Colonel Coon Question?

Postby Cutty » Tue Aug 14, 2012 11:52 am

Anybody know who made these for CC?

This picture was taken from an ebay listing, not my knife.
I have one that I am thinking about putting here in the trade thread.
Just curious about who made them before I decide wether or not to hold on to it?
Seems like I heard it was made by Queen?

Thanks Phil.
I've researched this knife here and Queen is what I found. I guess I will just go directly to Queen and try to get something concrete. ::tu::

OriginL Colonel Coons are always in demand. But after their demise a couple of owners and now Queen does make them.
