    For a total of $15 spent today at the local flea mrkt, I was able to pick up these two items. The USA made Military whistle was $5, and the Colonial lockback was $10.
    The knife has it's original factory edge, and seems totally unused. Although it has some minor scuffs, likely from handling and storage over the years, it's pretty much in new'ish condition :)

    Colonial knives in general are fairly common, but those lockback versions sure aren’t! Nice finds:thumbsup:

    I went to that thread and noticed I had already done a posting on it with a couple other Colonial knives I have. Pics of the other two are found on page two of that thread...

    So, it seems I'm drawn to the more uncommon Colonial knives :)
