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 smallest, with a blade length of about 3 5/8". The handle has only about 3" between the guard and pommel, so it's suited for children or smaller ladies. The knife and sheath weigh about 3 3/4 ounces.
