Ken, I can almost guarantee that those knives are numbered, likely on the spine of the knife above the handle (which is probably why the seller didn't see it). The blades for both D'Holder patterns are done in-house and are Sandvik. You must be chompin' at the bit for that one!!! ::drool::

Ken,

I have the same D'Holder set ~ and the trailing drop point hunter one as well ~ the knives are indeed numbered ~ opening that case up is a royal pain in the butt too ~ my drop point hunter set was opened because the bozo that shipped it to me didn't pack it correctly ~ it led to a whole odyssey which resulted in my becoming part of the Canal Street Family

the D'Holder blades are made by the Canal Street Cutlery guys - D designed it - and it was turned into an integral mold - the folks at canal street finish put edges on them

the new knife will probably not be an integral and it is in design right now so I can't tell you how it will be assembled until the design is finished ~ Wally is toying with the idea of using titanium bolsters on it

D tends to use AT-34 steel on his own knives ~ eric is correct the CSC D'Holders are 19C27 sandvik steel

I hope that answers your questions

Michael

[quote="D.P. Hunter"]Ken,

Well I can not call my shipper a bozo, cuz he shipped it in the CS box and packing. But yet it came to me damaged. In the top right corner at the 45 angle. The wood was split about 3/4" open. Man you talk about a poor designed wood showcase. This is has to be the worst I have ever seen. Did CS think if the knives were in the case they never had to be removed for cleaning? The seller and I fixed a deal and I am going to send the knives only to CS to have them for some work on the handles. When I have the time and after I call first. I think I can fix the showcase.

Wally is toying with the idea of using titanium bolsters on it.
I hope they do not use bolsters on any D'Holders. They are a part of the blade on the good ones. Some of the ones I have do use bolsters, but not the Bowie's. That is so kool that is one reason I like in the D'Holders knives.
Here are two to compare. The Russell Knife used bolsters.

Eric,

Are both edges sharpened or just the one?

Hard to tell in the pics. ::doh::

Phil, just one, I think there are legal issues if you sharpen both edges.

Well I am going to say one thing nice about this and that is WOW.

Thats the best photo I have seen showing that knife... ::tu:: ::tu::

I think Canal Street should pay you or hire you for your super photo work Eric.

Can I have Canal Street send you 4 knives of mine to have photos made of their fine knives? I will even pay you a small amount ... ::tu:: ::tu:: I don't want to sell them just show them off.

Ken

Well cuz you say he is the BOMB (not sure what that means).

He has a new big job of takeing photos of 4 CS D'Holder Bowies for us to ::drool:: mess up some keyboards.

This is just a warning guys. So get your spear keyboards out or get a new one to replace the one your using now.

In fact if Eric wants to he can show them off here when he is done with them.

I think Canal Street should hire Eric to be their photo man for their knives.

I can tell you that GREAT Photos of knives sell better on ebay. So why not on a company web site too. !!!! Just look at some of the dealers photos selling Canal Street on the web... ::drool::

Well guys I am now the proud owner of a "Carry The Football" knife. I caught one deeply discounted and just couldn't pass it up. Even though it's way different, and to my way of thinking, quite impractical, I figure at some point it's likely to be one of the hardest to find of the Canal Street made knives. Right now it's looking like a better investment than most of the stocks in my retirement plan.

I'm wit chu Phil. As far a new collectable, I think the football will rank right at the top. If for no other reason than it's just so different. How do you like the handle and sheath? How's it feel?
