This blog is dedicated to Colonial Knives of Providence Rhode Island. The original Colonial Knife Co 1926 – 1998. I am a long time Colonial knife collector and I also enjoy the interesting history of the knives and the amazing Paolantonio family behind them. I will be posting pictures of the family, the factory and discussing some history of the company. One of my favorite hobby’s besides knife collecting is photography. So I will also be sharing pictures I have taken of my large Colonial knife collection. To me, each one is a little piece of history. I look forward to sharing them with you.
