    Some may have been used post WWII by Boy Scout-type organizations (Germany had many), but without markings there is no official connection. Call it a novelty knife.

    Knives like these were and still are for sale in europe. Some of theme have the boyscouts emblem on the grip instead of the HJ emblem. Quality varies from excellent to utterly shabby. So I guess you could call them boyscout knives or camper's knives. Incidentally, nowadays boyscouts are no longer allowed to carry knives of any kind over here, not even small folders.
    A long time ago since I (openly) carried a 6 inch bowie as a boy scout leader ;-)

    Camping trips, yeah.
    Well, I suppose it's up to the indiviual troop leaders and where the campsite is located.
    If you're a boyscout troop in the middle of the woods and the leaders are not too peace and love inclined you might be allowed to carry a small folder. As long as you keep it hidden when in public. Nowadays it's all about public image and also liability ... If you let 12 year old's run around with sharp/pointed objects sooner or later you'll have to patch one up. People used to take it as granted, but nowadays you'd get sued by the parents and get thrown out of the troop.
    I remeber on summer camping trip in Luxemburg back in 1980. We sent the kids on a 3 day survival trip (mainly so we could dedicate our attention to the very cute Dutch teenage females who were staying at the camping site in the nearest village). Of course during a resupply mission one of the brats bought a "scout knife" in the local souvenir shop and subsequentely stabbed one of his fellow scouts in the hand during a brawl at the campfire the same evening. Fortunately a quick trip to the hospital and some stitches saved the situation with nothing more tragic than some bloodloss. The cutter had his knife confiscated (it stayed in the toolbox of my car for the next 10 years or so) and the cuttee gained a cool scar.

    In Europe the problem isn't the amount of knives ... the problem is that the some youngsters aren't sufficiently educated by their parents anymore. They don't get a "wack" around their ears anymore when things get out of hand ... even mother bear and mother dog teach their offspring how to behave themselves in their society. Some cultures are stuck in an era before the middle ages (they may even have never heard of that time!), keep their women "stupid" and think that only males must rule the world. Some day a serious clash will come ... but this wouldn't be the first time in history ... historians know this.

    sick

    Well, it's mostly about being "politically correct". Knives are evil and not even boyscouts should use them.
    Unless they're muslim boyscouts of course :-(

    About belgian politics: 1830 is a long time ago. If you openly speak out against the government now you'll end up in jail.
    But I guess everything is fine now that we have this italian socialist maffioso pedofile as prime minister ....
    It's even worse than having hussein as president !

    If you ever need someone to man a machinegun on some streetcorner barricade just give me a call.
