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.
