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.
My dad passed away in 1984. I was given his pocket knives which consisted of two Case, one Schrade and two Colonial. Here are pics of the Colonial. At the time I just threw them into my night stand and just dug them out recently.
