CKC-M735

Updated version of the classic Paratrooper switchblade, the Colonial Knife Company M724 is definately a knife worth having. Unlike its predecessor, the M724 features a coil spring opening mechanism, so it will open reliably at any angle. The M724 retaines the classic sliding safety and lanyard loop for attachment to duty equipment.

Each knife incorporates a folding line-cutter blade designed to sever webbing or parachute risers during an emergency situation. The hook design of this blade prevents cutting injuries when webbing or clothing needs to be cut next to skin.

Colonial Knife Company M724 Paratrooper Automatic Rescue KnifeThe M724 features polymer handle slabs that make this knife light weight and high traction.

Awfully good for the money 10/24/2015
By Alan K Church
I have two of these, orange and olive drab, the clips.

The bad first (1) The safety button on these is too small me to use with heavy winter gloves, and (2) The bolt which serves as a blade pivot will loosen with extensive use.

The good

(1) For me, it's a true pocket knife. Size is reasonable, corners round, EDC comfort is awfully good. Weight is minimal-no metal lines.
(2) Reliability, and I've had the orange one 2 1/2 years or so, is very good.
(3) Edgeholding is quite decent. 440 stainless, and I assume that's 440A is no premium steel, but it's good enough. The manual sheepsfoot blade has survived a ton of cardboard with floral dirt, coppered staples, etc.
(4) Action is fast, and seems as fast as new.
(5) The plastic handles are comfy to the touch in cold weather.
(6) Colonial is a good company to answer questions on their toll free line.
(7) Mechanically very simple-pretty much a variant of "The Black Knife" which influenced most modern switchblade mechanics.
