  16. 100% First try.

  17. I was Always told to hand someone a knife when holding the Blade so you don’t stab the person you are handing it to so I got the Second one wrong

    • With a sheath knife or anything where you can’t fold in the blade that’s true, but when passing a pocket knife you always want to close the blade first.

    I got 100 %! I’m so happy!!!!!!

  26. 100%! I’ve never whittled before! I’m a lion!

  27. 100% yes! whittling is so easy for me. the angle one was confusing.

  28. 88% wawawa

    • A 25 degree angle is waaay too steep for a good edge. Otherwise, no quibbles. Good quiz. And yes, you can pass a knife safely with an open blade. Knife safety is knife safety, whether it is an open folding knife or a big butcher knife or a locked Opinel. See you on the trail.

  29. I got 66%

  30. I figured I knew the answer, but I never close a knife with the palm of my hand. When your palms are big and the knife is small, fingers are easier to keep safe then the palm at the tip of your knife. Trust me, doesn’t feel good.

  31. Is there a way I can print it out and give it at the meeting for the boy’s to take

  32. I probably should not touch a knife ever again

  33. beep beep lettuce

  34. 88%. So, O.K.

  35. 88 percent. missed the one about the sharpening angle

    Pretty easy quiz. Although, in an emergency pretty sure you can use your life to pry things unless its the tiny multi knife thing.

    I was a cub scout but I had to quit because my mother and father had tons of things to do so…yeah!Anyways I don’t get how a dull knife is more dangerous than a sharp one.

    The only one I got wrong was the question about what angle you should sharpen your knife. I said 45 degrees.

  44. All of us scouts should have passed this with 100%. I did!

  45. 100%

  46. I love boys life. It is a great way to show how scouts is really made. I’ve learned so much from it and enjoyed the comics and seeing the scouts that of been awarded an honor Metal.

  47. So sad, this app would not let me share my 88% score!
