Anyone know anything about the Colonial Knife Company:

The have a lockback that looks exactly like a schrade LB7 and apparently it's made in the US.

There was an article about Colonial in a recent issue of BLADE magazine.

Do you recall anything from the article? I can't seem to find out if they are actually made in the US or imported ala Taylor brands.

All made in China, the only ones made in the US are the ribbed plastic handled autos.

I picked up one of the lockbacks, not a bad knife at all, it's all stainless steel construction and
is a lot more scratch and tarnish resistant that brass or NS knives.

Check out my post here :

I customized one of these and it's pretty darn sweet. These are great lockbacks and make a excellent canvas for customizing.

I've got this one that is stamped Colonial Stainless USA,on the main clip blade,and has patent 2,817,996 on the spey blade,no marking on, sheepsfoot blade. It's a three blade stockman pattern, 3 7/8 in. closed.with an anvil shield. The handles do appear to be some type of molded, plastic or delrin,and the backsprings and liners seem to be carbon steel,cause they have some light rust. I don't know the year of mfg. ????????? Most of the anvil shield knives similar to this one,on ebay read Anvil-Prov.USA _________any more information, on this knife,would be greatly appreciated____not trying to hy-jack your thread Snorkel,just trying to add some info________Monk ::tu::

introduced into the Colonial line of products during the 1970's the Anvil brand series was desgined by the students at the Rhode Island School of Design. there were the standard three size, small med. and large all three blades.
The Anvil sereis was manufactured until the the year 2000.

Welcome to the forum Steve if no one hasn't already do so.I have quite a few Colonial brand knives including a lot of early ones.My first switchblade was a green scaled Colonial fishtail that I promptly broke the spring on and repaired it with a piece of a large hairpin I got from my grandmother(I was about 12).

Although most of the early knives I have are of excellent quality I must tell you about one I acquired some time back that was a bit less.It apparently was a giveaway and in my opinion not a good choice as one.
It came in a small leather pouch and the scales were ink stamped,"Compliments of Colonial Knife Company".The tang stamp stamp had been ground off and the knife was finished VERY poorly.I am enclosing a picture of it.

Anyway welcome to the forum and looking forward to seeing some of your posts.

I understand Steve.Actually it doesn't have a very good edge at all but I don't consider it a problem.More of a curiosity than anything else.My current passion is for unusual knives and this one fit the bill.
Happy Holidays to you as well.

I appreciate the offer Steve but I like it the way it is.I had a similar experience several years ago.

My brother-in-law got me a Franklin Mint knife for Christmas.It was marked as being a tribute to the 1957 Chevrolet and had a pic of one in the scale and the bolsters were shaped to look like bumper ends.Only problem was the blade was stamped with an image and lettering of a 1953 Corvette;a knife they had yet to introduce.

I sent a letter to the company informing them of the error and suggesting they check their inventory for possible other errors.Several weeks later I got a note from the company president thanking me and offering to replace the knife.I told him that I would just as soon keep it as it was a one-of-a-kind piece.A week later I get a correct one in the mail thanking me for my effort.Now I have one to compare it with.

Unusual items like this are what I mostly collect now.I've been collecting knives since I was 10 years old(I'll be 67 in another 6 weeks)and as a result have a few(thousand).Still enjoy looking for the unusual one though.
