Well, we don't have much experience with sheath knives because they have
been banned in our troop for as long as I have been involved with it. You
have to have limits on this thing. If you don't, many of the kids will
be bringing in 12" razor-sharp "Rambo" knives and playing "first blood"
tag. On one WEBELO, parent/son camp-out my son was using a 3 1/2" pocket
knife to do some whittling and came running back covered in blood. He had
managed to slice himself on the leg, hand and arm, all in one sitting.
