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.

Direct from Colonial on sale this month, no tax and free shipping. Liner lock, thick 440C blade, just a great working knife. I intended to throw it in my toolbox but I don't know if I'll be able to keep it out of my pocket. And an unexpected surprise... it's serialized!

Good score!

I sold off most of my Colonial collection around 3 years ago. After Bob P. passed away I sort of lost the "allure" of the Colonial brand. Something sparked me to start up again so here's a pic of my latest finds. More are on the way.

I just about got carpel tunnel scrolling through the entire thread to see what I had already posted. ::uc::

The ones posted below bring me up to date.
A couple of Anvils. I really like the handles on these.

I like the Anvils also. Nice shield and unique handles. I don't currently own one but I'm searching. I had one a few years back but sold it.
As always....should have kept it. ::undecided::

He is a large 3 blade stockman. My first impression at the Trade Days where I found it was, clean, excellent condition, sturdy and well made. It's just a beautiful ordinary knife and I couldn't pass it up. I just don't know yet the date etc.

Here is today's find at the bottom of a bunch of "junk" knives.A Colonial serpentine picture handle knife with a "bathing beauty"(sans bathing suit apparently;the picture is fading)photo.One of the front bolsters is missing and there was some rust on the blades that is cleaning up reasonably well and for $8 it was going home with me.
