Love my Camper II. Just got it a couple months ago through Amazon crazy inexpensive!

I pair it up with any Leatherman with scissors and I'm good to go. The nylon scales seem softer yet more resilient, as a willow weather's the storm. Seems like they aren't as brittle as cellidor and might get scratched or gouged rather than shatter if dropped onto concrete or a rock.

But honestly, for being a water dog he HATES being in water.  ??? :think: :facepalm:

As if carrying two large multitools wasn't enough, I camped out with my oldest last night.  My back, hips, ....... just aren't what they used to be.  I'm liking everything about Camping except the sleeping!!!   :facepalm:

You're making me feel lazy, Barry!  Now is the perfect time of year for desert camping!

Well, I guess it's time to look at the Camper's cousin Picnicker if sleeping is too much.

Thanks Vicman!  I've wanted one with those scales since seeing Folder's,  but they are hard to come by.  El C hooked me up with a gorgeous one!  This forum is a very special group of people!!

Congratulations, Barry!

The inlay Teepee logo is the most desirable Camper logo in my opinion. Earlier this year, I acquired a NOS mint in box Camper with the stamped logo. As of today's mail delivery, I am also the proud new owner of an inlay logo Camper...

I too love the camping scales, and bought a contemporary pair.

Are any models other than the camper and ranger "native" camping scale bearers?
All I know is that I don't know anything - but I can't prove it!

In the absence of someone replying who can speak more authoritatively, I thought your question deserved a reply. I have looked extensively but the Camper and Ranger are the only "Native" teepee logo scales as far as I know. If there are others, I would be very much surprised. I have seen posts explaining the various logos from inlay to foil stamped with comparison photos. In other words, there is variation among the teepee logos but the examples I have seen were all Campers and Rangers.

Cheers for that :tu:
I reckon they would look appropriate on any outdoors type knife, like explorers, swisschamps and the like.
I might have a go at carving a copy onto an 84mm nylon scale, if I ever get around to recreating a camper in that size.
