What a coincidence...I just found this one yesterday laying in the dirt under a picnic table at the beach. Maybe I'll see if I can clean it up a bit...still seems pretty solid despite the rust. All 4 blades/tools opened, albeit with a bit of assistance from a pliers, so that's a good sign.

Well, it's far from "mint" but after soaking for a few hours in a vinegar bath and a few minutes brushing with steel wool, this Colonial Forest King can now be easily opened without the use of pliers. A few strokes over my Arkansas stone followed by a couple of passes on a leather strop and this little guy is all set and ready to be used (and hopefully not lost) at another picnic.
