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.

Beauty Phil, that's another early one that was done for Red Hill. Didn't use those cut swedge muskrats for very long, they're somewhat scarce.

Eric as I'm sure you're already well aware, these Canal Street knives are getting scarce. I'm trying to pick up what I can as I go along but the prices are rising too, making it tough on an old poor boy like me. I'm just grateful to be able to add a few from time to time.

Nice one Phil....I am with you, grabbing up Canal Streets as I can, not all styles, just the ones I like.

Like you said, they are very elusive and when you do find the right one.....look out, they are not cheap...lol

Tom, the prices for CSC knives now is similar to the same pattern GEC knife. In other words, a little higher than when CSC was still in operation and closer to their deserved value.
Do you agree with this assessment ? or are prices higher than i think ?

Roland,

I have approx 350 Canal Street Knives and they are all great knives....fit & finish on mine are great. I believe the prices are going up since they closed the factory and they seem to be less and less available.

I was very fortunate to have a couple of connections at Canal Street and was able to grab up quite a few one of a kind knives and of course some of the customs as well. I have a Mastodon Tooth and a Mastodon bone barlow as well as 13 Pinch Lock backs that have the Burl Etching on them. I also have some Protypes that never went into production past the sample stages.

I am a Die Hard Schrade fan so the cross-over to Canal Street was an easy choice.

I truly believe that folks that have Canal Street knives, are sitting on these knives, either because they are like Phil and I (Collectors) or they are holding out for higher prices before they bring them out.....just my opinion though.

Tom

Santa delivered this Canal Street Stag Squeeze lockback for me this year. It is 5" closed and came with a belt sheath so it will likely get some belt time out of the house. It is a real shame that Canal Street no longer makes knives. This knife is impeccable.

That's a beauty! The natural stag were the first ones done, sold by A.G. Russell. He had a few first issues done in stag, the pinch (small lockback), half moonpie (single blade trapper), and barlow are a few. I think he had the canittler done as well.

Anybody able to help me better identify my latest buy? It’s an English Barlow Prototype in Tootsie Roll Bone. I would love to know the steel used. It has no serial number or identification. Thanks!!

The Canal Street Barlow has 14-4 CrMo Clip and Pen Blades

Danwilli22,

I actually own that same exact knife which is also a PROTOTYPE and a second one (PROTOTYPE) that has the Canal Street Etching on the Bolster. In addition I own another 20 of their English Barlows. I absolutely loved their Barlows.

"I absolutely loved their Barlows."
Oh good ! Because here is another: made in 2013 with very unique handles: "petrified Wildebeast" is what the paper insert says, but i think the word "bone" should be added.
The handles are dense, heavy, colorful and absolutely glass smooth. Note the swell at the end opposite the pivot; works to anchor the pinky finger for a more secure grip.
The backside handle looks dark in these pictures but it person it is shades of green.
