17. The Roy Rogers Knife

Colonial made some fun western knives in the 1950s. One of them is the Roy Rogers knife.Its a model #826  with 2 blades. A main knife blade and a second blade that is a bottle opener and screwdriver. There is a clear front with a picture inside of Roy Rogers on Trigger. It says Roy Rogers and Trigger. The back is black plastic.

Below is  a picture of my Roy Rogers knife.
