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.

to AAPK and there's a whole forum on knife repairs and restoration, if you're interested.
But beware, the knife collecting bug bites hard!
Pocket, fixed, machete, axe, it's all good!

It's always important to know what you don't know.

$2.50 for this unused Colonial Forest Master at the fleamarket last weekend. It is the 3 blade version, which I had not seen before. I have seen many 4 blade, and have a new unused one too, but never a 3 blade. Same thing without the awl.
