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.

I went back and scrolled through the entire thread and discovered that the Scout type knife that 313 Mike gave me a few years ago is the only Colonial I've posted in this thread.

I also have a Colonial #2644 Campers Combo.

and a Colonial ~ Old Cutler Jack that's part of my small collection of medium jacks.

Hi garddogg. That is a hard working knife right there. I have one too. The model # 933.

I bought mine cheap because the top of the main blade was broken off. I re shaped it into what you see here and its an incredibly useful knife that cost me $3. It has built up quite a patina.

Here are a couple interesting Swiss Masters. The 4 blade model is an older one with the first hot stamp shield and cross Colonial used on their Swiss Masters. Victorinox felt it was too similar to their logo and they asked Colonial to change it. So to avoid legal problems Colonial changed to the cross with two lines.


I have been looking for one of Colonials 1 blade florist model Swiss Masters for years but I didn't know there was a 2 blade Swiss Master. So finding it was a fun surprise!

The old Swiss Master.

Here you can see both the old and new cross.

I also got the knives I was missing for my Old Cutler collectors edition box. This Old Cutler Barlow is so nice and feels heavy duty. I want a few more of these. :D
