I second that question, but mostly just the Scout vs Oiled. I'm guessing it's the old vs new tech response? More protection out of the Scout. More critical to get the Scout to break in on the proper lines to avoid permanent crease in the wrong spots? (had a pair of Redwing steel toes for chainsawing that did that, lost them somewhere years ago though )
