I bought this old Tanto knife in 1995, a few months before enlisting, and have had it in my Bug Out Bag for the past few years. Despite saying Colt on the side, I'm sure Colt didn't make it, and if I remember correctly, United Cutlery made it for them. I know it was made in the USA, but that's as far as I remember. The model # on the blade is CT10. Can anyone tell me anything about this knife? Did they make it for a while? Is it worth anything?
That is what is known as a "fantasy piece"; the only value it has is to the owner. I have a hunting style one (gift), I place more value on my mag spring than it. If you like it; enjoy it -that's what it's all about.

I was looking on eBay to see if any were being listed, and they are selling for around $10 less than I paid in 95. Since its clearly not a collectible, I'll put it back in the BOB. FWIW, it really is a nice knife.
