Now we have a Colonial thread,Show'em

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.

Scott, do you have to open the near blade first in order to reach the nail nick on the back blade? ::hmm::

I stumbled across a nice collection of knives a few weeks ago and found a pristine Colonial from somewhere in the 80s. I have a few other Colonial knives, but not one as long as this gem!

Let me know what you think!
