I think the real question is of what purpose or use is the sheath knife?
Years ago I used a sheath knife also, but would not think of carrying one
anymore, the folding knives are much lighter and are as strong as any sheath
knife that I ever owned, plus they are much safer to carry.
I don't believe that the Scout catalog has sheath knives any longer, but the
thing that used to get me was all the notices in the council camping and
summer camp guides that sheath knives were strictly prohibited in Scouting,
and the kids could come up to you and point out that sheath knives were in
the offical BSA supply catalogs as an item that could be bought from BSA.
