Looks like it could use some mineral oil. That's a classic--enjoy it!

Do you have any photos of the tang stamp(s)? I'm going to guess Imperial.

Casey,

We used to play a version of Mumblety-peg for hours with our Boy Scout knives. We used the awl blade and the knife seemed perfectly balanced for that game. Your knife brings back a lot of wonderful memories.

Mumblety-peg - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

We didn't play either of the Mumblety-peg games above. We played safer versions. We faced each other, feet together. We tossed a coin to see who go first. The first player threw the knife less than 12 inches away from the foot of the opposite player. The object was to stick it in teh ground the furthest away but no more than 12 inches. More than 12 inches didn't count. If it stuck in the ground less than 12 inches away, he had to move his foot next to the knife, and he had to keep both feet spread apart. Then the other player did the same. The winner was the person that stuck the knife far enough away so that the other player could not stretch his foot to reach it.

Another game was to toss the knife in various ways to get it to stick in the ground. For example, we would flip it underhand to loop the knife before it stuck, we would rest the point on our bended knee and flip it off to stick into the ground, etc. The first person to complete the different knife tricks was the winner.

Another game was cat's cradle played with just a piece of string.


Cat's cradle instructions with step by step pictures ifyoulovetoread.com -- the site for BLOW OUT THE MOON

Life was simpler then. All we needed was a knife and a lawn, or just a piece of string to entertain ourselves.
