Just received two Canal Street Canntilers in the mail. Wow, what great knives! I have been collecting knives since elementary school (50 years plus), and in the last ten years have been partial to Canoe patterns, and Whittlers for their difficulty in making. The Canal Street Cannitlers combine the two. At first, I thought the two back springs were the same width thru out, :(. But then, I looked close, and the two springs taper to 4mm on the main blade, from 5mm on the two small blades, :)). Excellent fit and finish. The main blade is a beast at 4mm, and the D2 steel shaves right out of the box. Now, the hard part is to start using one ( the Chestnut, probably), or to put them both away..... (PS: I am not connected with Canal Street, or the Droppoint Store, in any way; just a very happy customer), Scott

Scott,

Is there any way you can post a picture or two of those knives ? What was the handle material of the second knife ?

I am a big Canal Street fan. I've collected a few over the past couple of years and I am continually impressed with the overall quality and appearance of the knives Canal Street is turning out. I was reluctant to take one of my new Canal Streets and make a user knife out of it but I finally broke over and did so. I've been extremely pleased with it and glad I decided to put it to work. That D2 blade steel is awesome!

My advice is to put one of those beauties in your pocket and enjoy it to its fullest by making it your EDC.

Phil

Here is a picture of mine. I got this one a year ago or maybe two. It is in my EDC rotation. Now, if you want a beast of a canoe - try a gunboat!

Sure Phil, I will try to post some photos this weekend. The second knife is the Tortoise Shell (imitation, of course). I still can't believe the fine edge that all three blades came with. It used to take me a long time to get a shaving edge close to Canal Street's on my old T29 electricians knife - my EDC at the paper mills in my late teens - early 20s.

I have a couple on order from 2007; NIB. One is Amber Camel Bone (only 25 made?) the other Amber Jig Bone. I beleive the second will be in the EDC rotation with a couple of Case canoes. Looking forward to seeing my first Canal Street knives!!
