Excellent report guys. I'm particularly happy to know that Dimitri has finally come to see the light when it comes to Canal Street cutlery. :D

Are you guys camera shy ? ::poke::

A trip of a lifetime, possibly.
Wish I had been there.
Fabulous stuff all around.

To say that this road trip was enjoyable would be a gross understatement. Knives were certainly the pretense for the trip, but the comradery between all involved was an absolute pleasure!!!
As already stated, the folks at "Canal Street" cutlery and the "Wawarsing Knife Museum" were beyond gracious and accommodating. LT pushed aside not feeling well to spend hours with us in talking about the museum and answering unending questions. Any effort should be given by all to help support both these operations how ever possible. I would finally add that you will not find to finer gentlemen anywhere in the knife community than "MillerBros." and "glennbad", thank you both.

Great reports on trip that I am sure all of the rest of us are drooling over. Fantastic photos, Glen, I love seeing shots of display cases full of old knives. I likely can only dream of ever seeing such sights in person.
