If you’re looking for an affordable USA-made pocket knife, look no further than the Colonel Coon Genuine Stag series. Each knife in this series costs between $30 and $50, and they were handmade right here in the USA.
The knives in this series each have genuine stag handles mounted on stainless steel frames and are accented by ringed nickel silver bolsters. The fit and finish on these knives is very good for the price. One of the greatest things about stag handles is that every knife is a little different. Being handmade, each knife will have the slightest of variations from other knives in the same pattern. That means your knife is truly and uniquely yours.
The stainless-steel blades are mirror polished, and the nail nick opening is smooth and easy. It comes with a pinned cast metal Colonel Coon shield which we think adds a fantastic touch to these knives.
Right now, this series is only available in the trapper pattern. Our sources tell us they are constantly adding new patterns to this series, so make sure you keep an eye on them to see if and when they add your favorite pattern to the lineup.
