WELCOME HOME !

This discussion is all about the knives bearing the Colt brand.  Steve Koontz was instrumental at bring the Colt name to knives made at SMKW.  And while the bulk of the Colt knives are made in China (and some fixed blades inPakistan) Koonts also negotiated a contract with W.R. Case & Sons to have series of dual tang stamp Case/Colt knives for the Made in the USA crowd!

 So let's see some Colt knives regardless of where they are made.

I'll start off with this bad boy:  A Colt Buckshot Bone Congress.

CT479

·440A stainless steel blades with reverse frosted master blade embellishments

·Buckshot Bone handle

·Brass pins and liners

·Nickel silver "rampant colt" shield and fancy bolsters

·3-3/4" closed pocket knife

Made in China.

Truly an exceptional build and well worth the $15-$20 you'll pay for it! My pictures don't do it justice.

I do think we are going to see them split into rr and marbles.  I believe smkw paid for the tooling and it would be in thier best interest to continue to use it.  It also tells us if colt makes the decision to sell knives again they will either have to partner as in the case/colts or they are going to have to retool.  It might be interesting if they begin to partner.  How about a schatt/colt or a colonial/colt?

A Colonial/Colt would be very interesting to me.

I think it would be interesting if they did a series where they partnered with different companies for different  patterns

I'm thinking more about the Colt Knives that were made in the SMKW factories in Pakistan and China. For instance the old Colt Marlin spike knife is now a Marbles Marlin Spike knife. Several of the other Colt Knives that came from China had almost identical knives in the Rough Rider line.

I could easily see the Colt Tactical Knives being moved to a different house brand, especially as they seem to be adding tactical knives to Rough Rider and the Combat Ready line could use a shot in the arm.

As for Colt USA collaboration. I'd like to see Colt Camillus.
That would be cool.
