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.

Picked up this Ranger single blade with a liner lock the other day. It locks up tight and is really sharp.
First I have seen with that tang stamp. I have one that was an NRA knife; and it was mostly seen with Lakota (mostly known for Japanese-made knives) and Colonial (uncommon, but they exist). They must have mostly marketed these as an advertising/"Your Logo Here" type knife.
Yes I agree. It looks like it should have an ad on it

This pocket knife, just one out of a group that I bought, arrived very recently. While NOT a Colonial, per se, it is "related" to Colonial. It is a PROV CUT CO. - PROV. R.I. U.S.A., 2 blade, 2 3/4" closed, pocket knife. The blades needed minor cleaning. I took some pictures and here it is.

This arrived very recently in a group of pocket knives that I bought. This particular pocket knife was NOT the target of my purchase. It is a COLONIAL, single blade, 4 5/8" closed, single tang stamp, "melon tester" pocket knife. This is my first "melon tester" pocket knife. It needed no cleaning. I took some pictures and here it is.
