An Eagle Scout Coin Knife by Northwest Territorial Mint makes a great gift for someone achieving the rank of Eagle in scouting. The minted die-struck coin casing is durably designed, with a high-quality finish. The coin knife has a solid weight to it without being bulky, and the tools pull out easily without sticking or being too loosely hinged. The coin knife comes equipped with a small scissor, a file, and matching thumbnail-size knife blade. The blade is not sharp and would be better utilized as a piercing or extraction tool than an actual cutting blade. Though less than half an inch in length, the scissors managed to easily cut through a thick envelope on the first try. The two-sided file is the same shape as the knife blade, but twice as thick, to provide the needed rigidity for filing. The best thing about this tool is it's sleek construction, reminiscent of the hidden-compartment spy coins of the WWII era. If you're looking to purchase a practical, everyday pocket knife for camping and survival situations, you'd probably want something more like this. However, if you want a novel gift that fits comfortably in any pocket and provides a handy tool in a pinch, this Eagle Scout coin knife is for you.
