When Colonial created its first pocket knife in 1926, they knew it would become an industry standard. Today, Colonial is proud to manufacture the highest quality in precision cutlery that can only come from nearly a century of knife making experience.
In 2001, some of the employees of the former Colonial Knife started Colonial Cutlery international (CCI) and began manufacturing the M-724 Switchblades and the J-316 for the military. This new interest in the Colonial brand led to additional customers such as the Boy Scouts of America, Girl Scouts of the U.S.A, Cooper Tools, Stanley Works, Ideal Industries, and the General Service Administration (G.S.A.).
In 2002, CCI registered the Colonial Knife brand as a division of Colonial Cutlery International, Inc. Today, Colonial Cutlery International, Inc. brand is the imported line of knives and tools while the U.S.A.- made products fall under the Colonial Knife brand.
Together, two great brands under one roof.
