Even in less than good condition how can you not love this vintage Colonial knife?

Robert Paolantonio (grandson of founding father Frederick) dates this knife to the early 40’s, possibly earlier (in a reply to a post and picture I made on AllAboutPocketKnives.com)  making this knife prit near 70 years old!

In this post http://www.allaboutpocketknives.com/knife_forum/viewtopic.php?f=87&t=32528&start=240  Robert (aka Bonfire Bob) also stated that the bolsters are nickel silver and solid pin construction!  What a treat it is to learn from blood descendent that also worked at the factory and began his own cutlery firm.
