I just got my returned knife in the mail.  I would like to say thank you.
 I have NEVER had a company been so helpful with their product.  While I did not expect a new knife (I would have been happy with my old one), you sent a replacement.
 To say I am speechless, is an understatement.  Thank you very, VERY much.
 In my opinion, you have a very excellent product in any metric you wish to use......quality, craftsmanship, customer service, warranty.
Thank you again.
Deepest appreciation,

Mr. Paolantonio,
In return, I also hope this finds you well and your family also. I received my repaired knife in the mail today.
I am very pleased that it is in such beautiful condition and I will treasure it always. As much as I am pleased with the knife, I am even more pleased to have made your acquaintance.  It is very heartening to find that you and your family have maintained the integrity and customer service that you have rendered.  Thank you and I wish you continued success in all you do.

Why purchase the Colonial Knife brand? The Collectible rating for a Colonial Knife brand is very good along with being a knife that is made for being used everyday, the primary purpose of a knife is to cut, crappy steel or exotic, makes no difference if not properly hardened. At Colonial Knife, we are methodical about blade hardness, our grandfathers understood the importance of hardening steel and how to achieve the proper Rockwell hardness, the measuring of the blade strength through hardening of the steel. Our standards require Colonial Knife to achieve 58-60 C hardness, over 60 C and the cutting edge is prone to chipping, under 58 C, and the blade won't hold it's edge. A proper blade Rockwell Hardness ensures the customer is receiving the very best in their knife.
