My 9yo grandson is considering joining the Boy Scouts. If he does I want to get him his first pocket knife, but it's been many, MANY years since I was in Scouting. Initially I thought I might still have my old carbon steel BSA knife kicking around here somewhere. It would have been great to pass that down. But it seems to be long gone. Failing that, I was looking through current offerings and found something similar looking currently offered by Case (model 8055)
So my questions are (because things change and, as I mentioned, it's been a long time ):
When would you get him one? Initially? Before his first camp? When he asks?
Is a traditional BSA knife the "right" thing? I can't honestly recall ever using the can opener, screw driver, awl etc on my old BSA, just the blade. Case (and others) now make BSA knives without all the clap trap. Just 1-3 blades, varying by model. Or should (can?) I just get him a Spydie and be done with it?
Any thoughts or recommendations?
Any help will be apprecited.
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
