Nice little Colonial

Picked up this little jewel and I love the scales. Very easy to carry. Great walk and talk...just a really nice little knife. Tell me what you think.

Nice looking handles, are they celluloid?

Yes I believe they are. If not celluloid a material similar.

doglegg sent me this nice little 2 3/4" Colonial stockman as part of the POS exchange. I cleaned it up and sharpened it and am using it as a EDC now, There is a nick in the master blade, and the tip of the sheepsfoot isn't the best, but I intend to used it and those problems will go away with the next couple of sharpenings.

Colonial made the Ranger line of knives. It was one of their brands.
