The adults of the troop that I work with are now going through the
"Sheath Knife" discussion. We currently ban the knives but
some of the adults would like to bring them back. The only mention
I've found is in "Guide to Safe Scouting", 1993 p25 which states
"Avoid large sheath knives. They are heavy and awkwart to carry and
unnecessary for most camp chores except for cleaning fish."
I'm interested in hearing opinions, horror stories and even facts (smile)
concerning use of these knives.
IMHO if the size of the knive is limited these items revert to be like any other
moderately dangerous tool and the scouts seem to love them.
