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.

Hey, that's pretty neat. I don't think I've seen that stamp before.
Nice little stockman.

Brian, you have an amazing collection of Colonials. Probably the best I've seen, outside of Bonfire Bobs book. Keep on showing them.

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.

The Sportsman Barlows and the Forrestmasters are going into display cases at some point. The same as I did with these Slim Jims and Heavy Duty Barlows.

I purchases all of the display cards at separately and all of them are dated 1977 except the the Slim Jims. They have no date on the card. Can anyone date these Slim Jims?
