U.S.A. only on tang

Post by Gone2Three » Wed May 20, 2020 2:24 pm

Good morning friends, it's been a little while since I'd been looking at knives to buy. Was called back from furlough recently, plenty of hours available so getting some cash flow again.
Anyways.... the reason for this post is a question about a U.S.A. tang stamp on a blade of the knife. No other markings, looks like carbon blades older knife maybe. Just wanted to see if someone might know what maker used the stamp.
Appreciate it, hope y'all are doing well. Hoping to start back on adding some new knives to the stash ::super_happy::

Looks like Colonial.
A picture of the entire knife could confirm.

I agree with edge213 looks to be a Colonial product.
If I have seen further it is by standing on the shoulders of giants.

That isn't a "X" on the tang stamp with "IDEAL", it's the word "THE." The tang stamp reads, THE IDEAL - U.S.A.
