The Need

Similar to my first request, please take a look at this and the other postings I have similar to this one and share with me what you know about it. My goal is to use the information you provide to properly market and sell these knives to get a reasonable sale price while letting the buyer enjoy the full value of the piece.

Colonial Executive – What I Think I Know

This is what I believe to be true so far about this knife:

  • Obverse tang stamp: “COLONIAL” over “PROV. USA” (which is obscured by bolster)
  • I do not know much else!

What I want to Know

Based on the bullet info above and judging the best you can from the photos, I would like to know the following:

  • Estimate year of knife manufacture?
  • Is there a model number?
  • Should I clean & polish it or leave it as is?
  • What, in your opinion, is the value of the knife?
  • What, in your opinion, is a good sale price?

Please feel free to ask me questions, request additional photos, or whatever in order to assist you in your evaluations. Please also feel free to correct my understandings with additional facts, as I want the best info I can get to support the sale.

Thank you for your comments and assistance – it is greatly appreciated!

These date from the mid 1970s.  They were part of the Swiss Master Series.  They were often sold sold in clam-packs or off cards.  I think they went for around $2.   They aren't that rare.  The steel used for the blade is 420.  I see them go on Ebay for $5-$10 in the shape yours is in.

Oh Awesome Tobias! This is good info...I very much appreciate your feedback. Thank you!
