Default Imperial Boy Scout Camping Knife/Fork Set w/Pics

I was at an estate sale and the following Imperial BSA Set minus the spoon was marked $1 so I couldn't resist. I also picked up the Letherman for $1.















Thanks for letting me share.

wow! These sets have been around for some time then.

Can you guys tell me if the spoon has any markings on it. i.e.
BSA, Imperial etc...?

I want to try and find one.

Thanks..

I have a set that I found in 1951 on the ocean side of Point Loma, SanDiego. At that time there were still gun emplacements on the ocean side. I don't think it is the same brand as yours, but it looks the same.

Here's my set from 1955. It's made by Shrade. I also have my cook set and toiletries kit.

I like the leather pouch too. They had already switched to the plastic when I got mine.
