" between guard and pommel. The grip is fairly small in diameter, so it's still suitable for average sized hands. While the use of aluminum keeps the weight down to just over 4 1/2 ounces, much of the weight is in the blade. It's suitable for light chopping and general camp chores, as well as butchering large game. The knife and sheath weigh about 6 3/4 ounces.
