That's a new one on me MB.Maybe they were specially made for Charley Weaver;only I think he pronounced it Mount Idy. If you aren't familiar with Charley Weaver,look him up.Guess I'm dating myself again. :mrgreen:

That appears to be a McCoy knife made in Mt. Ida Arkansas. Look up the Real McCoy pocket knife on google. They also make whet stones and other abrasives because the factory borders Hot Springs. This area is where the soft and hard Arkansas whet stones come from.

Welcome. There are a lot of them around arkansas and missouri. They look ok in quality, but i never bought one because they are $50 + for the pattern i like and i can get a good case for that. However i am broadening my horizons so i may buy one! do you like yours?

It would be interesting if someone in the Arkansas area could visit Mt. Ida and check out the McCoy "knife factory" . The patent # on the blade of the knife in question belongs to Colonial and the knife strongly resembles Colonial's Ranger .

Hey MB ,
I've read all of their web info , but I can't find where they say that they manufacture knives . Of course the early Col. Coon knives also had the Colonial pat. #'s on their blades . ::shrug:: ... Just say'in ?? (All of the "Real McCoys" that I had my hands on 10 - 20 years ago just felt like Colonials)

I have at least one from the 70's (I think) with pat. # ' s . I will try to find it and post it tomorrow . On the website that chronicles his beginnings they state that he purchased his blade blanks from various sources .
