Penknives may have formed as much part of the scouting experience as badges and campfires, but according to advice from the Scout Association they must no longer be brought on camping trips, except when there is a “specific” need.Brits do love their stabbings, but this is crazy talk. Safety is drilled into the heads of Boy Scouts when it comes to pocket knives to almost absurd levels. Boy Scouts aren't interested in knife fights, all they want to do is pointlessly whittle twigs and branches. Just like me when I was 10 or 11. Or like you. There comes a time when we need to trust our sons, and if we're concerned that Boy Scouts will become homicidal maniacs during a troop campout we have much bigger problems.
So when was the last knife-wielding Boy Scout arrested for murder during a campout? Like never ago?
