WW2 Colonial large survival knife – part of USA pilot’s survival kit. Huge 4-3/4″ blade, intact saw. Great overall condition, considering the age.
Extra-large WW2 era “Jumbo Jack” folder from the US Navy and Army Air Corps survival kits. This specimen was manufactured by COLONIAL KNIFE COMPANY in Providence, Rhode Island. These extra-large folders are hard to find in good condition these days, especially with the saw blade intact. This type is illustrated on page 188 of KNIVES OF THE UNITED STATES MILITARY WORLD WAR II book by Michael W Silvey – a well-established expert and the author of a number of books on the subject of the US military edged weapons (see book’s page scan attached).
This knife was purchased by a collector over 20 years ago who kept it locked up ever since; this knife is in great shape. Original sales invoice will be included with the knife and mailed to the new owner. The knife is about 6″ / 15.3 cm closed; large heavy-duty clip point blade is about 4-3/4″ /12 cm; it locks well with no play. Black plastic handle scales are in great overall condition with no cracks; one side has a small abrasion near the top. The saw blade is intact and very sharp still – better than average condition for the type. This big boy is not your typical pocket knife a bit over 6″ long even when closed and weighs about 13 oz / 360 grams. This old-timer is still in great shape overall – it is in 100% serviceable condition still; with proper it will last you another 75 years 😉
This original WW2 Colonial large survival knife has not been cleaned or tampered with in any way; it’s in 100% original “as is” condition. These are the actual photos. I have a few vintage Sheffield-made knives, as well as WW2 era British combat knives and bayonets, scarce American and German WW1 and WW2 fighting daggers and trench knives available for sale – please take a look in the store’s Militaria section.
