I thought Forest Master was a shield used by Colonial.

Can anybody fill me in?

The "Forest-Master" logo belonged to Colonial.
That's definitely one of the Colonials with a different stamp.
You can find the Forest-Master's with 2 different jig patterns.
That's one I would run past Robert Paolantonio, Scott. He said that they did a LOT of
different "branding" for there customers.

I got an Anvil stockman with a "SHARP USA" stamp on it. He said it IS one of Colonials
"secondary" stamps.

I know the FOREST MASTER shield was part of the Colonial line up.

Scott, I'm operating strictly from memory here ( and that's dangerous at best) but I seem to recall a line of camping products that bore the "Palco" brand. I'm thinking of such items as cooking kits, canteens, eating utinsils and such. If I'm not totally out in left field (my second home) it would make sense that Palco would also market a scout knife and quite likely would have contracted it from a knife making company like Colonial.

Well, I win! I stumped the panel. I contacted both Paolantonio's I know (both grandkids of the founding fathers and still involved in the knife world) and neither could tell me anything about the stamping!

No, I just found this thread :wink:

Palco Worc. U.S.A. is a trademark used by the Worcester Pressed Aluminum Co. in Worcester Mass. They are known for making mess kits, canteens, outdoor equipment, etc. These items are still found today and fairly common, their items were made out of Aluminum.I am sure they had these knives made on contract for them as they sold items to companies that handled outdoor equipment, as well as producing official B&G scout items.

I don`t know if they are still in business or not ::shrug::

Now, what do I win Scott? ::hmm:: ::suspense::
