  1. I’ve had my No. 5 foxfire knife for most of 2020. It is by far my most favorite knife ever. It’s just the size to easily carry in my pocket yet large enough to hold firmly. Excellent craftsmanship and keeps a sharp edge, just as my wife!

  2. I received a No. 5 knife 9 years ago from my wife and the older it gets, the better it feels. It’s well balanced with a robust closing “click”. I’ve since given them to our sons as well as friends.
    My father always carried a pocket knife: like father, like son.

  3. OUTSTANDING QUALITY AND SERVICE!! I ordered this as a Christmas Present because it looked so good on line. Let me tell you it is better in person. Beautiful quality and craftsmanship all around. Had initials and the year put on the knife. Yes, it does seem to cost a lot until you actually hold it in your hand. It will be an heirloom for years beyond when I am gone and my son in law will appreciate it. BUY ONE NOW


  4. I’ve owned, and given as gifts, several of the Colonel’s knives over the past decade or two. Recently, I was returning from a trip with a Foxfire knife in my checked luggage. Someone must have decided the Colonel’s #5, even needing sharpening, was too good to pass up. I ordered a new one when I realized my wife couldn’t find it either. I had a new one in a day and half!- Best designed pocket knives I’ve ever carried.

  5. I purchased this knife & leather sheath to give to my feller for his 50th birthday. I received them today & they’re beautiful, high-quality items. I’m so excited to gift them to him next week. I know he’ll find them both useful & meaningful – a gift he’ll use, but treasure & perhaps hand down to one of his sons.

  6. I was gifted a No. 5 Foxfire Knife 12 years ago with my initials monogram . The #5 holds a edge like no other
    It’s still my daily carry and my overall favorite.
    Which would include my custom Benchmade bone folder.
    The #5 has seen some rough work and the blade could use a knifesmith’s polish job, but I still carry it proudly.
    The gifter is no longer with us so it is all the more meaningful.


  7. Just got my #5 back from the Col. I’ve been caring this knife now for 20 years and my name was coming off the handle no fault of the Col. But more my pocket and steady use.With in 1 week I received my knife back looking like it did 20 years ago.when I offered to pay they told me no just part of service.


  8. I have owned a few of these fabulous knives since 2000 and various other Colonel Littleton products. I love this company because they produce the finest quality products in their class! The guarantee and customer service is superb and continually fosters my loyalty to the company. I use the knife and other products daily and they occasionally take a bit of abuse. Colonel Littleton has always taken fabulous care of me in every way.

    You simply cannot find a better quality knife of these types or a company that stands behind their products as Colonel Littleton does.

    It is a daily satisfaction to be using their products.

  9. I purchased this knife for my nephew’s birthday and I can’t wait to see his face when he opens it! The knife is such a high quality product and the engraving makes it stand out even more! Also, the staff at the store were all so friendly and helpful. It is obvious they strive to provide exceptional service to their customers.


  10. I own quite a few of Colonels knives.some of the best knives I # 5 one of the pins came loose and instead of trying to repair my knife they just sent me a new one.can’t get better than that for a guarantee


  11. I own several of the Col.’s knives but the No. 5 is my favorite. This is a great company to do business with and they STAND behind their products.


  12. I ordered this knife for my father’s 90th birthday. My ordered was handled with great care and prompt processing. There were several e-mails from the staff re the monogramming I had requested; and it was perfect when I received it. It is beautiful…I know my dad will love it! Y’all did a stellar job!


  13. I loved this knife and got many friends envious! Th only problem I had was the bone chipped easily and I don’t use the knife any more as it is missing part of the bone. I never dropped it, so I am not sure how it happened. I liked the knife so much, we bought one as a gift for my brother-in-law. He loves his and carries it with him every day.


  14. For 30 years, since he was 10, I have been giving what we have come to call “collection knives” to my son. They have ranged from the petite to a huge combat knife, some new, some bought in antique stores or pawn shops. Anywhere I find them during the year. Can’t wait until this Christmas for him to open this classic. I bet it won’t be just “in the collection,” I bet he’ll use it every day!

  15. Just like an extra hand.
    You name it and this knife can do it. Cut, slice, open and much more. Mine goes with me both inside and outside every day. Slice an apple, cut twine on a bale of hay, dig out a splinter and cut open just about anything. All three of my grown boys have one. Well done indeed Col. Littleton.

Our Story

Our Warranty
Our Warranty

We are committed to producing quality, handcrafted products that showcase our time-honored standards of excellence and deep respect for the Americana tradition. Col. Littleton products go through rigorous testing and numerous quality inspections before being shipped to our customers. Should you receive a Col. Littleton product that is defective in materials or workmanship, you can count on us to make it right. Our guarantee is limited to the cost of the product itself. It also does not cover normal wear and tear. We feel if you just plain “wore it out,” you got your money’s worth. Also, we cannot be responsible for an item which has suffered through alteration, damage due to improper cleaning, improper use, mishandling or accident. If we made a mistake in personalizing your product or if the product is defective in materials or workmanship, of course we’ll replace it. Otherwise, personalized products are not returnable.

Our Leather

Leather is a passion for me. There are more kinds of leather and leather processing out there than you can shake a stick at. You can mold leather into just about any shape or form. You can make every hide look just alike. You can dye it green, blue or even pink. You can apply a finish, coat it, spray it or make it look slick and shiny. That’s not what we’re about at Col. Littleton. To me the beauty is in the naturalness of the leather. People always comment to me about the special “feel” of our leather and how it becomes even more beautiful after it has some wear on it. It’s all about our leather process. When you buy Col. Littleton leather goods, you’re buying, for the most part, full-grain American vegetable-tanned steer hide that has received a minimum of alteration. We don’t apply a finish to hide character markings. The way I see it, every marking tells a story and covering them robs the piece of its life and character.

I see a real resurgence in the country today for products made in America. Our focus is to design and create products that speak to the time-honored traditions that have made this country great such as handmade craftsmanship, authentic rich leathers and quality workmanship. There’s a nostalgic feel about the products we make . . . most of them could have been made 100 years ago and many are made using turn-of-the-20th-century methodology and machinery. Our products are true Americana; forged as our forefathers intended by people who care and take pride in making a beautiful product.
