The online community of knife collectors, A Knife Family Forged in Steel
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.
·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
