Today I noticed for sale on ebay a new square knot.  Is this an official knot?

@eghiglie There's as many "Really??" knots on eBay as there are real ones. Some knots have been discontinued and some aren't as common. I still see some that are new to me from time to time. What did the knot you saw look like?

Very nice knot, Tahawk...can I go ahead and sew one on my uniform? 

 

PS.  I failed to ask what I need to do it earn it.   The carrick bend is not a knot to be taken lightly.

Silver Squirrel Award, Troop 923 Chicago Area Council

Information provided by Troop 923, Chicago Area Council.

Worn by: Male and Female Scouters

Emblem Description:

The Silver Squirrel Award features a double carrick bend ("figure 8 knot") in the Troop's colors of gold and green. These are the two colors found on the necklace ribbon of the award.

Background/Justification:

The Silver Squirrel Award was developed to recognize Scouters in a Chicago Boy Scout Troop who had given of their time and effort over the years, providing the support needed to keep troop program functioning smoothly. Since these Scouters had devoted all their efforts at the unit level rather than the district or council level, there was little chance that they would ever be nominated for the District Award of Merit, or the Silver Beaver. The troop committee felt that these individuals should be recognized in a manner consistent with recognition at higher levels, and decided to institute the Silver Squirrel Award. The Silver Squirrel was first awarded in 2005.

The Silver Squirrel Award is being made available to any unit that wishes to recognize their own Scouters in a manner consistent with the history of the award. It has been awarded to Scouters in Cub Scout Packs, Boy Scout Troops, Venturing Crews, and Sea Scout Ships. The Silver Squirrel has been awarded by camp staff to Camp Rangers as well. Located here is a copy of the Silver Squirrel Award application and instructions on where to send it to.

There are so many discontinued knots or custom/spoof knots out there.  I collect them, you'd be surprised the variety that are out there.
