I would've replied sooner, but I was speechless. I am truly honored.
I've never tried to clean up an old knife. Would I just need some good polish and maybe a Dremel? Let me know, I probably have most of what I need somewhere in the garage.
Again, wow! Thanks a million, I don't know what else I can say.
When I need to clean up an old knife I start by washing it with dish soap and hot water using a toothbrush and cotton swabs to get in everywhere. Then I dry it out, use canned air if you have it. Soak and scrub it in WD40. Use a toothbrush and cotton swabs to get in everywhere. After that I clean all the WD40 off any way I can. Next I polish all the metal I can get at with Wright's silver polish. Flitz or Jeweler's rouge and even mild compound would work as well. I do have a buffer in my shop and I do use it but I've worked with bench grinders and buffers for 30 years. Safety becomes an issue when you use a buffer. I would stay away from a Dremel but that's just me.
I will clean it up before I send it to you.. I still need to find or fabricate a replacement bail for it anyways...

A Camillus & an Imperial.....
Oh, how I wish I still had my BSA knife but I think I lost it when I was about 15 years old at the OA Greagor Scout Camp in western Colorado.
I started in the Cub Scouts at age 8, and progressed on until I reached age 18 but only attained Star. I regret not completing things and passing to Life then Eagle Scout but the Boy Scout's motto "Be Prepared" has been my motto and has definitely helped shape who I am today, including my EDC.
"Now may the great scoutmaster of all scouts be with us until we meet again, and may we run the race, at a good scout's pace, up the trail that leads to thee. Be Prepared!"
I know if I looked all over I might find mine. I was Cub Scouts, Boy Scouts, Life and Order of the Arrow. My brother made Eagle so I was hoping to. worked the summer of junior to senior HS. did come back to be Junior Assist Scout Master for a while.
Poor photo, but I received this knife from my granddad. He was a scout leader when my dad and uncle were boys. I don't know any story behind it, but granddad has been gone for 28 years and I remember him having this knife long before that. It is an Imperial.
My actual knife I got in Boy Scouts around 1983
The Helle Gaupe, GT, and Harding are now official Boy Scout knives.
I'm an Eagle but I never had an official Scout knife while I was in. I was more of a Leatherman kid when I carried a multi-tool at all- a lot of the time i just carried a knife and relied on the troop tools or the multi-tools of the others (much to my retrospective chagrin).
Victorinox did make its way into my pack pretty regularly though, including a Pioneer. I had a demo knife too but I don't remember ever packing it- Vic and Leatherman were just so much better tools.

I picked this up at a garage sale last year & have been slowly cleaning it up.

this is the same one I used to have. Our troop sold stuff that came in a white suitcase like box (Tom Watts?) and if you sold enough you got one of these knives. I used to have two - have neither one now.
You can pick them up on eBay from time to time. It's a really nice blade, I have a regular bucklite that I have hunted with for years.
The one on the left belonged to my dad and I don't know if the one on the right is even a Boy Scout knife but growing up I always associated the two with one another. Which brings me to the question - is it a boy scout knife?
