The Maserin Scout is a classically styled pocket knife with a non-locking blade with a cutting edge under 7.6cm (3") long, making it legal to carry within the UK at the owner's discretion.


The D2 carbon steel blade is incredibly sharp with a half stop to help prevent accidental closure.


The handle is micarta which is an extremely tough material in a choice of either green, red, orange or blue. Please be aware that the blue version has scales which are very dark that almost appear as black or dark grey.


There is a lanyard hole too so you can customise your knife with a lanyard of your choice.

    Opinion transformed

    Posted by Alijami on 8th Jul 2019

    When I first reviewed the Maserin Scout I wasn't happy with a number of points and eventually moved the example on. However its price point in particular allowed me to give it a second chance. One feature in a modern folder I rate highly is a finger-safe ricasso at the half-stop and the Scout has that. Have had to give my Benchmade Propers a free pass there. The edge length is pushing the 3 cutting edge friendly carry limit and the finger-safe ricasso results in blade length in excess of 8cm, something I like to avoid. My solution was to reprofile the blade length to 76mm. I don't expect others to do that but I mention it because I and others have slightly disparaged D2 as more difficult to sharpen. I am pleased to report that my Lansky aluminium-oxide hones were not troubled by the D2. Would still prefer a more stainless steel, but hey, have warmed to D2 in the Maserin Scout. Fit and finish is excellent, the latest example exhibiting spot-on centering. A lanyard hole (without modification effort) and no pocket-clip suits my carry. Visually attractive micarta scales. At the price-point you can't go wrong.

    Excellent value!

    Posted by SalfordJim on 3rd Jun 2019

    This is a great option if you want a robust Sodbuster-style knife for general purpose use. The fit and finish is great (the blade-centering is just a hair off true, but no there's rubbing), and the edge is sharp and evenly ground. It's very comfortable in the hand, with your first finger sitting naturally just behind the 'kick' on the blade. The materials are good quality - D2 and G10, and the Torx screws suggest you might be able to disassemble the knife for maintenance. One thing to consider - although the Sodbuster style is elegant and ergonomic, the muddy G10 and the dark-ish stone-wash finish on the blade do not have the 'bling' factor that a highly-polished knife might have. That said, it's a quality product at a keen price... and you get the benefit of the legendary Heinnie Haynes customer service!. What a bargain!

    I very nice little knife!

    Posted by John on 6th May 2019

    I got my Maserin scout today, after ordering it from Heinnie yesterday, hows that for fast service! I am very pleased with the knife, fit and finish really good, feel in the hand= vergening sexy (yes I have a problem), it looks even better in real life than it did on the web site and the D2 steel blade is............. one of the best blade steels I have played with. I wanted to get my normal mirror finish on the edge, just because I like my blade edges shinny, not that it needed sharpening, as out of the box it was very sharp to start with. I have now got the edge sharp enough to shave with, tried it out on a couple of cardboard boxes and ade a few fire sticks. Then when look at the blade through a magnifying glass, where normally the edge would look smooth & shiny, the Scout edge was shiny but still had about half it very fine grind marks left from the factory and that's after work on some good quality oil stones. So I have no idea what the RCH might be, but the toughness of this steel is for me somewhat shocking, but in a good way. So if you want a really good looking pen/pocket knife, that has a REALLy good tough blade that with work will get you a razor sharp edge and keep it, then buy this one. I am very happy with it!

    D2 if that is what you need

    Posted by Alijami on 6th Mar 2019

    I'm finding this quite a difficult knife to review. Firstly for me all it has to be is my collection example of an Italian knife maker's art. Its a good blend of style and function. I particularly like the patterned green micarta scales. Note that they are smooth not textured. That surprised and slightly disappointed me. In terms of legal edge length this is right on the limit. In my opinion its overlarge for a gentleman's pocket knife but lacks the utility of a Manly Wasp for example. This is the sharpest out of the box knife I have ever had, of course to be expected for a high carbon steel. Fit and finish is excellent though I have seen better centering. I am unconvinced by the steel choice. For pocket knife duty I'd prefer to see corrosion resistance and easier sharpening. Perhaps there are tasks out there where D2 has merit. Only buy this knife if you can see that task. I'm clear, if I want style I'll carry my PK70. For utility my Manly Wasp. My new micarta scaled Proper sits in between. OK, the Scout is significantly better value than two of these but I can't see a place in my rotation for the Scout. In design terms I'd love to see an 80% sized version in a 12C27 class steel. That is something I would carry.

    Great take a on a "sodbuster" pattern

    Posted by Adam on 15th Feb 2019

    I really like these and already have a couple of a US based supplier. IMO, this is a lot of knife for £40 - D2 - Waffle micarta - Good build quality / blade centering / no wobbly bits etc - Also note the use of torx screws over traditional pins - but I haven't needed to remove or tighten anything, so cant comment further than that
