Rigid knives by Canal Street

Former Schrade President Walley Gardner and principal Joe Hufnagel joined with nine master cutlers to form a group of US craftsmen with over 300 years of combined knife making experience. The company they created is located in upstate New York where a long and rich tradition of quality knife making dates back to the 19th century.

Rigid knives by Canal Street

Postby philco » Thu Jun 29, 2017 1:20 am

I've been working on my small collection of Rigid brand knives made by Canal Street. So far I have gathered a congress, muskrat, gunstock jack, reverse gunstock stockman, whittler and a wildcat driller. All of them have the amber staged bone handles. Does anyone know of any other patterns that Canal Street produced with the Rigid branding ? Any other handle material ?

Phil - found this 2013 photo on BF which may help you with your confirmation.

To my (good) eye it looks like:
Your Top Right is the same as the BF Top Left
Your Middle Right is the same as the BF Middle Left
Your Bottom Right is the same as the BF Bottom Left
Your Bottom Left is the same as the BF Top Right

PS - very nice collection and display!

Thank you Tom and Tom. :)

Tom Chase I'll try to help you locate a CS whittler in amber stag bone. I have one in my collection so if I can locate another one I'll grab it for you. If, however, you find one first, please let me know.

Good going on the set Phil, I have one of the complete sets which I bought through A.G. Russell, which were sold in the black pouch as per picture. All of the knives are very slightly different than the CSC offerings of the same pattern.

Russell,

If I'm not mistaken, that photo bestgear posted above is one of your set taken from a Blade Forums post. That same picture and BF thread came up when I did a google search.

Yes that's right Phil. The set was originally posted on A.G. Russell's site "Cutting Edge". A set I could not resist seeing that they were from the CSC stable.

I can certainly understand the allure, however my sad pocketbook dictated that I acquire mine one at a time.........slowly. ::doh::
