I have accumulated a few Canal Steet knives but up until now I haven't put any of mine to work. They have all been living in luxury in my safe. I picked this one up a couple of days before Christmas at the local knife shop and junk store. Since it didn't come with the box or paperwork and since I already had another one of this particular model stored away, I've decided to put this one to work as my new EDC. I have so far used it almost entirely to open Christmas presents, but it will get more of a workout as time goes by.

I'd be interested to hear from any others who have made a Canal Street one of their user knives.

Phil

Phil, thats a beautiful knife, really looks like a good user. 8)

I've been carrying this CS for a couple weeks, it takes a really nice edge and so far holds it well too, my only issue with it is the beef in the blade, there's not enough. ::shrug::
It will flex a little with some pressure, but its still a really nice knife. I hope your CS serves you well. ::tu::

Phil, let us know how it works out as an EDC. I'd heard that CS used some of the exact same stainless steel that USA Schrade called their Schrade+ steel. Those old LB-7's with the Schrade+ steel were great work knives. I liked their stainless steel Schrade+ blades better than any other makers stainless blades. That's a nice knife you have there. Bone stag handles?

Sorry for the delayed response Aimus. Yes, those are what CS calls Amber Stag Bone handles. I think they are really pretty and have focused much of my Canal Street collecting on knives with those handles. So far I've been carrying that knife for a bit over three months now and it has performed flawlessly. I didn't get the box or paperwork with that one, so I'm not positive of the steel used in the blades but I suspect they are the D2 tool steel. So far I have not needed to sharpen any of the four blades as they are holding a nice edge very well. If I had any complaint it would be that I do tend to prefer a bit smaller sized knife. I like the midsized congress that Boker puts out as far as size is concerned simply because it rides a bit better in the pocket, but I got to tell ya I"m really getting to like this one better every day.
Hey ::idea:: maybe CS will put out a mid sized congress someday. I'll sure grab some up if they do.

Phil you said "Hey maybe CS will put out a mid sized congress someday. I'll sure grab some up if they do."

I have the feeling that you will grab up most any Canal Street Amber Bone regardless of size... ::rotflol:: ::rotflol::
