Latest Canal Street Additions

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.

Here are some additional knives

The first two pictures are of Pearl Handled knives (Prototypes that never went into production) The top one is a 3 blade knife with filed back springs and liners that CSC attempted, 1 of 1 produced.

The lower knife is a single blade, liner lock, Pearl Handle that CSC attempted to make for Queen. The Back, liners and liner lock are all filed. This knife is 1 of 1 also and never went into production.

The two pictures below that are pictures of a knife that CSC tried to dye their own Bone for the handles. This didn't work out as they could not control the heat in order to reach the desire color. This was their one and only attempt at dying their own bone...another 1 of 1

Love these knives.

Tom

Nice group of knives, especially when they are rare or hard to get hold of, but isn't picture number four a Wildcat Driller?

Could be a Wildcat Driller, however, I was told it was an Elephant's Toe.....Guess I need to do a little more research on it to be sure.

Thank you

Tom I'm very glad you've been able to acquire these knives. With the demise of Canal Street Cutlery, it's good to know they are in the hands of someone who will appreciate them fully for the rare treasures they are.

Thank you Phil and John!

I have several more to add that have found their way into my Schrade Cave since I posted these. Maybe I can get some pictures soon and get them posted up as well.

ok Tom, Those are some fine knives! Canal Street made some amazing knives and I will join you in showing off some of their craftsmanship. Going to start off with some muskrats. The first year anniversary is numbered 001 and has a unique nail nick compared to the others. Also no stamp on the tang. This came out of Wally's knife roll. The green bone muskrat Wally told me is an extremely rare bird, it was in the safe downstairs and is really one of my favorites. The chestnut is number 145. I will post more as I get time to take pics. Thanx again TOM for sharing you awesome collection.
