Roy Rogers Pocket Knife

Roy Rogers Pocket Knife

by Mike Pitzer, 2018

This was another one of those cool birthday gifts I got as a kid. I, actually, think it was a promotional tchotchke sent to my Dad when he worked at Willey Sign Company in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. He gave me a lot of things in his lifetime; his penny collection, his high school graduation watch and his father’s retirement watch from Packard Motor Company. I still have ‘em all, except this knife, which I lost off our dock in the St. Clair River.
