It was a marvelous day for me as I received a package from Steve Paolantonio, Pres of Colonial Knife Corp.

Included was some vintage graphics....check these pics out!

Great score Scott!
I have one of the small Ranger knives, a mini peanut style jacknife I think, but I didn't know they made a Barlow in that line, that looks like one to keep my eyes open for! Interesting that mine isn't stamped Colonial, just RANGER PROV USA. That is one of the things I've noticed about Colonial is that they have alot of different tang stampings, and some of their knives don't have any stampings other than Made in USA or just USA....
Great graphics, that was mighty generous of him to send them to you...Hopefully when the book eventually comes out some of those graphics and others like it will be included!
Mike

These are my two nicest Colonial knives, both brand new. The fish knife photo was downloaded off of the e-bay auction that I bought it off of - still not sure if I am even going to open the blister package. The reverse dog leg jack was new without packaging when I bought it at a pawn shop. Looking forward to the book, I like 'working class" knives.

Knive O.H.!! I'd leave it in the blister pack.

The new Colonial barlow I just purchased will probably never see any carry time......

Here's a clearer shot of the stag handles on this Colonial Old Cutler by R.A.P. Knife

Nice one Scott. Here is the only Colonial I have in my collection. Not sure what the vintage is but it looks like it was used and carried, note the pits in the blades. The handle scales are tight and in good shape, just scratched up a little.

This is the Colonial Old Cutler Texas Jack I received yesterday. In examining this knife I would put it in the same class as an Imperial-Frontier or Schrade Old Timer; solid, well fitted Delrin handles with substantial blades and brass liners. Top (I take it the USMC uses the same nickname for a 1SG that the Army uses) your knife has an additional hawkbill blade that the standard electrician model (like mine) lacks - it must be Colonial's "Deluxe" Electrician model.

Here is my smallest Colonial, just a little sliver of a knife. I like the fact that the tang stamping is horizontal along the tang so it can fit on the tiny little blade, kinda unique. Too bad it doesn't show up all that well on the pic, but I think ya get the idea.

Great stuff Scott! Your blog is a cool place to visit, I appreciate and share your passion for the steel! That knife/multi-tool looks like quite the beast, and I've never seen the stone with the sheath before, great Colonial collectables Scott, way to go!

Scott, more cool Colonial stuff - keep it coming!

Here is my latest, put a quickie picture of it on the general thread up top, but needed to put a better picture here in the Colonial thread as well; my NOS Colonial Old Cutler 3-3/8" smooth Delrin handled, jack knife from an e-bay auction last week. It came in a worn, red, two piece box with instructions and a warranty number - guessing it to be from the 1970's or 1980's.
