Colonial knife company?

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.

Only got one colonial,it's a large stockman scrimshaw edition , has a patent on sort blade? It's a well made knife,I've no clue to it's age, late 80's early 90's? It had badly chrome plated bolsters and was flacky so I removed it and polished and have them a brushed Finnish to match the blades, really like this knife,I went on a search for history and if course I ended up on AAPK :wink: you guys are awesome ::tu::
