American Chestnut Knives

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.

Dang that copper bolstered Barlow is handsome! What is the steel on those blades? That sure would age nicely with carbon steeled blades. Any reason why CS doesn't use carbon steel? In keeping in line with the Schrade tradition and the classic look of many of their patterns it sure would seem to make good sense...

There are those who are...and those who wish they were. He himself decides.

I picked up a couple of Canal Street knives with the Reclaimed American Chestnut handles at the Voyles Show in Pigeon Forge, Tn. this weekend. One is a pinch lockback and the other is a Catskill Hunter made for the NRA.

I picked up a Canal Street Chestnut Barlow about a year and a half ago--beautiful knife! I'll find and post some pictures...

Anyone know the final production numbers of the Chestnut for each pattern?

I still have a pinch lock.
