Colonial


Colonial Knife was incorporated in 1926 by three brothers; Antonio, Domenic, & Fredrick Paolantonio. It grew to become one of the largest pocket knife manufacturers in the US during the 1960s. The company shut down in 1998, but was back into production under the Colonial Cutlery International Corporation in 2001. Colonial Cutlery International, Inc. brand is the imported line of knives and tools while the U.S.A.- made products fall under the Colonial Knife brand.

No pocket knife collection is complete without a few examples of vintage pocket  cutlery made by this historic company.  Our members list some good ones for sale here on occasion.  Check out what we have for sale now & check back often if you don't find something you like.
