Kamp-King Pocket Knife

This is my son Scotty’s Kamp-King scout style 4 blade pocket knife from yesterday’s post about Kids and Knives.

Kamp-King Pocket Knife – 35+ years old and still ticking. My son recently took over payments on this baby.

  1. Nice little knife for your son. I remember getting my first pocket knife. I was about 7. Got it for Christmas. It was one of those cub scout style pocket knives with the BSA logo on it. Loved that thing. But like every kid has to learn the hard way, I soon had a nice gash in my palm and learned to respect my knife :)
